James F. Fixx

..On July 21, 1984, best-selling author James F. Fixx collapsed and died of a heart attack while he was running (Gross, 1984). The irony of his death escaped no one. The 52-year-old Fixx had penned the single most successful running book of the era, The Complete Book of Running (1978). In the book he touted the health-giving benefits of running and claimed that regular running offered virtual immunity to heart disease. Fixx's book sold half a million hardback copies in the United States in less than 9 months reaching number one on the New York Times book list (Lehmann-Haupt, 1978; Pace, 1978) . (1)
