    "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.

    "Complete Crap"

    The only thing more dangerous then someone who thinks they understand fitness is someone who thinks they can write.

    This author is a fraud.

    You may be swayed by his cavalier attitude and disrespect towards others in the fitness industry, but make no mistake this man is a fraud.

    The book starts with the author telling you he has no education or prior training but does have "experience" This is bro science with a lab coat on.

    Most of research he uses to support his claims is published by "pay to print" sources and university.

    I did listen all the way through to find anything redeemable about the book or author but could not.

    Spoiler alert: He tries to sell you on his line of supplements, apps, other books, webpage, etc. at the end.

    "well researched and well written."

    This is the best fitness and nutrition book I have read in quite a while. Not only is it extremely informative and based in science fact it also offers an actionable plan to move forward eliminating every possible excuse for not doing what we know we should do!

    "Back to Basics: Lift Heavy, Eat Well..it will come"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found this book when looking up how to build muscle while burning fat at the same time. Believe it or not there is very limited information let alone technique written about it as the mantra is that it is impossible to do. Mike Matthews lays it all out in laymen's terms what needs to be done by bringing it back to basics. This book, along with Arnold's "Total Recall," was the push I needed to get myself back in the weight room after almost 15 years. I'm 37 now and was tired of watching all of my peers complete marathons, Tough Mudders and the like while I slaved away at my job and atrophied to old man levels,watching my BFP rise and rise and feeling older by the day. While I've only been on the program for 3 months I've dropped 3% body fat and lost about 7 pounds, nothing drastic but a good start. I am still finding the right balance of macros (I'm hypothyroid) to see what works best for me. But my strength literally exploded almost immediately and I am now back to lifting what I was way back when, even more-so with legs. Muscle memory is REAL! One point that MM does not really go into is the sheer sense of accomplishment you feel when you are able to add on weight week after week. Granted, this will taper off but if there's anything that will keep you pumped that is it. I've been using the app Strong to track my lifts which has been a huge help and am just now getting into carb cycling to see if that may help with my carb intolerance. Great book with common sense ideas. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
