Phil is the co-author of The 17 Hour Fast with Dr. Frank Merritt, Waterman 2.0 with Kelly Starrett, Game Changer with Fergus Connolly, and Unplugged with Andy Galpin and Brian Mackenzie.I am fascinated with and really enjoyed diving into with Phil today is the creative process behind a work of art that goes unseen.
