More About Huckabee
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is the host of the number one rated weekend hit "HUCKABEE" on the Fox News Channel, and is heard three times daily across the nation on the "Huckabee Report" on the Citadel Media Network, it is the fastest growing new program on the Citadel Media Network in years.

This is his second book on the New York Times Bestseller List joining Do The Right Thing, which was released in 2008.
After his campaign for the Republican nomination for President in 2008, in which he finished second to John McCain, he formed HuckPac to assist Conservative Republicans running for office nationwide and has amassed a volunteer team with thousands of activists in all 50 states.
From 1996-2007, Huckabee served as the 44th Governor of Arkansas and was a nationally recognized leader; honored by several renowned publications and organizations for his accomplishments. Governing Magazine named him as one of its 'Public Officials of the Year' for 2005, Time Magazine honored him as, "....one of the five best governors in America....", and later in the same year, Huckabee received the American Association of Retired Person's Impact Award. In 2007, he was presented with the Music for Life Award by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), for his commitment to music education. He served as the Chairman of the prestigious National Governors Association as well as the Education Commission of the States and the Interstate Oil and Gas Commission.
A significant part of his early adult life was spent as a pastor and denominational leader. He became the youngest president ever of the Arkansas Southern Baptist State Convention, the largest denomination in Arkansas. Huckabee led rapidly growing congregations in Pine Bluff and Texarkana. He said those experiences gave him a deep sense of the problems faced by individuals and families.
Huckabee's efforts to improve his own health have received national attention. Diagnosed with Type II diabetes in 2003, he lost 110 pounds. Barely two years later, he had completed four marathons: The 2005 and 2006 Little Rock Marathons, the Marine Corps Marathon and the ING New York City Marathon.

Huckabee completed his fourth book on living a healthy lifestyle, Quit Digging Your Grave with a Knife and Fork: A 12-Stop Program to End Bad Habits and Begin a Healthy Lifestyle. This 12-stop program is a no-nonsense approach to health through lifestyle change rather than a simple diet and exercise plan.

Book purchase Jun 20, 2008
Very good book, halfway through. Author has a wonderful sense of humor making it an easy read.
Basic and simple Common Sense Jun 13, 2008
With a little humor, much common sense, and basic plain-spoken language, Mr. Huckabee gives attainable targets for feeling better, thinner and healthier. He does not create lofty ideals from the start that are unrealistic. This book is simple, short and very easy to read and understand. He does not fill you with bizarre recipes, expensive ingredients, or try to sell you "the plan's" meals and supplements. He offers basic friendly advice showing you that you CAN do it, how he did it and how he got to be where he needed to do it.
This about getting healthy, not losing weight ! May 27, 2008
The governor has written an excellent book about how to improve your health. I am a family physician and I now routinely recommend it to my male executives who feel they just don't have the time nor inclination to work on healthier lifestyles.
Fun book but nothing really new Apr 25, 2008
It was fun to read his anecdotes and the twist of talking about the twelve STOPS instead of steps was kind of cute. The actual eating lessons were nothing new.
This Book Has Helped Me Apr 9, 2008
I'm only about halfway through this book, but even the title alone has given me a lot of help and inspiration to change my ways. I mean, that's exactly what I've been doing...digging my grave with my knife and fork.
There are some great tips and reading this book just makes one realize how much one has to change and eat right to live right. I would recommend this book.
