    "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.

    "Best workout plan I've read"

    Clear and easy to understand. A great place to start for beginners and a great plan for seasoned veterans to switch to. The concepts resonated with me and after having been through several workout plans over 5 years, this will be what I'll settle on. There are only one or two niggly things where the broad advice requires some personalisation (daily caloric intake, supplement regime, etc). Once you're into this line of thinking there are lots of other support functions available on his website as well which I plan to check out.

    "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.

    "Bigger, Leaner, Stronger-Broken down Barney style!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bigger Leaner Stronger the most enjoyable?

    If you want a no BS fitness book, this is the one you have been looking for. Mike Matthews breaks everything down into simple form, and makes everything easy to understand. Whether you are a novice or an expert, I think you will take something from this book.

    You need to check out this book If you value your time as much as I do, and don't want to waste countless hours over-training for little gain.

    Any additional comments?

    Not only is this book very simple to follow, but it's incredibly honest. The fitness industry is filled with people/companies trying to shove unnecessary products/services down our throats, and this book doesn't do ANY of that.

    Moreover, Mike even goes above and beyond to point out things that we might have THOUGHT were legitimate, and are complete fallacies. If you're looking for a great fitness book, look no further.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

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