Take-Two's CEO Wrote A Fitness Book

Strauss Zelnick wrote a book about fitness.


The CEO of GTA developer Rockstar Games' parent company Take-Two Interactive has written a new book about health and fitness. Strauss Zelnick's new book, Becoming Ageless: The Four Secrets To Looking And Feeling Younger Than Ever, arrived earlier this month.

The 257-page book offers up a "three-month, detailed diet and exercise plan to create a leaner, more muscular and happier you." Zelnick wrote the book with Muscle & Fitness senior writer Zack Zeigler.

According to the book's official description, Becoming Ageless discusses the strategies "that allowed Zelnick to evolve from a skinny, out-of-shape business executive ... to one of the world's fittest and most physically active executives who reached his best-ever shape in his late 50s!"

Zelnick was the CEO of film company 20th Century Fox in his 30s. After resigning from that post, he was hired by Crystal Dynamics, though this was before the studio made Tomb Raider games. He is now Take-Two's CEO.

Recently, Zelnick appeared on a podcast to discuss his new book and to talk about how Take-Two considers itself to be an entertainment company instead of a games company.

Take-Two's next big release is Red Dead Redemption 2, which launches at the end of October for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Zelnick isn't the only video game personality with a book. Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski is currently writing a memoir of sorts--and it's shaping up well, apparently.

Becoming Ageless is published by Simon & Schuster, whose parent company--CBS--also owns GameSpot.
