Publisher's Summary

People Fuel outlines the 22 relational nutrients we all need to cultivate good relationships that provide energy, focus, and the support to be all you were meant to be.

Just as good nutrition is necessary for a healthy body and physical energy, so the right kinds of relationships are critical to living a successful and confident life. If we don't take enough iron, we can develop anemia. Too little calcium leads to bone disease. In the same way, we need the 22 relational nutrients essential to a healthy, energized, and productive life.

In People Fuel, Dr. John Townsend - psychologist, leadership consultant, and coauthor of the New York Times best-selling Boundaries - shows you how truly good relationships give you energy, focus, and the support you need to succeed. Through stories and clear applications, Dr. Townsend shows you how to:

  • Identify the types of people who can be either energy gains or energy drains
  • Receive from relationships the help and support that God intended
  • Create higher-quality connections with your family, friends, and coworkers
  • Boost your productivity and creativity at work
  • Build your essential life team

As we learn to tap into these vital nutrients from quality relationships, we will experience more energy, positivity, focus, and the exponential growth to become the confident people God created us to be.

People Fuel is also available in Spanish, Gente que Sume

Reference charts, tables, and appendix available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Needs more enunciation

Great book with great information. Unfortunately the words rolled together and the relationship nutrient tags sort of got steamrolled by the pace. Emphasize the tags more and the audio book would be solid.

nail meet head

In the 1st paragraph I could relate. I felt a little disrespected being so exposed but I can no longer hide from the actual truth when someone speaks it. Will be reading this book along Wil re-listening to it with a highlighter & pencil taking big notes! ALL People need to read, listen or both to People Fuel!!! loved it!

Phenomenal AudioBook

A necessity for any leader or individual who does not find personal connections to come naturally. As an Introvert, this book helped me to better see the necessity and application of relationships centered around emotional needs. Will definitely re-listen.

So helpful and practical

This book helped me realize the importance of people in our lives, relational nutrients, and how to give and receive them. I'm looking forward to implementing the concepts and ideas.

Useful for everyone

This book covers so many things that most people think are a mystery about relationships. It is one I recommend to all of my business friends and their spouses.

Not for me

Way too many references to the Bible, which I found incredibly distracting. Also found the premise of the book very fluffy and high level. Ultimately, there is very little here that I could translate to the real world. I hope others find this more useful than I did.
