Hyperion Books And Krupp Kommunications Announce Instant #1 New York Times Hardcover Bestseller, THE SHIFT By "Good Morning America" Contributor Tory Johnson -- Launching Her "Shift With Tory" Tour!

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyperion Books, a division of Hachette Book Group, and Krupp Kommunications are pleased to announce celebrated television personality TORY JOHNSON'S instant achievement: THE SHIFT: HOW I FINALLY LOST WEIGHT AND DISCOVERED A HAPPIER LIFE (published 9/10/13 | $22.99) hitting #1 on the New York Times hardcover Advice How To List (9/29/13).

Hyperion Books purchased the title back in September 2012.  Heidi Krupp, well known for her successful public relations agency, represented Tory in the deal.  She said, "Over the years, K2 has worked with Tory in many capacities, from agent to PR, sponsorships to partnerships, but as her personal friend, I am so proud of Tory for making The Shift in her own life and then sharing her journey with the world."

With her just-published book and the launching of her cross-country "Shift with Tory" Tour on Monday, September 23, 2013 in New York City, Tory is on a mission to share her story and help others.

Tory Johnson said, "I'm not a doctor, trainer or nutritionist, nor am I offering a quick fix.  I'm a busy woman with a family who finally discovered that there's no pill, potion or plan that trumps patience and perseverance in the battle to lose weight.  The response to THE SHIFT has been overwhelming, and many messages have brought me to tears. I'm eager to meet with readers in six cities, to share my journey, listen to their stories, and help more people to shift for a healthier, happier life."

One conversation with a powerful woman executive at the network changed everything for Tory.  Only twenty months ago, a discrete comment that her "clothes didn't do her any favors" rang true for her; what she really heard was "lose weight, or lose your job."  Seventy-two pounds later, Tory's amazing 5-step plan and her inspiration fill the pages of THE SHIFT.  In the tradition of her prior multi-million-dollar companies, Spark & Hustle and Women for Hire, she's taking this message on the road with six nearly-sold-out events in New York, Dallas, Boston, Tampa, and Chicago. 

Readers and attendees will understand her powerful lessons:

  • Why What You Put in Your Head is More Important Than What You Put In Your Mouth
  • Every Day is Day One
  • Shift Gifts—the lessons you can use to continue the journey
  • Nail Polish Can Help You Lose Weight—it's True!

And so much more.
