It's truly a world wide web, but it can feel mighty small and cozy some days. Like today, when we at the dailySpark are thanking all of those bloggers and websites who have taken the time to review and feature The Spark. We're excited to read the reviews of The Spark from our esteemed peers--and our wonderful members as well! If you missed one, you should definitely check these out, if you haven't already.

To start, we got a great review at Diet-Blog.com, a great source for health and fitness news. "Look for this to be a bestseller in 2010," they wrote.

We were over the moon to see that Lisa "Hungry Girl" Lillien, who has already endorsed the book, wrote about us in her popular daily email. We feel the love: "The four-stage plan combines eating right, getting exercise, setting goals, and other positive stuff to motivate you. We feel energized just writing about it... And we LOVE SparkPeople.com. YAYAYAYAY for this book!" Right back at you, HG!

MizFit not only gave us her exclusive "MizFit Seal of Approval," but she also did a fabulous video review as well!

And read what the rest of these kind and talented bloggers had to say about the book!

    I've been a Sparker for over 2 years, so I'm sure there isn't anything in the book that I've not read already. LOL But, I hope a lot of NEWBIES find it on the shelf and come join us. - 1/31/2010   12:20:53 AM

    I am in the UK and ordered the Spark book fbefore christmas but have not yet received it, can`t wait for it to come so I can read it and pass it on to many of my friends who as yet are not motivated enough to spend time to go online for their weight and health. - 1/11/2010   6:28:34 AM

    I pre-orderd The Spark in October, it has already arrived at my daughter's house. Because I live overseas from Oct-June, I will not get the book until I go HOME to the USA in June (due to the horrible mail system where I am right now) but the other day I sent my niece to Barnes and Noble in New York to get me another copy. I told her to read the book as well (she is a member here but doesn't log in often). I will either donate the second copy to my tiny town library or pick a random Spark friend who can't afford the book and send it to them.
    Thank you!@ - 1/11/2010   4:26:05 AM

    I read the coimment people left on Amazon about the book. We should all think about doing that, it was very impressive and I know about Spark, imagine sparking people who don't know yet.... - 1/11/2010   2:32:00 AM

    I loved "The Spark" - it's based on solid goal setting theory and is broken down into manageable component parts so it's not too overwhelming. I think it's a model that will help lots of people gain success where they've struggled in the past. Nice going, Chris - I'm recommending "The Spark" and sparkpeople.com to friends and clients! - 1/10/2010   11:21:47 PM

    I haven't read it yet....BUT only because when I went looking for it, I found it on my husband desk and IT WAS OPENED!! Then a day later I looked and THE PAGES WERE BEING TURNED!!

    Oh my gosh!! I am so hoping my husband gets SPARKED!!

    I'll have to go out and buy another copy as I am NOT touching that book from his desk! - 1/10/2010   6:51:44 PM
    I started burning out around the beginning of November, despite the incredible support on this site. Sorry to say I felt very little interest in SP the entire month of December... Just got my copy of The Spark a few days ago, and already I'm starting to feel my flame within come back to life! January begins a new year, and a new me--recommitted! - 1/10/2010   6:38:06 PM
    I have been on (and off...ahem) Sparkpeople since late 2006 but I feel more inspired than I ever have since beginning to read the Spark. And not just about my diet and fitness regimen. This is really shaping up to be a good tool for planning out any goals, short term and long term. I love it!! - 1/10/2010   6:27:29 PM

    I have 'The Spark' myself and I love it. I'm buying a copy for a niece who is very overweight. But, I'm concerned she won't use any of the info in the book. I will give her the book and see what happens; she might surprise me. - 1/10/2010   10:58:56 AM

    I started to read The Spark and see why I'm having troubles. Need to redefine my goals. Will work on that this afternoon after Mass and a late Christmas dinner with a woman's club. - 1/10/2010   10:41:30 AM

    I bought The Spark yesterday and the woman at Barnes and Noble said that people have been going in there like crazy looking for this book. She said that it was a good sign of a great book. I am very excited to start reading it! - 1/10/2010   10:37:35 AM

    I'm loving it, After reading chapter two I realized my goals weren't specific enough so I'm starting to go back and rewrite my initial goals.

    I have blogged twice in the last three days about how this book is impacting me, not just in weight loss. I've been at Spark for about nine months and this book is just amazing! - 1/10/2010   7:40:53 AM

    I haven't read any other reviews, but I'm about half way through reading The Spark for the first time. Yes, this is a book I plan to keep and reread multiple times. There is so much in it and I will use it over and over to stay on track & set new goals-health wise and general-as I reach previously set goals. - 1/10/2010   7:33:34 AM

    I have been so busy exercising and tracking and reading SP articles that I haven't had much time to read the SPARK. However, the Miss Fit video has inspired me. I will make more time to read. - 1/10/2010   7:14:09 AM
