    This breakthrough six-week plan assures success by helping you to assess the advantages of weight loss, pick a sensible diet and exercise program, set a goal, line up support, and prepare your environment - all before starting any diet. This unique approach is key to preventing the downfalls that so often lead to failure.

    Where does The Beck Diet Solution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book itself is really good and useful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    A bit tedious to listen to all in one sitting. I really wish they had broken out the chapters naturally instead of the large generic 4 chunk chapters. Since this book is suppose to be listened to over 41+ days, it would help greatly. As a result, I had to listen to the book, breaking out chapters by bookmarks. Not pleasant.

    In 1845 Henry David Thoreau, one of the principal New England Transcendentalists, left the small town of Concord for the country. Beside the lake of Walden he built himself a log cabin and returned to nature, to observe and reflect – while surviving on eight dollars a year. From this experience emerged Walden, one of the great classics of American literature.

    This book will help you stop and reevaluate things. Too caught up in the struggles of modern life? Thoreau's Walden is a must read.

    Here in one volume are both the Essays: First Series and Essays: Second Series from one of the most influential philosophers in American history. Although Ralph Waldo Emerson, perhaps America’s most famous philosopher, did not wish to be referred to as a transcendentalist, he is nevertheless considered the founder of this major movement of nineteenth-century American thought. Emerson was influenced by a liberal religious training; theological study; personal contact with the Romanticists Coleridge, Carlyle, and Wordsworth; and a strong indigenous sense of individualism and self-reliance.

  • Cry, the Beloved Country

    This is the most distinguished novel that has come out of South Africa in the 20th century, and it is one of the most important novels of the modern era. Cry, the Beloved Country is in some ways a sad book; it is an indictment of a social system that drives native races into resentment and crime; it is a story of Fate, as inevitable, as relentless, as anything of Thomas Hardy's. Beautifully wrought with high poetic compassion, Cry, the Beloved Country is more than just a story, it is a profound experience of the human spirit.

    Durant lucidly describes the philosophical systems of such world-famous “monarchs of the mind” as Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Spinoza, Kant, Voltaire, and Nietzsche. Along with their ideas, he offers their flesh-and-blood biographies, placing their thoughts within their own time and place and elucidating their influence on our modern intellectual heritage. This book is packed with wisdom and wit.

    Was looking for exercise motivation. It definitely provided me with that. I really wish the chapters were divided up by the real chapters (so i could skip the pregnancy chapter). Instead, Audible broke it up randomly. Other than that, worth the listen.

  • Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

  • 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism

    If you've wondered how we did not see the economic collapse coming, Ha-Joon Chang knows the answer: We didn't ask what they didn't tell us about capitalism. This is a lighthearted book with a serious purpose: to question the assumptions behind the dogma and sheer hype that the dominant school of neoliberal economists-the apostles of the freemarket-have spun since the Age of Reagan.

    Sean says: "A shallow and destructive book"
