This is a "tell-a-friend" worthy listen. Informative, entertaining and quirky. Whats not to like?
Jacobs has several of these "reality memoir" type books. The first two, Know It All and Living Biblically, are great reads. Guinea Pig Diaries was not so engaging in audio format and the writer's performance left much to be desired. With Healthiest Man, AJ is back in form displaying his signature blend of charming personal anecdote and fascinatingly obscure factual details to the listener's delight.
AJ's forays into the lesser known, more exotic forms of fringe exercise regiments will surely put a smile on your face.
Juvenile. Boring. Unbelievable. Poorly written.
No, thank you.
With a different performer. The quality of the reader's performance was on par with the quality of the author's writing, ghastly.
It has a nice cover design?
It is dated. Affirmations have value, but "I love my rectum"? Come on. Some passages are useful, but others have me just smiling and shaking my head, asking "Really?"
The sound quality is poor and this is clearly an old performance.
Bemusement, more like. I listened all the way through, took what I could and just kind of enjoyed the nostalgic feel of the recording as visions of a certain SNL characters floated through my mind.
Self-help is one of my favorite genres, because I need a lot of help . . . this title just isn't helpful. Look elsewhere.
Intriguing, engaging, hair-raising . . . for real!
The use of painting as a way to heal, and not theraputically . . . actually painting the sight back into a man.
The friend . . . you can take my inability to remember the character;s name as a sign of the story's overwhelming strength or my approaching a certain age, either way, Slattery's performance of the sincere man waiting on the beach with a pitcher of iced green tea who peppers his language with Spanish expressions makes the character all the more endearing.
