  • The FastDiet: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, and Live Longer with the Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Michael Mosley, Mimi Spencer
    • Narrated By Michael Mosley, Mimi Spencer

    Is it possible to eat normally, five days a week, and become slimmer and healthier as a result? Simple answer: yes. You just limit your calorie intake for two nonconsecutive days each week - 500 calories for women, 600 for men. You’ll lose weight quickly and effortlessly with the FastDiet.

    Megarian says: "Worked for me"
    "Understandable content, great narration, Choose this Audio thank me later"
    Would you listen to The FastDiet again? Why?

    Actually, yes. Which is strange because this is a nonfiction diet book. But it was very interesting and enjoyable. I could probably pick up a few facts and tips that I missed the first time around.

    What about Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer ’s performance did you like?

    I was amazed at how good the narrators were considering that they were the Actual authors of this non-fiction book. Especially Mimi Spencer. She could start a new career as a narrator if she Wished. And Michael Mosley read clearly and slowly enough to understand him.

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

    Diet books don't usually make me laugh or cry, getting on the scale does though. (Cry)

    Any additional comments?

    I have read many books on intermittent fasting and this was one of the better ones because it did not go into too much detail with the science of it. It gave you just enough science to understand. Another helpful thing was it gave you a lot of tips on how to approach doing this Fasting protocol. It also had emails and twitters which were real testimonials of people who tried the fast diet and had had success with it. I enjoyed this, it was very pleasant to listen to, I just started the fast today and I highly recommend the audiobook. I wish you good luck on the fast and please wish me good luck. Holly

  • Exit Ramp: A Short Case Study of the Profitability of Panhandling

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By David P. Spears II
    • Narrated By Sean Schroeder
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Have you ever wondered how much that guy with the cardboard sign makes? One economics student did and he decided to find out. During the summer of his senior year at college, while earning a B.A. in Economics and Political Science, David P. Spears spent 80 hours undercover as a panhandler. Systematically recording every transaction at the exit ramp, Spears captured a rarely seen picture of how modern urban charity works.

    What did you love best about Exit Ramp?

    The author wrote this from the an economic and factual viewpoint since he was writing a paper yet he also kept the human touch. His compassion and humanity shone through as he wasn't just writing this as a student but as a human being. I have a different perspective of charity now. It also confirms my belief that America and Americans are the greatest and kindest nation and people in the world.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Exit Ramp?

    That's what was so great about this paper. It wasn't just one moment. It was the aggregate of all the many moments that added up that made this such a great story.

    What about Sean Schroeder’s performance did you like?

    The best thing about the narrator was that I forgot that he was narrating. I felt like the author of the paper was narrating which is the whole point of a good narrator. It's not about him, it's about the content of what he's reading. Good job!

    If you could give Exit Ramp a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Exit ramp: or how I spent my summer vacation pretending to be a bum and having many of my preconceived notions about beggers and givers completely changed what for.

    Any additional comments?

    I was really touched by the courage it took author to do this, in spite of the fact that he admitted he was not a shy person.

    It was interesting to hear about the growth that he made as he experienced the time he spent doing this,
