  • The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for Burning Fat, Building Lean Muscle, Ending Emotional Eating, and Maintaining Your Perfect Weight

    The Body Fat Solution is neither super low carb nor super low fat, and the author steers clear of demonizing entire food groups. Instead, Venuto shows you how to personalize an eating plan that takes into account your unique metabolism and calorie needs. He details the stumbling blocks we all face to success, and gives you the tools to overcome them.

    Would you listen to The Body Fat Solution again? Why?

    I probably wouldn't listen to it again, I have the concept and the understanding I needed, and it will serve me for a lifetime. I am in good shape, I'm 52 and have always exercised regularly. I hear family and neighbors spout off about some 'certain' diet, bla bla bla, but have never heard an explanation like this, one that makes sense to me and will always be in vogue. Stop eating so much. That's it. Don't deny yourself anything, just keep it to a good portion. Start doing weight workouts (I do about 5-7/ week now). I never knew how important it was until I read this book. Without trying at all I dropped about ten pounds in two months and feel good all the time. I eat carbs, I eat cookies, I eat hamburgers, I drink beer. But not too much of any of it. It really changed my life.

  • I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High

    Long before he starred on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series such as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and went on to distinguish himself in a variety of film and stage roles, Tony Danza was a walking contradiction: an indifferent student who dreamed of being a teacher. Inspiring a classroom of students was an aspiration he put aside for decades until one day it seemed that the most meaningful thing he could do was give his dream a shot. What followed was a year spent teaching 10th-grade English at Northeast High - Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3,600 students....

    What made the experience of listening to I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had the most enjoyable?

    I never thought too much about Tony Danza, I never really watched him on TV back when he was all over the place, but I now know why he was (and is) a star. What a quality guy, able to get so involved in these young peoples' lives and enrich them in such a great way. Just his one year with these kids probably did so much to change their lives for the better. What a brave thing to do when he really didn't have to. Very touching story, and I don't get teary very often.

    The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

    This is a book about men, for men. It is a story about an ordinary group of men who have an extraordinary experience and how one man comes to terms with a horrible situation and becomes a man, even when he thought he already was one. This is a great story, but it is also so well written and so well told (Will Patton- incredible) that you will be transported to the story and forget where you are. I listen to these books in my car, and I can say that many miles disappeared from me for most of the time I listened. This story, this reader, bring it all home to you. Deliverance is first class entertainment, which constantly challenges you to ask yourself 'what would I do?'

    A very satisfying piece of humor about Americans and America as only an ex-patriot can tell it. It's a collection of bite-sized stories that appeared in print many years ago and are as funny now as they were then. I can't get enough of Bill Bryson because he really has no peers. Priceless, in my opinion.
