Starting on a shoestring in the Arizona desert, Mel and Enid Zuckerman transformed a run-down dude ranch into the international gold standard for the spa and wellness industry. They had no experience and very little cash, but they shared an unshakable faith in their vision. Today, Canyon Ranch is the model all others strive to copy. It all began with one man, 50 years old, overwrought, overweight and restless, who went to a fat farm to lose some pounds. There, he had an Aha! moment that transformed his life and, in the process, launched a wellness revolution. An inspirational story for anyone who wonders if there’s still time to invent a happier, healthier life.
