You do not listen to this for the story or the narration...you want to hear the facts. The facts are fairly solid, but the narration? There were so many odd pauses I had to wonder: was he getting tired of his own book? Did he lose his place? Was he choking on a bean? I am sure the publisher did their best to get him to use a professional reader, but they should have tried harder. I've only heard one health book where the author did a great job of reading...Drop Dead Healthy... Fuhrman may be a great doc, but his reading does not do him any favors. If he ever writes another book, I hope he will use a professional reader (I certainly won't buy another book he narrates). Reviews are just the reviewer's opinion, and obviously, few agreed with me.
I love the information Joel Fuhrman provides and I love that I can listen to it while doing other things like cleaning my house or working out.
No real comparisons at this time
I'm still listening to it :)
No-- it's more informational
Get a better narrator.
Most likely not if he is reading it.
He miss pronounces words frequently.
I think this book has great information it's to bad he thought he had to read his own work.
yes. The information contained in this audio was very helpful in encouraging good eating habits.
I believe what this book preaches, except it suffers from the fact that there is actually not a ton of things to say, but has been inflated to be long enough to warrant being a book. It is easier to take in paperback, because you can skip the repetitive parts, but with audio books, you cannot.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
No nothing I would change, it was very educational and informative.
I would have included more tips on the right foods to eat
I liked that the narrator was well spoken and easy to understand. I didn't like the way the narrated skipped and repeated himself. Seems like they could have done those lines over in the editing room.
yes I probably would. visuals may help readers take it all in.
This was a very good book. I hope my will power is strong enough to stick with some of the tips and advice presented in this book.
Logical, clearly explained, researched, practical.
Chapter 8 - exactly what to eat!
Joel Fuhrman's no nonsense advice style.
How few calories are in nutrient dense food thus you can eat as as you'd like and are actually eating less calories than a small amount of junk food.
Most of the nutritional information in this book is actually what I am learning about in my pre-med classes. I definitely think you can't go wrong by eating more fresh fruits and veggies, though the specific meal plan discussed in this book might not have enough calories or fat that someone as active as I would need. The author gives information about how to adapt this way of eating too fit better into your lifestyle. Of the nutritional /diet books I have read, this really seems to be the healthiest way to lose weight and take control of your health.
Before I listened to this book I was skeptical
Book was recommended to me
Joel Fuhrman has a way with words that work
His diet includes fiber, nuts, vegetables, fruit, seeds, plant-based food overall
He does not discriminate : no matter your preferences with food or unhealthy lifestyle this book can do at least one good thing for you
