    America's Angriest Trainer, Vinnie Tortorich, exposes the nasty underbelly of the fitness industry while getting you into the best shape of your life. For over 20 years, Vinnie has been Hollywood's go-to guy for celebrities and athletes looking to get fit fast. Now, in this hilarious and often R-rated memoir, he holds nothing back. What's the best piece of fitness equipment money can buy? What's the fastest way to lose weight: diet or exercise? Why are health clubs worse than used car lots? In Fitness Confidential, Vinnie tells all.

    What made the experience of listening to Fitness Confidential the most enjoyable?

    Unlike 99% of the audio books out there, Vinnie (the author himself) actually reads the book and sometimes goes off the script and inserts rants and thoughts. I have already read the book, which was awesome for its content, but the audio book brings my reading to a whole new level. I also enjoyed the last section with Dean Lorey, co-writer on what went into writing the book.


    What other book might you compare Fitness Confidential to and why?

    I would compare it to a mix between Finding Ultra by Rich Roll and Kitchen Confidential, but much better


    What about Vinnie Tortorich’s performance did you like?

    I love his true southern Louisiana accent in addition to his occasional off text rants.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me feel every emotion from inspired to laughter to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    A must buy!

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"
    "Where is Book 2"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the book but it was not as "deep" intellectually or stimulating as some of Follet's other works like Eye of the Needle, Pillars of the Earth, or On the Wings of Eagles. A little bit too much sex and not enough history for my liking. However, I did enjoy the narrator and the plot overall and am looking forward to finishing it when Book 2 comes out.
