i drive a truck on the night shift. i love hearing interesting stories, i need some action to keep me awake :)
yes, it is full of reasonable information that reinforces the notion of living healthy.
the performance was fine
This book is a great review of the current science of exercise, diet and health.
This was good information. However, my emphasis in fitness is on powerlifting and it is tilted toward those who are into aerobic fitness, and especially running. This meant that, except for advice on HIIT/tabata for weight loss, it wasn't as much worth to me as it might be for some others.
I would recommend that friends read this book rather than try to live through this narration of it.
Filled with great, up-to-date information
The narrator detracted from the book in every possible way. At times she sounds like a computer-generated voice. She gets overly-perky at other times. The sentences are jerky, with pauses coming at odd times. It is difficult to follow the meaning of the sentences sometimes. I could only listen for brief intervals.
I was greatly looking forward to listening to this book, having heard the author on Fresh Air. I had read the first chapter of the book and I truly wish that I had ordered the book, rather than the audiobook. Let this be a lesson to me. From now on, I will listen to the sample before ordering. The narrator totally ruined this book for me. I've never written a review here before, but I feel so strongly about this poor choice of a narrator and I don't want anyone else to waste their money on it. Why couldn't they have let the author read her own book? She sounded great on Fresh Air.
