The reader has very little personality and it seems to repeat the same information over and over. It's like listening to a textbook.
It has good nutritional information if you can weed it out of all of the scientific terminology. He is smart but does not know how to make his findings interesting.
He was not monotone but there was little excitement, reminded me of a professor who didn't really want to be there.
I would take away the whole beginning of the book, we don't need all the scientific background info, I just need to know what foods are nutrient dense!
This book is a great listen for someone who isn't quite sure what is healthy to eat and what is not. This book makes a sound case for low calorie, low-fat and low-carb based diet. The author clearly states there will be repetition of some content explaining that the goal is for the reader (listener) to understand and internalize the concepts of a healthy diet. This way your not just trying a fad diet, but rather making a lifestyle change.
The testimonials and the full disclosure on the toughness of adapting to this diet. Not everyone will easily adjust to this diet due to learned eating habits, aversion to vegetables, and some digestive acclamation to the vegetable content.
The reader is the author. This brings a sincerity and confidence to the material. Also, it's much easier to have this book read and in effect explained to you rather than read the text.
This is a hard diet to fully acclimate to. Don't try this diet if you aren't willing to change your lifestyle. Try Adkins if you just want to lose weight quickly. This book is more about changing your health, and not just your weight.
I feel I have a lot to live for and now I know how to live longer and with better quality of life. thanks Dr. Furman.

The best book I have ever read on the subject. Lots of scientific research to back up this diet. time will tell if it works for me 😊
As an audiobook, this was a difficult listen because the book references diagrams and charts. This would be useful if you also have the book to use to refer the diagrams.
No. There is a distracting audio hiss that occurs when he pronounces the "s" sound.
Pleasant except for the "s" sound.
