- Book Intro
Keep Dad Healthy is a book of health care tips for office workers. Employees who lead ordinary lives while hoping for changes and success in their lives will be able to gain practical tips on health care. Health is essential for success; if you are sick, it's impossible to play a leading role in an organization. Even if you find success and others see you as a successful person, it will mean nothing unless you're healthy. You can take care of your health only when you know about yourself. Author Shin Seungwhan explains why office workers who haven't learned about health care in school and haven't worried about their health due to being too busy at work and at home must take certain actions to stay healthy while also teaching them what they can do for their health with pictures.
If someone is not sick and has a nice figure, can we say that person is healthy? No, we can't. Health is not all about one's physical condition; it includes one's mental condition and the ability to maintain a social life.
This book offers multiple ways to check up on our health, regardless of whether we are wealthy or not, as more people are expected to live to 100 years of age in today's world.

In the Spring Water section at the end of each subtheme, basic knowledge about health is provided.
