to be be fair there are some good bits and some important issues are raised but this book for me was very slow paced and dull.
This guy is a world authority.I fully respect him and his devotion to proven facts.However there was very little information I could use on a daily practical level that wasn't obvious.
The advice contained is pretty obvious:understand portion size;reduce size of your plate and glass,eat slowly,order your dessert after you have eaten,eat the junk stuff if you have worked out that day.Understand calories and how easy it is to get the wrong.
This could easily be summarised in to a 1 hour book that would make interesting.It was tedious to get through;I can not recommend this to anyone except someone who is a food psychologist who is marketing food products.
need an abridged version.some chapters not all suited to listening to e.g..number crunching formulas being read out.Overall he has a great voice and I did learn alot as well as enjoying the book.
Despite my poor scoring I would definitely recommend this book to an 18 year old or someone who only does packaged holidays.There are a few moments of profoundly good advice and perspectives which could have been summarised in 10 minutes.Severely lacking in information that I could use.Not sure if I will pay attention to books recommended by Tim Ferriss.
I would love to hear about Rolf's own adventures.
Better chapters packed with information that i can use.
disappointment of my time wasted.
not everything Tim Ferriss recommends is of value.
a great guide to reminding oneself to rediscover the gentility that underlies our real self that judges not and accepts...
heart rendering,engaging,thought provoking and exceptionally visual....Khaled takes you to another world where you witness tragedy,betrayal,loyalty and hope as if it were infront of you.for a few hours you will have another life in a far away world made seemlingly of more than just your imagination.Hard to believe it is just a fictional entity and his first novel...utterly captivating....i guarantee if you are made of flesh and bones you will shed tears...Be warned...your heart strings will be pulled.
i have studied eastern philosophy and have been meditating for over 15 years...very few books get to the essence of meditation and philosophy..it is so simple...yet impossible for our minds to grasp.being in the now is all there is and will ever be but it is not a concept..it is a state of being that is unreliant on understanding.his words are beautiful but far more blissful is the stillness he encourages you to seek inside you where it has always been and always will be and this bliss is there right now for you to seize
What a sublime masterpiece this is.Unfathomably deep and yet simple.
I would recommend this to anyone who seeks to be inspired and reminded that there is more to life than external beingness.This book made me laugh and it made me cry.It is a testimony to the spirit that lies within each one of us--there to be discovered and set free.Buy this...Enjoy it...and share the wisdom that will unfold.In a nutshell...this is a Classic!!that has the potential to change your life---money well invested--in you!!
