Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Americans are known for being optimists, but it doesn't take a cynic to see that our country is seriously off-track. We're upset by greedy corporate executives, who line their own pockets at others' expense; we're disgusted by gutless politicians, who pander to special interest groups; and we're appalled by a culture that glorifies materialism and self-gratification. It's as if "What's in it for me?" were our national motto. No wonder so many of us feel a deep yearning for a simpler time when civility was the norm and a handshake could seal any deal.
We can't turn back the clock or legislate our way out of society's malaise. But here's what wecan do: Look to the bedrock values all Americans share. We many never agree on Iraq, abortion, or how to boost our economy, but surely we can agree that "Our word should be our bond."
For a definition of those shared values, we need to look no further than the Cowboy Way. Living by a code that centers on principles like honesty, loyalty, and courage, the working cowboy is an enduring American hero--one providing just the kind of inspiration our country needs to find unity and hope in these troubled times.
It's not too late for us to get back to the qualities that made America great. Cowboy Values gives us a great place to start.

After a successful 35-year Wall Street career, James P. Owen found new purpose in being an author, inspirational speaker, and social entrepreneur. His book, &quot;Cowboy Ethics,&quot; a best-seller with more than 150,000 copies in circulation, and two follow-up volumes, &quot;Cowboy Values&quot; and &quot;The Try,&quot; shine a light on the importance of shared values and personal character in our society.

Now Jim is propelled by a new mission: showing older adults how to get and stay in shape. His latest book, &quot;Just Move! A New Approach to Fitness after 50&quot; (National Geographic), was inspired by his personal journey of transformation. As a 70-year-old “couch potato,” Jim resolved to do whatever it took to become fit and ease his chronic back pain. Seven years later, he is in better shape than he was in his twenties, and has become a passionate evangelist for fitness as a way of life. In his speaking engagements, he reminds audiences that being in shape helps older adults stay mobile, active, and independent, enabling a quality of life no amount of money can buy. Jim lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Stanya.
