    If you could sum up Unstuff Your Life in three words, what would they be?

    Simplify, expel,move on


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unstuff Your Life?

    Don't berate yourself


    What does Andrew J. Mellen bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    This guy is tough, in a nice kind of way. If you have a friend who is OCD they really need to listen to this as they may hate him and then learn to love him. He has a tough narration style, point blank, do it and move on - kind of like a nice army sergeant - yeah right! Anyway, if you really need to get your stuff sorted you will appreciate the tough narration.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    duty sergeant meets paper clip and the paper clip wins!

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

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 2 mins)

    (1174)

    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.

    Igor N. says: "Are you looking for an attachement for the book?"
    "An interesting factual reference to eating"
    Overall

    If I had to write my review in 20 words or less it read like this:-
    You are what you eat, the quality of carbs impact our health, facts are everywhere but sometimes an author puts them together that just makes sense.

    Enjoy!

    In The Talent Code, award-winning journalist Daniel Coyle draws on cutting-edge research to reveal that ability really can be created and nurtured. In the process, he considers talent at work in venues as diverse as a music school in Dallas and a tennis academy near Moscow, demonstrating how the wiring of our brains can be transformed by the way we approach particular tasks. He reveals why some teaching methods are so much more effective than others.

    "A guide to another way of learning"
    Overall

    Every so often you read/listen to a book and take away a few ideas that you can apply. This book made me marvel at the topic - what do all the great performers have in common - it seems that practice, fantastic coaches and being the skill you are learning are all key. Not a surprise really, but the book has twists and turns throughtout, provides a research based approach and lots of practical wisdom. I would also challenge any teacher that wants to be a fantastic resource to their students to get a copy as well.

    Enjoy!

    Richard is a modern day everyman; a middle-aged divorcee trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job getting his life under control that he needs no one. His life has slowed almost to a standstill until two incidents conspire to hurl him back into the world. One day he wakes up with a knotty cramp in his back, which rapidly develops into an all-consuming pain. At the same time a wide hole appears outside his living room window, threatening the foundations of his house.

    This is classic, I am having a mid life crisis kind of book and that is the way the bizarre tale tracks. A great story and god knows don't we all need a little of that sometimes.

    In Age Is Just a Number, Dara Torres reveals how the dream of an Olympic comeback first came to her when she was months into her first, hard-won pregnancy. With humor and candor, Dara recounts how she returned to serious training while nursing her infant daughter and contending with her beloved father's long battle with cancer. A truly self-made legend, her story will resonate with women of all ages and with anyone daring to entertain a seemingly impossible dream.

    This is a beautiful recording of a fantastic book. It is written to reflect a couple of decades of personal, physical amd philosophical challenges. An inspiring story that accurately reflects the title. It is also a historical reflection of the evolution of swimming. Enjoy!
