    Story
    (737)

    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    J. Camara says: "Insightful conquering life's challenges"
    "Good but too many product placements"

    Story
    What did you like best about Finding Ultra? What did you like least?

    Rich is obviously a driven individual and his story is encouraging to those of use who have let ourselves down in our forties. However, it preaches vegan ruthlessley and the product plaements are all too obvious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    If fact it's more about his running mate than him. Without his training partner he would have given up several times I reckon. Still, he manages to pull through several sticky moments by himself.


    What three words best describe Rich Roll’s performance?

    Inspiring, Mad, Preaching


    Was Finding Ultra worth the listening time?

    Yes

    Story

    This book is Moore's most personal to date - and will be irresistible to fans and foes alike. A sort of anti-memoir, Moore breaks the autobiographical mode while he hilariously presents 20 far-ranging, irreverant vignettes from his own life. This book is a wild, revealing, take-no-prisoners ride through the early life of Michael Moore. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, this is a book Michael Moore has been writing - and living - for a very long time.

    David says: "So that's how he got that way"
    "Micheal Moore is a Troubadour"

    If you could sum up Here Comes Trouble in three words, what would they be?

    Honest, Unflinching, Determined


    What did you like best about this story?

    His ability to never give up.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


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

    Anything is Possible


    Any additional comments?

    A "wandering minstrel" singing out loud his beliefs and mission throughout his life, not taking no for an answer and questioning everything. The stories are sometimes sad, sometimes unjust, sometimes uplifting but always leave you with a sense of "The World needs more Michael Moores"
