    Drew Manning, a natural fitness junkie and devoted personal trainer, had never been overweight in his life. He never craved junk food or missed an opportunity to work out. Yet despite his obsession with fitness, he failed to help his clients reach their goals. Something had to give. Manning needed to understand what it was like to be on the other side; he had to spend a few months in his clients' shoes - or rather, size. For six months, Manning radically let himself go. He stopped exercising and ate the typical American diet.

    Story
    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Drew & his wife, Lynn, did a great job!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I purchased this book in an attempt to find some kind of motivation to work out and loose baby weight from my 4th baby who is 3 months old. I'd been so tired and getting motivated had been harder than ever. Fit to Fat to Fit was so endearing and insightful about the challenges I'm facing and helped me decide how and that it is possible to face them. The hope and humor Drew's story provided was priceless. I will probabley listen to it many times to remember the support and wisdom it provided as I go through my own jouney.

    From the experience of her own difficult pregnancy, MTV star Jenny McCarthy has fashioned the best-selling pregnancy/childbirth book of the last several decades. A delightful mixture of raw humor and serious advice, Belly Laughs tells you what you can really expect when you're expecting. Every imaginable topic related to pregnancy is covered, including whole chapters on morning sickness ("Barf-O-Rama"), cellulite gain, baby kicks, dreams, water retention, hot flashes, and more.

    A city has many lives and layers. London has more than most. A 12-year-old boy named George Chapman is about to find this out the hard way. On a school trip he's punished for something he didn't do. In a tiny act of rebellion, he lashes out at a small carving on the wall - unexpectedly breaking it off. And then something horrible does happen: a stone pterodactyl unpeels form the wall and starts chasing him. George is already running before his mind starts trying to tell him that this is impossible!

    Nicholas Flamel's heart almost broke as he watched his beloved Paris crumble before him. The city was destroyed by Dee and Machiavelli, but Flamel played his own role in the destruction. Sophie and Josh Newman show every sign of being the twins of prophecy, and Flamel had to protect them and the pages from the Dark Elders. But Nicholas grows weaker with each passing day. Perenelle is still trapped in Alcatraz, and now that Scatty has gone missing, the group is without protection.

    Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home and "spit-spot", she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks - lives will never be the same.
