Giving up the couch in favor of arduous first-time jogs or frustrating morning drives to the regional gym can be daunting, unpleasant, and seemingly near-impossible. Dear Couch, We're Through! proves that Jenn Benson not only understands this and all the other reasons we tend to resist exercise, but also how our approach to "getting fit" itself impacts what we actually get out of it. With an accessible format, spot-on humor, and plenty of real stories (triumphant and non), beginners and old pros alike can lean on Benson for all the quick advice and long-term strategy you'd expect from a personal trainer. Add it to your gym bag and feel free to mark it up—this is the perfect place to start your year (or month, or week) of exercise! ~Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo

As a professional eye-roller, things like meditation, psychoanalysis, and most other quasi-spiritual endeavors are beyond me. Dan Harris felt the same way.
After experiencing a very public anxiety attack, he sought ways to "tame the voice in his head" and just generally learn how to appreciate life. Run-ins with TV gurus such as Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra brought equal parts revelation and frustration for the author, who sought a more "real world" approach to being a happier person.
Part memoir, part intro-to-Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies, Harris breaks down the mumbo-jumbo and gets real about how he's come to face his anxiety head-on and be 10% Happier in the process. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
