Freud once said: “People are not privileged observers of their own behavior.” Nor am I. So I can’t offer a third-person view of myself. Thus I present, in its entirety, “My Dinner with Al Lewis,” by Bob Merberg. I would say he is the best-known wellness blogger in the country who actually does corporate wellness for a corporation, except that you already knew that and in any case there aren’t any others.
It might be enlightening for you to compare his impression of me with that of HERO (“Outrageous”), Ron Goetzel (“Harmful to you, me and all of society”) and of course Michael O’Donnell (“Al is not an idiot”).
Great click-through. But the best part is these quotes. I don’t see them source but you should keep a list
Ron’s comes from our debate. Staywell’s comes from a letter Paul Terry has apparently sent around, in order to disparage me to certain people in the media, that someone on the HERO board saw. I don’t have a copy of the actual letter yet and I don’t know who it was sent to, but I’m going to “ask” for a copy. You can click through to Michael’s quote.
