Anthony Field

If you have children, you surely recognize Anthony Field as the blue Wiggle of the popular Australian children's music group the Wiggles that aired on Disney channel for many years and currently airs on other television channels. My children loved the show, and I was even front row at a Wiggles concert with my daughter in 2006. The Wiggles have sold more than 30 million DVDs and CDs worldwide. After 21 years, the Wiggles continue to tour, but now with a new group of four, including Anthony,  Emma Watkins, Lachlan Gillespie, and Simon Pryce.

The four original members of the Wiggles had the honor of being appointed Members in the Order of Australia for their service to the arts in Australia and for their contributions to charities in 2010.  Anthony hosts the Australian reality television series RSPCA Animal Rescue as well.

Field also penned an autobiography detailing how he overcame depression, illness and chronic pain to get his life back. "How I Got My Wiggle Back" was released in 2012.

What is Anthony Field's book recommendation?

I recently asked Anthony about his favorite book.

Anthony tweeted, "My fave book is a spiritual book,"The Broken Body" by Jean Vanier. It helps this broken man cope!. A reflective read!"

He added, "I take that book everywhere with me, read a few paragraphs here and there, beautiful."

Thank you, Anthony!

Enjoy a Wiggles song!

A real life Wiggle! Sounds like an inspiring dude. Plus, he gets extra credit from me for doing the animal rescue thing. :-)
