    "Good information but a little outdated"

    I wanted to start this diet again and had to make a 3 hour total drive so I thought I would get a head start on my reading. This helped but is a bit outdated. There is a new book called "The New Atkins For A New You" that is much better however Audible doesn't carry it. This one tells you not to drink coffee however the new one has used newer research and tell you it's not only ok but can help. However, for the basics and how to get started and even later how to move onto the later stages, it is a very good book.

    "A decent primer, if one is needed."
    What did you like best about The Atkins Essentials? What did you like least?

    I wasn't strict enough with my attempt. I needed it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Atkins Health and Medical Information Services ? Why or why not?

    This is kinda salesy for their other products.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Nothing to say here, not much of a performance


    Do you think The Atkins Essentials needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it was written after its follow-up.

    Story
    "Quit yelling at me."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Mindless drones.


    Would you recommend The Atkins Essentials to your friends? Why or why not?

    I don't know that any of my friends need to be told what to do in this manner.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By being an over the top authoritarian.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Atkins Essentials?

    It was already the condensed version.


    Any additional comments?

    When wanting to get advice or gain knowledge of a topic I want a friendly knowledgeable voice. It seems that audible's editors don't realize the personal experience listening with earbuds is. Too many of the self help tiles, like this one, are done in the style of an authoritarian orator in a stadium full of true believers that want to be told what is what. That would work for me would be like a friend or calmly confident expert telling me what they know.
