I will admit up front I prefer non-fiction to fiction. I just think the real world is more interesting. But, I had a 1000+ mile car trip (alone!) and so I thought this book would be a good way to pass the time. I had listened to the first book. I had my concerns about the author after the first book-- so obsessed with S & M, but in this book- he seems to delight in it. I also find him to be a bit misogynistic. That said-- the story was a total bore! What was said in 16 hours, could have been presented more tightly in about 6. I don't know if I will take a chance on the third in the trilogy. I just don't get it. Why do people like these books???
I read the book, but I wanted the audio version to listen to in the car and on the go. This is information all Americans need. We are eating a diet which will kill us in the end. What we thought as the normal American diet is going to be our undoing!! We didnt' know... but now we do. All the research is interestingly provided to us and one cannot listen to this without realizing a change has to be made. I have lost 30 lbs so far, and expect to reach the proper weight for my height paying attention to the research presented in this book: a low carb diet is the healthy way to go--- carbs are for special occasions, and great care should be taken to eat the right ones in the right amount. It's been fairly easy and I am so grateful I found this book when I did. I have heard the information before, but I never knew WHY we needed to eat low carb. I guess I am one who has be convinced, and convinced I am!
