The younger next year franchise was recommended to me. I foolishly chose the 'for women' version. Perhaps because it was written and narrated by men, everything that focused on 'womens' issues was eye-rollingly condescending. Like many self-help books, this one could have been summed up in a pamphlet. The non-scientific, first person sections sounded like a horrible infomercial, repeating endlessly in a folksy singsong the same concepts and instructions. Couldn't listen to it. I'll just go thumb through a copy at the library.
I would leave the doctor's sections in and take out the others.
As mentioned above - falsely familiar and patronizing tone.
Interesting science and ideas. Just not enough for a whole book.
It was very motivational & certainly got me moving! I am 59 and needed this to give me the extra push I needed to up my exercise and nutritional program.
Love to write a review, but can't get it to download. Very disappointed. As others have said, Audible needs to sort out its system.
The book is good. Buy the book
I'm paying for a service I'm not using, and haven't had anyone respond to my email.
At the top.
They read as if they were truly talking to you.
This book motivated me to change my life. It probably saved my life. It did make me laugh. It is packed full of information. Easy to understand and follow.
This, or the men's version of this book, is a must read for EVERYONE! This one was written for women but I'd encourage men to listen to it too. And visuversa. I hope they write one geared toward young adults too before they go over the waterfall
It is nice to be reminded of the steps needed for a healthy life. The authors let you know that you CAN do it but don't wait a minute longer.
The reader for Chris is very slow - even when I set my ipod to "faster".
I am already a regular exerciser but I will begin using a heart monitor to push myself a lot more.
I really enjoyed this book; it was very thoughtfully done and gave the facts as well as the application to real life. I found it to have excellent suggestions on how to feel and live better. A necessary read for anyone over 40.
This seems to be a re-hash of a similar book about men. Just didn't fine anything new or particularly interesting about it.
