    In The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman reveals that the secret solution to losing weight and preventing not just diabetes but also heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer is balanced insulin levels. Dr. Hyman describes the seven keys to achieving wellness: nutrition, hormones, inflammation, digestion, detoxification, energy metabolism, and a calm mind - and explains his revolutionary six-week healthy-living program.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Blood Sugar Solution in three words, what would they be?

    Addicts first rule is to know oneself as an addict. This books let us come to grips with SUGAR and all of its addictive natures. Now it is time to understand why this substance can be and should be label with a warning label as strong as nicotine. It hooks you just like nicotine but nobody seems to mind. Why, because they are probably hooked as well. Finding out the facts is your responsibility and dealing resourcefully with the facts is Dr Hyman's mission.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Just a little to repetitions in some areas.

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "Gripping love through a tragedy, faith manifested!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Racing in the Rain to be better than the print version?

    For dog lovers this book speaks to us in a special language only we know well. The special look, for instance that my dog, Murphy, can give me, melts my heart. He KNOWS! The truth of our lives are summed up on this, "The problem is not the problem, the problem is how we react to the problem and resourcefully solve that problem first, then the first problem can be solved. If we could all have the eyes of our dog, just like the poor of sight people have with their special friends, and see our problems like they do, they could help us navigate our lives so much better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well told with the twist and turns of a race day in Indianapolis. You don't have to be a race car driver nor want to race in the rain to understand the beauty of a exhilarate race to finish even in the rain.
