The book itself is good. Lots of information that isn't new, but that is good to be reminded. What was disappointing is that there was no effort to make it anything other than a book that is read to you by someone else. Inappropriate for a book of this type. With a small amount of effort and a producer it could have been an audio book that you use over and over and it becomes motivation for your program. So get the book or get another audio that is billed as an enhancement to your workout program because this isn't it.
Outstanding book, but then it was an outstanding real life story. All the 4-5 star reviewers get it right. But for an audiobook and a listener that is not a professor of history it is way too long. The reader is great, but his style doesn't lend itself to droning on and on about previously unknown, but a wide cast of characters, especially if they are only minor in the whole scheme of the story or not known by previous media events in our lifetime.
My recommendation is to get the abridged version. But don't miss it altogether because it is a great story, with a whole lot of relevance to our current events.
For a first pass this can be initially inspiring, but when you are quitting smoking you need more. A lot more. I understand the need for repetition, but there are many facets to stopping such a horrific addiction and I didn't feel this covered mind, body and soul and affirmations that can carry you through the long haul. Mr. Harrold's technique is flawless, which warranted the rating of 2, but lacked significantly in substance with respect to kicking an addiction and all that it entails.
