    The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those thoughts trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many of us often feel like we're controlled by our emotions. Our lives would be much improved is we controlled them. Joyce Meyer discusses the way that the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts, and then - emotion by emotion - she explains how we can manage our reactions to those emotions.

    Story

    I'm a huge Joyce Meyer fan - have maybe 7-8 of her seminar teachings and 3-4 books. This is my first audiobook from her. Great, practical and inspired info that follows the bible very closely. The narrator leaves a lot to be desired - her tone of voice sounds like she is trying to explain a complicated subject to a room full of second graders. Still, the content in this book makes it worth putting up with the poor narration.

  • Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

    Story

    Listened to the whole thing in less than 24 hours. I followed a version of a carb-restricted diet a year ago along with diet & exercise and had a 35# weight loss, much improved energy, and other health benefits... and then dropped both the carb restriction and the exercise. I am not a medical professional. But Taubes offers compelling evidence. The end of the book, with its 'if carb restriction doesn't work, be patient; you are undoing years of fat cell programming' message is a little lame. but it's not like eating carbs is a real option (for me, anyway). some really paradigm-shifting stuff here, esp about saturated fat and heart disease. recommended, but I got it with a free credit, and not sure I would have paid full price for it. I think the narrator said "casual" instead of "causal" several times, which is ridiculous.
