    "Disappointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This should have never been made into an audio book. I've not seen it in print, but it reads like page after page of charts and tables. Format aside, there's nothing new here, wish I had my credit back.


    Has Bigger Leaner Stronger turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The book did not turn me off to fitness books, but I'll think twice before I get another one.

    "Clears the clutter with precise steps for anyone."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bigger Leaner Stronger to be better than the print version?

    I am considering buying the print for reference, but loved the audio for first time and repeat listens while commuting.


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

    I don't have a comparison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the breakdown on nutrition, and the calorie needs to gain muscle, or lose fat.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really just liked the detailed step by step plans, from food, to lifting and cardio. It was enough info to explain what was needed, but not so long to bore you. No fluff.


    Any additional comments?

    I've really enjoyed listening to the podcast and reading his regular blogposts also. I teach social media, blogging and email marketing to the medical industry, and Mike's work ethic really stands out. He responds, and engages well with people who comment on FB, and his blog. His level of commitment to his industry is apparent.

    "Serious about working out? Read this book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book lays out the fundamentals of building your body correctly. There is so much crap out there and Michael Matthews is straight forward and to the point and cuts through all the "Bro Science" out there. Matthews also debunks crazy diets, such as low carb. He backs his method with facts from studies and his experiences. This is not a diet book, it is about working hard and eating right and seeing results. I have listen to it twice, it is an easy listen and not too long.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is simple to understand his plan and follow it.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Justus’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Justus is easy to listen to, he is clear and funny at times when it calls for it.


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

    Bigger, Leaner, Stronger: The truth about building the body you want


    Any additional comments?

    Michael Matthews also is very active on twitter, his website and email. He offers support and information to clarify questions about the book. He freely offers great information through Twitter and his blog posts.

    This was a breath of fresh air to read. Mike clarifies a lot information for us especially with regards to the supplement industry and food nutrition both of which can be daunting when starting out. I would highly recommend this book, if you were to have only one book on fitness this is the one. Cheers,

    Paul Ireland,

    Story
    "An amazing book that gets right to the point."

    Over the last 10 years, I've read many books on exercise and nutrition and this is by far my favorite. It cuts through all the hype and just gives you the facts on how to get in fantastic shape. It is easy to listen to and understand as an audio book. The content is supported by the latest science and cuts through all the fad ideas that are floating around out there. It provides a perfect exercise and dieting framework to get you in fantastic shape. There are no gimmicks or false promises in this book; it sticks to what has truly worked for all the people that are in awesome shape without the use of steroids.

    It takes a lot of hard work to get in great shape and there is just no way around that, but the road is MUCH easier if you are being as effective as possible with your workouts, diet, and supplementation. You can't go wrong with this book if you follow it to the letter.

    "Change Your Life During Your Commute!"
    If you could sum up Bigger Leaner Stronger in three words, what would they be?

    The Life Changer


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

    The most memorable moments I remember from "BLS" is the proper way to do my workouts without wasting a lot of time. Everyone is busy these days and there is little time to waste. This book taught me how to optimize my time in the gym.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Justus’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, "Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making: Build Healthy Muscle"... Bigger, Leaner, Stronger is a very similar style of reading from Jeff Justus. They are both very easy to listen to.


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

    Bigger Leaner Stronger- It's the title that sums up everything you can be.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved listening to this book and I plan on listening to it again. I do recommend purchasing the paper book as well to get the workout plans written down, but you can also write down the workouts as it is read to you. I'd buy this again and have recommended this to numerous friends and family members.

    "great reading and amazing information"
    What did you love best about Bigger Leaner Stronger?

    The information provided in the book is based on real scientific findings. I have already started following the suggestions explained in the books, and believe or not, I am already getting nice results after only 3 weeks!


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

    So far, I didn't really found any book like it. This book has everything you need to know about nutrition and training, explained in a very simple way.


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

    I liked the way in which the reader talks. For example, the enphasis used when he reads makes everything even more convincing!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not at all! I looked forward for the next page! In every page there is useful information you can use for your goals.

    "Great book for beginners"
    Would you listen to Bigger Leaner Stronger again? Why?

    I've already listened to it twice. there is a lot of info packed into this short book.


    Any additional comments?

    Michael Matthews does a great job cutting through all the workout BS and getting down to the basics of lifting. As a beginner I found it a perfect resource. It could easily be titled, "Lifting 101." After reading this book you will have the knowledge you need to confidently pursue your fitness goals. I also have to mention that I emailed the author a question and he got back to me the same day. How many fitness experts will do that?
