    Story

    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.

    Story
    Where does The Body Fat Solution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top 5. Appreciated that he took the time to read the Intro. The reader for the bulk of the book did well...nice tone and intonation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Body Fat Solution?

    Tom's no nonsense but encouraging introduction.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is non-fiction. I especially like Tom's goal setting process.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Realistic fitness lifestyle changes for anyone, any age any shape.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom backs up his publications with a fitness community website that has helped hundreds/thousands of people get in better shape. He personally takes the time to answer questions and gets involved with members on the online forums. He likes to give kudos to those who succeed. (There are fitness contests throughout the year). I hope he writes a book geared more for those who have to lose 100 lbs or more. He has some sound goal setting strategies, but it would help even more if there was a strategy set out especially for the most struggling crowd.

    Story
    Would you listen to Eye of the Needle again? Why?

    I have 3 times now. I enjoy the story. I liked the way the story built in intensity for the female heroine.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eye of the Needle?

    The courage of Lucy at the end and how her life changed going forward.


    What does Eric Lincoln bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like to 'hear' the characters say their own words, not just read them.


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

    When you get toward the end you don't want to stop. Thank goodness for portable players.


    Any additional comments?

    The only voice I didn't really like was the little boy's. Felt that one could have been done better, but this is somewhat of a minor point.
