A very inspiring books initially and like many autobiographies a story of triumph over adversity. As the book progressed through to his veganism and his rational for choosing this lifestyle I thought I could see how this might work. The insights into his training were helpful and made sense. Then we come to the awful pseudoscience which was outrageously misinforming, followed by product placement of his and other products. This just destroyed any affinity I had for the guy. This book is a stage for the launch of Rich Rolls new career as the next smiley new celebrity diet fad guru. He may be a vegan but boy does he know how to promote cheese.
It is full of snippits of history that lodge in your subconcious and then pop out in conversation which just make you sound clever.
It for the most part is just interesting all the way true.
It is more of a book you would listen for an hour and then come back to a couple of hours later. It needs to be digested it is so information-laden.
I didn't know he had an English accent! I thought he would sound like Richard Drayfuss.
The use of facts and science not anecdotes for a start. The whole underlying premise of the book is that he really wants his readers to quit eating meat. He has a rose-tinted view of the natural world, We are constantly reminded through-out how essentially despicable humans are. It is a joyless book and very bias.
No, but I will check the writers credentials in the future.
I was well impressed as I listened to this book I thought the idea was very good and that it was entertaining, perhaps this would make a good movie and that I must send a copy to my friend who lives in the the U.S.
Then in the last quarter section the characters seemed to turn from amusing to annoying, whining like spoilt L.A high school kids. I don't want to ruin it for anyone but the ending is just sentimental and vomit inducing , only suitable for the most hardcore Oprah Winfrey fan.
I have listened to this book and found it fascinating.I am a man living with two teenage daughters and partner, so life can be tough in this house of girls.If some one creates a hormonal control device that can balance the release of female hormones, they will not only win the Nobel Prize for Science but also the Nobel Peace Prize.They can have my house and i-pad too. Happy days!
Louann reads the book with a lovely warm voice full of sincerity.
I just bought her book on the male brain even though I already know it all!
