    Muscle Myths was written to debunk the most commonplace and harmful gimmicks, fads, myths, and misinformation in the health and fitness industry. With the information in this book, you can save the money, time, and frustration of buying into misleading diet plans and products that promise unattainable results. You can become your own personal trainer and start getting real results with your diet and exercise.

    Very enjoyable listen. This book isn't necessary if you have his main books (Bigger, Leaner, Stronger), but it did contain some useful info that made it worthwhile for me (e.g. drinking alcohol on a diet plan).

    If you want to be muscular, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without steroids, good genetics, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements…then you want to listen to this audiobook. Here's the deal: Getting into awesome shape isn't nearly as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe. In this audiobook you're going to learn something most guys will never know: The exact formula of exercise and eating that makes putting on 10 to 15 pounds of quality lean mass.

    Clear and easy to understand. A great place to start for beginners and a great plan for seasoned veterans to switch to. The concepts resonated with me and after having been through several workout plans over 5 years, this will be what I'll settle on. There are only one or two niggly things where the broad advice requires some personalisation (daily caloric intake, supplement regime, etc). Once you're into this line of thinking there are lots of other support functions available on his website as well which I plan to check out.

    I couldn't get halfway through this before deciding it was all theoretical and useless. Has no application in reality. All vague and poetic musings over "how to think".

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Really great, recommend to all. I was turned off by how conservative Dr Covey is... didn't appreciate invocations of God...thought it was prudish to insist we "not think pornographic thoughts". Still, a great listen.

    Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - such as the brain's need for physical activity to work at its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

    Absolutely brilliant. Couldn't stop listening. Medina deserves to be a highly praised pop culture scientist in the same vein as Neil Degrasse Tyson and Bill Nye.

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    I found this book drew out on overly specific systems for the first 3/5's of the book. Wasn't concise, and not overly useful. However, it was well read, and the author is clearly an intelligent man.
