Dr Joseph Maroon’s book, Square One: A Simple Guide to a Balanced Life, was officially released on December 5, 2018. In the book, after becoming a world-class neurosurgeon, Dr. Joseph Maroon felt he’d achieved success. But at the age of forty-one, a rapid series of losses and setbacks led him into a baffling new reality—and straight into the darkness of depression. Maroon’s unexpected savior was a slim, leather-bound book titled I Dare You, which taught him how to address four key areas vital to rebalancing his life: good health, a sense of spirituality, meaningful work, and strong relationships. In Square One, Maroon combines deeply personal anecdotes with illuminating scientific explanations to help readers rebalance their priorities. With keen insights into what it takes to avoid emotional, spiritual, and physical burnout and to seek more joy and creativity in life, Maroon guides readers back to “square one” so they can lead more balanced lives and achieve success.
