The Spark: Now in Paperback (with 3 GREAT Reasons to Buy)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, December 16, 2010



Last year, SparkPeople reached a major goal and milestone when we released our first book, The Spark, and subsequently landed on several best-seller lists thanks to the support and sales that were largely driven by our members.

We are proud to announce the release of the paperback version of The Spark , which is now available at online and brick-and-mortar booksellers. There are three great things that really distinguish this paperback version from our original hardcover:

  1. An everyday low price. Paperbacks are always less expensive than hardback books, making them more accessible for a wider range of people. Currently this book is selling online for less than $10, and we expect that price to stay low for the long-term.

  2. The addition of a brand new, 30-page "Strong Start Guide." We wanted to make the paperback special, so when we discovered that 50 percent of people report losing their momentum within two weeks of starting a diet, that's where we focused. We conducted a new survey of over 2,000 members and found that "strong starters" lost twice as much weight in the first two weeks and were five times more likely to reach their goal than "false starters" because of seven key habits that helped them get off to a good start. You can learn about these surprising findings in the paperback only!

  3. New free bonuses. To sweeten the already great deal, we're including some free bonuses for those who purchase the paperback: 500 bonus SparkPoints, membership to our online book bonus program (only available to book buyers), and a free copy of a special "SparkPeople" issue of All You magazine, which features more than 100 pages of additional recipes, tips, workouts and stories from SparkPeople's coaches and members! This is our only and best offer for free bonuses, so don't delay—only available while supplies last.


We hope you will consider treating yourself—and your friends and family members—to the gift of a lifetime of health and fitness by purchasing The Spark in paperback this holiday season.

Help yourself get off to a strong start on your goals for 2011 by acting now!

    I just ordered it from an online bookstore, is there any way I can get the 500 points or is that only for buying it from your site? Thanks!

  I agree with some of the other 'early' hardcover purchasers. Why do we have to also buy the paperback to get the 30-page Strong Start Guide? That doesn't seem fair to me.

    I agree with KAPOWILICIOUS. I hope that hardcover purchasers are able to obtain the Strong Start guide. I rushed to buy the audiobook when the hardcover was released in part to show support to SP. It would be a great move to make it downloadable to us as well.

    Wondering if the new content is available to current owners of The Spark hardcover edition anywhere on the site? It'd be nice to not be punished by missing out on additional content for buying the book early!

    I'd love to get it. Do you have to buy from the site to get the bonuses? I know I purchased the hardback for a friend and there were things you could receive with that purchase but I could not find out how w/o buying it from site directly. Is there a way to log in your purchase (if bought off-site) or not? Anyone know the answer?

    I've ordered the book and received but haven't really sat down with it unti last night. I was having a Pity Party Blue Fit and started thumbing through the success stories. Low and behold I began to feel a little better about my goals. Well worth the buy.
