    In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control. To help us lose weight and recover our health, Robert Lustig presents personal strategies to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress; and societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation.

    Would you listen to Fat Chance again? Why?

    This book offered me scientific proof of the recommendations without being over technical. I would listen again to get even more clarification of the concepts, and a better understanding, and to remind myself of the things I want to try. I bookmarked sections to refer back to later.


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

    I don't know that it could have been more enjoyable. There was enough science to make it believable, and enough normal talk to make it "readable".


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It would have been too much information for me to digest in all one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to understand more about the body's ability to deal with food. It is interesting to learn about, and more scientific than I would typically want to read but worth every minute.

    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    If you could sum up Seriously...I'm Kidding in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, light-hearted


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ellen DeGeneres? Why or why not?

    I think Ellen is very funny, and I thought her book was amusing. I don't know whether or not I'd "read" another, but it was good for the day I read it, with a 4-hour drive to and from Pennsylvania.


    Any additional comments?

    I think it's easy to understand why not everyone would like this book. It doesn't necessarily have meaning, or a plot, or many of the things books usually require. But I found it a quick, fun listen, something more exciting on my drive than just watching the trees go by listening to the same music I always hear.

    Story

    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this, depending on who the friend was. While I think the message is important for many people, I think that only certain people are really open to hearing it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Sheryl was open and honest about her own shortcomings, which "gives permission" to other people to own up to their own difficulties. It is always easiest to admit there is a problem when other people have already admitted the same.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the message that Sheryl Sandberg is looking to get across is an important one. I think she has the opportunity to make some incredible headway helping women make changes to help themselves. Her honesty and openness are welcome in an arena that often shies away from being too honest.
