From ra­dio to reads

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Reads - – Ter­ence Toh

RA­DIO DJs Sam Mak (aka Dai Bou) and An­son Kow are good friends both on and off the air. The two, who co­host 988’s Morn­ing Up Break­fast Show, are also gym bud­dies – so , nat­u­rally, it seemed like a great idea to team up and write a book on health.

In their book, ti­tled My 30 Lessons, the duo shares ex­pe­ri­ences and lessons learned from their jour­ney to­wards a fit and healthy life­style. From dis­cov­er­ing the true mean­ing of the say­ing “no pain no gain” to find­ing ef­fec­tive ways to build good habits, Sam and An­son (they go by just first names) aim to in­spire read­ers with their entertaining anec­dotes and ob­ser­va­tions.

“First things first: this is not a fit­ness man­ual. The 30 lessons in­clude things that came to my mind when I was work­ing out at the gym, but don’t ex­pect tips on shap­ing up or los­ing weight. It’s more mo­ti­va­tional. It’s about well-being. It’s about life,” says Sam in a press re­lease.

“This book is an im­por­tant mile­stone in my decade-long ca­reer as a ra­dio an­nouncer,” An­son adds.

“I hope that My 30 Lessons will have a pos­i­tive im­pact on those who read it. I also want to thank read­ers in ad­vance for their sup­port.

“I am very grate­ful that Sam and I were able to bring this book idea to fruition.”

The book has a dou­ble cover fea­tur­ing both Sam and An­son.
