This is a great listen for men or women. Since I am a woman, I would like to see a women's version of it told by two women. That aside, it's easy to read and very informative. I talked about it so much that my husband willingly listened to it too. He loved the “fresh powder skiing description - he said it was perfect and that the author definitely new what he was talking about!
I absolutely loved it! I read everything I can get my hands on about health and this one really got me excited about the real benefits of exercise. I liked the fact that both authors spoke and explain stuff.
Well maybe that is a little bit strong, but this is a great book. The presentation of the audio book was oustanding also. I lost 75 lbs and feel great from doing many of the things recommended in this book. Once I found this audio book I was able to fine-tune what I was doing as far as exercise and diet. What they talk about works! Get this audio book and get a copy for those you care about.
I am 39 year old Male who always "planned" to do exercise but was never regular. Tried several new years resolutions to get me started.
This audio book is very motivating and so far I am exercising for last 8 weeks regularly for 6 days a week. I stronly recommend it. The audio part has its own advantages amd I doubt I would have been this much motivated if I had just read the book.
Any person (man or women) near or over 50 years old must read this book. I purchased the audio version and found it full of super information about the aging process and the latter years of life. It was healthy to find out that life does not end in the 50s, 60s, or even 70s. The science and the plain common sense approach to aging was encouraging. It is a must read for anybody struggling with the rapid changes of aging. I highly recommend it.
The presentation is entertaining, the information is well presented and motivational. The audio was worh the money and time. I 've listened to it twice, bought a heart rate monitor, and joined a bycicle club. I am hooked on the plan !
I thought that the voice of Chris made the book much more interesting. I am going to listen to it a second time. One of my favorite books.
I maintain an above-average workout routine. And don't need a lot of coaching to make me realize the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The narration in the book is a bit too dramatic for me. The "real life" examples the author uses are questionable. Get up tommorrow and commit to a 60-minute cardiovascular workout 5 times a week. Ride a bike 20 miles every other day, and start to lift weights. Use the money you would have spent on this book towards a heart monitor, and spare yourself of this book. On the other side, if your idea of a workout is a trip to the fridge to get another beer for the pizza you're eating then YOU NEED HELP. Buy this book. It will help you change your life.
I wish that I could give this recording five stars because the topic is controversial and the science presented is rational, thought-provoking and extremely interesting. What irritated me is the sidekick comments delivered by Chris Crowley that were aimed exclusively at men, and were at points offensive. I really could have done without his part of the recording - it just ruined it all for me and I couldn't even click forward or backward to avoid his sections.
