    "Everything you need to know."

    This is an outstanding book. I'm an experienced lifter and I thought I really understood how to create the body I wanted. However, this book really taught me a lot that I didn't know. It caused me to change my entire program and I've had amazing success. I think that this book will save anyone years of fruitless struggle and help you get the body you want. This book offers all the info your ever going to need to reach your goals. This book is amazing and I think people should really pick it up and follow the program to see for yourself.

    "My Muscle Bible"

    This was my first book of Mike's that I bought, and it's truly paid for itself multiple times over and over. I'll get to that in a moment.
    If you're looking for a no-nonsense, motivating, inspiring book to help you quickly achieve your fitness goals, you've found it. I purchased the Audible version because I like to listen to books as I'm driving and/or mowing the lawn. I like to keep fit and healthy, and I'm always looking to pack on more muscle. One day before mowing the lawn, I searched for a new book to listen to while I was working outside. I'm glad I stumbled across this one.
    As far as this book actually saving me money, his chapter on supplements is worth the cover price alone. If you're like me, you fell victim to supplement scams for years. Trying every hot new product, even though most of it wasn't backed up by any true science at all. Worst, these "new" prodcuts cost a fortune. Mike cuts through all the b.s. and lays it out straight. What works, what doesn't. What you need, what to skip. So I'm done wasting money on unproven products. Thanks so much Mike. This truly is my "Muscle Bible."

    Story
    "Learn your body with science and no gimmeks"
    Would you listen to Bigger Leaner Stronger again? Why?

    It contains a lot of valuable information for weightlifters. More importantly it flat-out tells you the truth about all the "professional" body builders out there and all the supplements they front for.


    What other book might you compare Bigger Leaner Stronger to and why?

    "Why we get fat" is another great book that explains the real science behind weight and muscle gain.


    What about Jeff Justus’s performance did you like?

    He sympathizes with you throughout the book - "its not your fault, corp A has manipulated you to believe this".


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

    No, because there was plenty you could put into action immediately.


    Any additional comments?

    Been lifting for 20 years and this book taught me lessons you wont learn in the gym, or from personal trainers.

    "Great Book! A Must Have For Anyone Just Starting"
    Where does Bigger Leaner Stronger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's was a good read for me and really set some things straight from all the conflicting information I've read in forums.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe it would be more beneficial as a paper copy but it's very convenient to listen while you do other things.

    "Well written, full of detail, excellent!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, there's a lot of misinformation in the fitness community. This book breaks down the right approach in a scientific, yet easily readable, format. The author doesn't BS around, it's very straightforward and isn't sugar-coated...brass-tacks. Also, it's hard not to like Mike, he's charismatic and conversational.

    "Nothing but good things!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bigger Leaner Stronger to be better than the print version?

    I bought both -- I like to have print version as a quick visual reference guide.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big fan of Mike Matthews and have new found motivation to start getting Bigger, Leaner, Stronger :) This book inspired me to get his other books as well. I also purchased the print version (of BLS) to have as a visual reference guide. Just also want to commend Mike for his excellent customer service. I have been CrossFitting for a few years now on and off. Although Mike isn't a fan of CrossFit -- he was very helpful and flexible to help me create a program that included both the BLS program and CrossFit. I really appreciate his genuine desire to help his readers/listeners succeed in their own personal BLS journey! Mahalo Mike!

    "Excellent book very informative and life changing!"
    What did you love best about Bigger Leaner Stronger?

    I loved how Mike gets down to the nitty gritty details of each topic, He leaves no space to be confused if a question arises he automatically goes into explaining the fundamentals.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bigger Leaner Stronger?

    At the end when it came to a full workout plans for the first two months and the 1 year bonus report i jumped out of my seat. With the info he gives you on diet and training he completes it with an actual workout plan, from which workout to how many reps its fantastic.

    Story
    "Too much information to reference for an audiobook"
    Would you try another book written by Michael Matthews or narrated by Jeff Justus?

    Not sure I would.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Matthews’s story?

    There is too much complex information to effectively reference in an audio book. This is not a comment or judgement on the content just that you need a kindle or paper version to get the most out of the content.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Justus’s performances?

    not sure.


    What character would you cut from Bigger Leaner Stronger?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    try something else or get it in text format.

    "Basically, a good motivational book. But..."

    Inconsistent in places. And very macho, but hey, that's the genre. I'm glad I heard it but didn't like the style.
