    Story

    Over the last 10 years, I've read many books on exercise and nutrition and this is by far my favorite. It cuts through all the hype and just gives you the facts on how to get in fantastic shape. It is easy to listen to and understand as an audio book. The content is supported by the latest science and cuts through all the fad ideas that are floating around out there. It provides a perfect exercise and dieting framework to get you in fantastic shape. There are no gimmicks or false promises in this book; it sticks to what has truly worked for all the people that are in awesome shape without the use of steroids.

    It takes a lot of hard work to get in great shape and there is just no way around that, but the road is MUCH easier if you are being as effective as possible with your workouts, diet, and supplementation. You can't go wrong with this book if you follow it to the letter.

    Story

    There are hundreds of good tips in this book. It dispels dozens of bits of long-held exercise dogma with plenty of hard science. I would put it in my top five books on exercise and nutrition, and I plan to download the Kindle version and will refer to it often.

  • Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain

    Story

    Okay. Let me sum the book up for you. Exercise helps build stronger, better working brains. There's lots of research to prove this. There. I just saved you a credit. And a few thousand brain cells lost to utter boredom and a rather hard-to-listen-to narration.

  • "Good Solid Advice"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    I've done all the diets over the past 20 years of my life and can appreciate how this author looks at all of them (briefly) and realistically. At the end of the day, as we all know but dont want to know is - less calories, more exercise = weight loss. Period.
    I am one of those people that needs a little more hand holding than that though, and I appreciated this books common sense, no magic pill, realistic approach. Having done many diets in the 90's and also done different exercise programs I think the info here is sold and very good advice.
    If you are looking for "do this one thing and you will be skinny in 3 weeks!" rah rah books, this isn't for you. If you want honest and down to earth info that works (if you do!) then this is a good buy for you.
    I had no problems with the narrator at all. Found it an easy listen, broken up over a couple days.

    Robert Penn has saddled up nearly every day of his adult life. In his late 20s, he pedaled 25,000 miles around the world. Today he rides to get to work, sometimes for work, to bathe in air and sunshine, to travel, to go shopping, to stay sane, and to skip bath time with his kids. He's no Sunday pedal pusher. So when the time came for a new bike, he decided to pull out all the stops. He would build his dream bike, the bike he would ride for the rest of his life; a customized machine that reflects the joy of cycling.

    I tried everything. Changing shoes, changing nutrition, changing my running form and changing my training plan. I even prayed to the running gods! It didn't matter. Every time I'd bolt out the door for a run something new would hurt. I was a broken down, frustrated runner. At the time, the more things I changed, the more it felt like I was wasting my time. But slowly my running started to improve. My body felt better...and healthier. I got fitter...and I got faster.

Scientific knowledge has greatly expanded our understanding of how the human body works, laying many previously held ideas about fitness and nutrition to rest.
