Laird Hamlton's ''Forces of Nature'' book and Interview

I was talking with a friend who mentioned she watched an interview with Laird Hamilton and his aquatic lifestyle and they showed Stand Up Paddle Surfing during the interview. After watching the news segment, she's interested in paddle surfing ...
Laird has a new book due out in Oct/Nov..
Laird Hamilton 'Force of Nature: Mind, Body, Soul' (And, of Course, Surfing)

(Amazon's editorial review of the book..)
With a superhero’s physique, a superhuman athlete/model wife, and the ocean as his office, Laird Hamilton’s charmed lifestyle is enviable.
Now, for the first time, he shares his secrets for living a perfectly balanced life. Force of Nature opens a window onto the unique physical regimens, mental strategies, and spiritual beliefs that has allowed Hamilton to do what he loves, while being surrounded by family and radiating peak health and fitness.
Hamilton shares his life-enhancing approach to constantly challenging oneself to improve in three distinct areas:
-body—Hamilton's comprehensive guide for fitness, nutrition, injury prevention, and rehabilitation also includes his first-ever surf tutorial with specific how-to information about his sport
-mind—in this revealing look at the inner life of a world-class athlete, Hamilton talks about conquering fear, adversity, and negativity while embracing the promise of change that each new day holds-soul—from finding one's passion to traveling a less-trodden path, Hamilton invites readers to look inward, forging their own set of core spiritual beliefs that will literally determine the course of their lives
To elite athletes, blockbuster celebrities, and the rest of us, Laird Hamilton has proven to be the authority on performance and living as fully as possible. Now he shares his recipe for living in this highly anticipated book.
