The former president's first endorsement of a health-conscious book came when he wrote the foreword for Eddie Shapes Up, a children's book about a boy who manages to turn his unhealthy eating habits around. Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch authored the book with his sister, Pat Koch Thalor. Clinton wrote, "I'm delighted to see books like Eddie Shapes Up encouraging children to embrace wellness at an early age. After undergoing two heart surgeries, I knew I would have to change my lifestyle in order to stay well. The rewards of good health have made it all worthwhile. I only wish I had started on this adventure as a young man."
Clinton's third book endorsement arrives in February, when Dr. Mark Hyman's The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now is published.
