Praise for Vital Signs
Here's what people are saying about the new book.
“I’ve been at Tarcher/Penguin for two decades, and a lot of books have come across my desk in that time. But I have a small stack of them on my shelf---8 to be exact—and whenever I leave they'll be the books I’ll be the most proud to have published, because I believe they’ll make the most powerful and enduring impact in the world. Vital Signs is in that stack.”

Our society seems increasingly obsessed with security and playing it safe in every area of life. But along with this trend often comes a deadening and listlessness in living---as risk-taking, excitement, and novelty are shoved aside. Gregg Levoy’s Vital Signs is a marvelous corrective to the trend. If you could use more passion, wonder, awe, and the sheer juice of being alive, this is your book.
