    Everyone knows how to lose weight: eat less, move more. But so many dieters who know what to do still don't do what they know. Why not? Because they don't understand the brain-body dynamics of weight loss. Now, cutting-edge research has revealed that millions of dieters following typical weight loss programs are actually programming themselves to get fatter.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was a reflection on the poignantly sad aspects of human existence at the time. I prefer a story that has a more positive slant as we are living through very troubled times in our country now.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    All story lines were completed. No particular surprises.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No particular scene comes to mind, but the various descriptions of how the tapestries were made were fascinating to me, a former needlepointer. The description of how the blind character picked herbs and managed her garder was also very interesting.


    Was The Lady and the Unicorn worth the listening time?

    Although I listened to the entire story it was not truly worth my listening time. The story was simply not my cup of tea.


    Any additional comments?

    In spite of my lack of enthusiasm for this well publicized book I have to acknowledge that the story was very well written by the author. Others may be perfectly happy with this story.
