    Is this another thing that is only available to U.S. citizens or can we Canadians pre-order to? - 10/15/2009   10:04:06 AM

    I ordered the book on Friday and I immediately sent the order confirmation, but I have yet to receive the points or certificate. How long should it take? - 10/13/2009   10:31:38 PM

    I just pre ordered my book. I have a question about the $20 dollar gift certificate. Do I email a copy of my invoice or just the order number.

    I pre-ordered mine last week. If you haven't gotten your bonuses yet, make sure you email a copy of your confirmation to the email address in the article! - 10/12/2009   12:26:16 PM
    I just ordered mine. Got it through Chapters/ cost of book $18.57 + S&H $7.48 + GST $1.30 = $27.35. - 10/12/2009   10:51:48 AM
    I did not order the book as I did not want to pay the almost equivalent value of the shipping and handling fees as the book. Thanks to #25, I will order mine through the Canadian source Chapters/Indigo. I am sure all the other glitches extra will sort itself out. - 10/12/2009   10:08:41 AM

    If you pre-ordered your book and haven't received your points, icon and $20 credit toward SP merchandise, then you want to look for a Thank You email in your PERSONAL email (it's not sent to your Spark Mail) that you registered with when you first started Spark. In that email is a link that opens to a form where you type in your Spark account name, password, where you pre-ordered it from and the order number. After you send it, the icon automatically appears, half of the points are awarded now (other half when the book comes out), and there's more information in that Thank You email about the $20 credit. It takes maybe a day before the icon and points appear. - 10/11/2009   4:52:54 PM

    So this is the site condensed into a book or are these limited addition things you can't read/get on the site unless you buy the book? - 10/11/2009   12:10:01 PM

    I pre ordered but I didnt get my extra points or my 20. gift cerf. How do I get them? - 10/11/2009   11:44:18 AM

    I can't wait to read it, but I can't afford to buy it. Will have to wait and see if it's at the local library. - 10/11/2009   10:23:26 AM

    I will read it from the library. - 10/11/2009   9:49:07 AM

    I didn't pre order my book because I've never bought anything over the net. But I'll pick it up from my book store as soon as it comes in. I really want it and will read it from cover to cover! Thanks for writing it! - 10/11/2009   8:51:42 AM

    I have pre-ordered my book and can't wait to get started reading it :-) - 10/11/2009   12:22:21 AM

    I pre ordered but I can't remember what I have to do. Do I have to give SparkPeople my confirmation number or something to prove that I preordered or does SP just automatically know? - 10/10/2009   11:42:07 PM
  • 44
    too funny- is saying it ships Dec 28th, but then the confirmation email says Jan 4. :) - 10/10/2009   9:08:48 PM
  • 43
    I preordered mine already, and thought I'd let SP know, but somehow it doesn't show up on my page. Is it because I'm using a Mac? Yeah, yeah, I'm pretty computer illiterate! - 10/10/2009   7:52:53 PM

    I cant wait for the book :-)

    looking forward to reading it. come to think of it, I should have ordered the cd since I'm in my car most of the time. oh well, this will just give me a reason to take a little more "me-time!" - 10/10/2009   7:07:47 PM

    I preordered mine through Amazon but NOT through the Spark page and still trying to get the points and gift certificate. Have sent my invoice to and haven't heard back. Can anyone help? Can't wait to get the book. Spark has changed my life! - 10/10/2009   5:44:03 PM

    I wonder if we have already Pre-Ordered, would we still get the $20 certificate to the SparkStore if we ordered another one? I wouldn't expect the 1,000 SparkPoints again.

    Any one know the answer? What better way to start off 2010 then reading and applying the best practices in this book? If one's New Year's resolution was to get healthier . . . well, here's the road map through that sometimes difficult journey.

    I pre- ordered mine, from B & N , paid for it and all but it doesn't register that I did on my spark page. Why not. Entered confirmation # and all. - 10/10/2009   3:42:29 PM
  • 37
    I ordered mine and now the waiting starts. - 10/10/2009   2:30:25 PM
    I pre-ordered mine and love that not only do we get all these extra SparkPoints and goodies, but we've got something really special to look forward to at the post-holiday beginning of the year - a SparkLing book to spur us onward! - 10/10/2009   12:59:22 PM

    I'm already in for 2 copies! - 10/10/2009   12:48:58 PM

    "Simply preorder your copy before October 12 at and email a copy of your confirmation to no later than October 16, 2009, and the SparkCertificate will be emailed to you directly!"

    Once you email a copy of your confirmation as instructed above (I bought mine from amazon), you'll receive an email with info on how to claim your points, SP store certificate, etc. This is really such a cool deal! Chapter 1 (elsewhere on the site you can download a .pdf copy) is great and I can't wait for the book to come out! - 10/10/2009   12:36:09 PM
