    Reviews-
    • Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO , Global Wellness Institute, Global Wellness Summit Most books on health and wellness tackle a single element: some trendy new diet or fitness craze. But Linden Schaffer's Living Well on the Road offers a much-needed, much healthier antidote: a completely holistic approach (and a very fun and approachable one) to driving more wellness into virtually every aspect of your life – from getting better sleep, eating more sensibly, getting moving, being more mindful, and injecting more health into every hour of your life, whether at work or on the road for business. This is a sane, 365-degree roadmap to getting on a healthier path, filled with easy tips, tools, expert advice and the medical evidence to make practical change. After four decades in the world of spa and wellness, like Linden, I have firmly come to realize that the answer to leading a more fulfilling, healthier life is not just one thing – but so many things.

      Schaffer writes with clarity, and her many years in the industry show that she truly understands what she is advocating. This is a fantastic book for anyone living a stressed out, digitally addicted life, that can't make healthier eating, sleeping and exercising a reality.
    • Carol Massar, Bloomberg TV/Radio Anchor Living Well on the Road is what we all need to understand how to take back our lives, and put it on a healthier and happier path. I have experienced being "well on the road" courtesy of Linden. Her advice and approach has made my wellness travel experiences more impactful and lasting. But she's right. It's up to you to want to do this. Her book is an important first step in that process.
    • Alexandra Bonetti, founder of Bari Studio No matter who you are or where you are in your road to wellness, Living Well on the Road will inspire you to take action as soon as you start reading it. From leaders of corporations, to people starting a career, to students, to full-time parents... we will all benefit from this knowledgeable, well-researched and inspiring read.
    • Melissa Petitto, R.D., Chef and Author of 30-Minute Paleo Meals As someone who's job it is to keep her clients' mind and body healthy through diet, it is a breath of fresh air to read a book that gives one the tools needed to maintain that healthful headspace while traveling. Living Well on the Road is a gem in its ability to teach us that health and wellness are truly achievable no matter where we may lay our head each night. Linden Schaffer has done an incredible job of providing the reader with tangible statistics that greatly reinforce the 'Call Out' tips, making the book an easy to use guide for living well.
    • Rona Berg, Editor-in-Chief, Organic Spa Magazine In this smart and savvy book—loaded with cutting-edge research and stress-busting tips – Linden Schaffer chronicles her transformation from workaholic to wellness advocate as she guides you on your own personal journey to wellness!
    • Jason Wachob, Founder & CEO, mindbodygreen and Author of WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Resume Living Well on the Road is a must-read for any wellness travel warrior who is continually on the go.
    • Dina Kaplan, founder of The Path When it comes to the newest thinking, research and tips for living a healthier, happier life, Schaffer totally gets it. If you read one chapter of this book you'll feel better – if you read the entire book, your whole life will change.
