Overall, I enjoyed listening to this book. Sly did good by choosing someone else to narrate this. He touches on the reality of fitness, and offers some good advice. Like most fitness and diet programs, if you've used a few in the past, you'll find yourself picking and choosing what will help you. Comparing it to Bill Phillips talking on the Body For Life program, it's not near as motivating, even leaving you with a little dry feeling. But it will get you solid advice, and it's pretty straight forward. A quick listen at just under three hours. I'll give this book four stars.
I found this book totally entertaining. The narrator does a very good job. He changes up tones to keep things interesting. Though trying to sound like a female at times was kind of funny. This book did open my eyes to some of what waiters go through when they pick this as a career path. I give this book all five stars without hesitation.
This book is very much an eye opener when it comes to faith in religion. The information given used along side of common sense. And I believe between Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins, many will open there eyes to the truth in regards to following blind faith.
The only problem I did have with this audio book is the narrator. He wasn't terrible, but he wasn't that great either. The narration put a picture in my head of a man staring down at a book in a classroom reading sentence after sentence. Kind of like a science teacher I had with horn-rimmed glasses.
The narrator lacked emotion and flow while reading. So out of five stars, this book loses one star due to the narrator.
Well, after I heard the other two hour book he has here on Audible. Thought I'd try this four hour book to see if it was as good. However, most of this audio seems to be his last audio, but just elaborates more on each story he tells. He uses personal stories to give examples of what a positive attuditude does. And these personal stories are the same on both books, with a few slight changes here and there. So if you heard the other audio book here by this author. Then you already heard this one as well. But if you didn't hear the other one. Then I'd recommend his two hour book over this one. The shorter one seemed more entertaining to me. And was a number of his seminars compiled. The audience laughter helped it along. As a narrator, he speaks well and isn't boring in tone. This book gets three stars from me, it was okay, but could have been better.
The author narrates well, and shows personality while reading this quick listen. It covers as the title might lead you to believe, lies at the alter. Though not intentional lies, but down the road they turn into lies. She covers various areas that cause problems in a marriage or commitment to another. Leans more towards mending a relationship than how to have a good wedding. Overall, a good listen for either male or female.
It's hard to tell from the sample where this book is going. The narrator is good, and shows personality when he talks. However, most all the talk is just quotes from the bible. This audio book lacks substance, and doesn't tell me anything new or original. I was rather disappointed that I used a credit for it. I give it two stars since the narrator reads well.
This is an excellent listen, and look forward to hearing the unabridged. It comes with eight PDF files you'll want to download that illustrates exercises, and shows recipes. The exercises are ones that can be done at home using barbells, dumbbells, and body weight. With shelves filled with womens fitness books and DVD's. It's nice to finally see a fitness book geared towards men, though this program still can apply to women as well. This is not just a trendy diet, but a long term fitness program. I ended up ordering the book as well for a referencing, as well as the DVD. This audio book gets all five stars from me.
The narration is good, keeps your attention, not the same mono tone that doctors seem to have when talking. It will make you think, if your currently going to therapy, you may find offense to this, and perhaps take it personal. Like a previous reviewer wrote, he does kind of knock the classical idea of mental help. However, he is also a doctor himself, and walks his talk. He does tell his patients as well, they are expected to figure out there own problems, and he is not to be there mental crutch. Because ultimately, it is the patient that has to resolve the problem for good, not the doctor. The doctor is merely support and to help guide.
I listened to this book for days on my daily commute to and from work. Initially, listening to this book, the first 45 minutes appeared somewhat slow to me, or perhaps was hard to put the pieces together. But it quickly drew me in and couldn't wait to hear what the next lesson or words of wisdom were going to be taught. This gets to the core of living, but is put in an entertaining story line. You have a teacher that works in a gas station by career, and an eager student that is a full time gymnast, but has some voids in his life. His journey to wisdom (and mine) is very eye opening. This one gets all six stars from me, the sixth star is you when you purchase this great book ;-)
I listened to this a few times. Like all motivational audio, I pick and choose what advise I consider realistic. To be positive all the time I do not consider realistic, but rather lying to ones self. It did point out a that attitude is always a choice though, which did make me think. He has some funny stories that he ties into his teachings. What loses a star in this audio for me was how it cuts in and out of various seminars. It's not like a standard audiobook, but rather a bunch of different speeches and seminars pasted together in one long audio. And there are even gaps of a few seconds dead air in between. But still worth downloading for the listen, it is entertaining, and may point out a few good things to you.
