Yes because I prefer audio format to written ones. I seem to be able to retain it more and enjoy it more.
idk, Any diet book I guess.
I'm didn't laugh or cry.
Narration was better, I believe because the author was the narrator. He spoke passionately at the parts that he was passionate about. There's no substitute for that.
You do not listen to this for the story or the narration...you want to hear the facts. The facts are fairly solid, but the narration? There were so many odd pauses I had to wonder: was he getting tired of his own book? Did he lose his place? Was he choking on a bean? I am sure the publisher did their best to get him to use a professional reader, but they should have tried harder. I've only heard one health book where the author did a great job of reading...Drop Dead Healthy... Fuhrman may be a great doc, but his reading does not do him any favors. If he ever writes another book, I hope he will use a professional reader (I certainly won't buy another book he narrates). Reviews are just the reviewer's opinion, and obviously, few agreed with me.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
Maybe in the future just to get some facts revised
The guidelines of the diet
some people live to eat .. and others eat to live
this book was great and contains a good hope that you can eliminate fatal diseases like cancer and diabetes with nutrition .. and I like this idea very much
No I also have the print version because of all the guides to cooking foods
It is science based and easy to understand
Short and to the point
If your tired of the fad diets and want your health back then this is the book for you
It was a very interesting book to listen to although if you want the recipes don't not get the audio part. U was so aggrevated that these were not included because it is a main part of this whole life change.
I love the fact that it was easy to understand and not full of big scientific lingo that the average person would not understand. Dr. F gives you the facts about the negative effects of fat, salt, sugar, dairy, meat and processed foods can have on our bodies. And shows us how a plant rich diet can result in improvements in weight and health.
I will say that, if you are going to use his system, you should buy the hard copy of the book.
Dr. Fuhram is a doctor, not a narrator. I did not expect King Lear...I enjoyed Dr. F's reading of his book.
I think when it hit me that drastic change calls for drastic measures and that if I wanted this, I would have to let things go (i.e. meat, dairy, bread, cookies...). And really, my health is more important that that! I am on week 2 of the 6 week program and I am down 15 pounds!
There is a TON of information in this book, Dr. Fuhrman knows nutrition.
Love him as a doctor, but pretty dry as a narrator..........
This is one book I have done better understanding in print. Don't get me wrong, this man is AWESOME in his research and passion for helping people really understand how nutrition affects us.
Lots of science and information, but still really hard to listen too. I should note, that I had to really make myself sit down, and absorb the book, but it was worth it! If Dr. Fuhrman was lecturing within 200 miles of me, I would be there!
Reasonable, balanced and nutritious
It can't be compared to other books of it's kind and I believe it will become a classic.
Dr. Fuhrman makes a lot of sense. This nutrition aproach can be the cornerstone of a healthy diet.
Interested in geneaology, history and writing
Yes but in small doses which is not my preference.
Never before and never again.
Though he had an interesting and well thought out message, the delivery was not to my liking. His attitude seemed pompous when he used phraseology similar to "are you with me" - "do you understand" multiple times. Though obvisously he has an understanding of the subject matter, I was irritated at his delivery.
No - would not watch especially if he was the moderator.
Too bad ... for me, the message was lost due to my frustration with the speaker.
It was very informative but needs print reference materials to go along with it.
I am now following the eat to live diet and in 2 weeks have lost 9 pounds and feel amazing.
If I had bought the actual audiobook at a bookstore it would have come with supplemental materials - the charts and graphs referred to by Dr. Fuhrman and the recipes so being an audible customer I am dissatisfied with the fact that i can't at least purchase the kindle version at a discounted price even if whispersync isn't available. How can you read/listen to a diet book and not want to see the corresponding meal plans or recipes that go with it?!? So while i enjoyed this listen and got alot of good information out of it, I feel it is important for buyers to know, you will need to purchase the book to really get the recipes, etc.
