PITTSBURGH, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- After establishing his world-class practice, Dr. Joseph

Maroon felt he'd reached the top. But at the age of forty-one, a series of personal and professional losses and setbacks led him into a baffling new reality—and straight into the darkness of depression. His savior was a thin leather-bound book
by William H. Danforth called 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. As his balance returned, Dr. Maroon applied his clinical experience to his newfound peace: What is it about these four sides of the human experience that brings us balance? What does science tell us about living well?

Square One: A Simple Guide to a Balanced Life (Mascot Books, 2018) combines deeply personal anecdotes with illuminating scientific explanations to help readers balance their priorities and find their center. Using Danforth's four pillars, Dr. Maroon explores the science behind a balanced life and how we can use them to avoid emotional, spiritual, and physical burnout—an increasingly prevalent problem, especially in high-impact professions like law, medicine, and public service. "Without recognizing burnout for what it is, it becomes harder to address and correct," he writes. "In addition to affecting job performance, burnout can wreak havoc on personal lives, with consequences like substance abuse, divorce, dysfunctional families, disengagement, and decreased social skills."

Square living has given Dr. Maroon the outlook he needed to excel. He has served as the team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1981 and is a leading innovator in concussion treatment. He takes a whole-person approach to health and frequently speaks as a nutrition and healthy living expert in venues around the country. "I hope these pages can help [readers] find the healing power of balance. A happier, truly successful life awaits."

Dr. Joseph Maroon is available for interviews, features, and appearances. For more information, please contact Michelle Webber at michelle@mascotbooks.com or visit maroonsquareone.com.
