Updated: Nov 1, 2018

As the review copies are being distributed to various media outlets and influencers, we’re starting to get some early feedback on the book, and I have to say, it’s as invigorating as it is humbling. From Daniel Pink (!) to Jessamyn Stanley and various outlets in between, the feedback underscores the importance of the message that Physical Disobedience carries. If you want to pre-order your copy, you can do so here. Otherwise, it goes on sale August 21, 2018.

Physical Disobedience dives in to the intrinsic value of human bodies at work and at play—championing women's bodies, in particular, as uniquely powerful in their diversity. This book decodes the many ways physiological fluency can support both happiness and progress. A must read for any man or woman."

- Daniel Pink, New York Times Bestselling Author of WHEN and DRIVE

“Finally—a health and wellness manifesto for the rest of us.”

- Jessamyn Stanley, Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get on the Mat, Love Your Body

"A critically important, exceptionally informative, deftly crafted, impressively insightful book, a must read for every woman of every age who is concerned with their physical appearance. Physical Disobedience is an essential addition to personal, community, and academic libraries."

- Midwest Book Review

"There is hope in this book. Physical Disobedience is a dystopian survival guide, a feminist's manual that debunks, redefines, and brings true beauty and health into the light."

- Mary Gauthier, musician

"At times shocking, at times laugh out loud funny, and at times hugely enlightening and insightful, Physical Disobedience will help set you on the right tracks towards health and happiness—and provide you with plenty of practical tips and know-how on how best to stay there.”

- Emma-Kate Lidbury, professional triathlete and six time Ironman 70.3 champion

“In this spirited mixture of fitness guide and self-help, personal trainer Coomer argues that women can better fight injustice by keeping strong and fit, asserting that 'taking care of our bodies is a form of political action...' A unique and 'unruly' manual for improving both oneself and the world."

- Publisher's Weekly

“ Coomer is a personal trainer and self-proclaimed diet abolitionist whose goal is to empower women and set them free from their negative thoughts about themselves and their bodies. Here she addresses such topics as fitness, food, alternative therapies, and motherhood, all woven in with themes of modern feminism and gender equality. Coomer’s prose is inspiring and refreshing... Something special sets Physical Disobedience apart from other self-help books... For women looking to embrace their bodies, Coomer's "unruly" guide is a great place to start. "

- Booklist

“ If you are a woman from 16-86 and only have the time to read one self-help, self-improvement book, make it Sarah Hays Coomer's "Physical Disobedience: An Unruly Guide to Health and Stamina for the Modern Feminist"! Especially well written and thoroughly 'reader friendly' in tone... "Physical Disobedience" is a life-enhancing, inspired, and inspiring read from cover-to-cover."

- Bethany's Bookshelf, Midwest Book Review
