living-forward-hyatt-harkavyLiving Forward by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy has achieved wide recognition and acclaim since its March 1 release, including top 10 status on three national best-seller lists. The Baker Books title from Baker Publishing Group achieved the No. 2 ranking on the Publishers Weekly Hardcover Nonfiction list, No. 6 on the USA Today list and No. 3 on the Wall Street Journal Nonfiction Combined list.

In Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want, Hyatt and Harkavy show readers how to draft a Life Plan, a road map to living the life they truly desire. Hyatt is the former chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers. Harkavy has been coaching business leaders for more than 25 years.

Dwight Baker, president and CEO of Baker Publishing Group, said Living Forward met the company’s high expectations.

Living Forward was released with high expectations from the authors and our publishing team, and we are impressed and encouraged by its swift appearance on these best-seller lists,” Baker said. “Many new readers are now preparing their Life Plans, and we are amazed to consider the outcome of those personal transformations.”

Hyatt and Harkavy said they were thrilled at the book’s success.

“My wife, Gail, told me recently that Living Forward was very likely the most important message we’ve shared to date,” Hyatt said. “The response to the book’s release is proof that she was right. ‘Thank you’ hardly seems sufficient to all of those who have supported, encouraged, led, shared and bought into the idea of life planning that Daniel and I share in Living Forward.”

“After decades of coaching executives through life planning, we knew that the message of Living Forward had the power to change the way people live and lead,” Harkavy said. “We are thrilled to see it getting into the hands of so many people in just its first weeks of release and are looking forward to seeing the impact that Living Forward can have as even more people read it and apply it to their own lives.”
