    Story
    "Ok Read, Abridged"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I also bought the e-book for this title, and the audiobook helped me speed through the first part--the explanation of the rules.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Skinny Rules?

    nothing was exceptionally memorable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Bob Harper?

    I suppose. Bob is great on TV being himself, but when he reads an audiobook, it sounds like he's READING. Very stiff.


    Could you see The Skinny Rules being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook is best used IN CONJUNCTION WITH the book itself. It doesn't include any of the menus or recipes, which is essentially the follow-through of the rules. I found it helpful to listen to the audiobook to get through the Rules quickly to move on to the How To part.

    "Great info but Way too abridged"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I'd recommend for the content, but I'm disappointed that so many of the tips and other info in the print book was not included. There was no .pdf with any recipes. Now I need to buy the print book, too.


    Did Bob Harper do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    n/a


    Did The Skinny Rules inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, I'll be following several of these rules

    no

    "Way too short !!!"
    What would have made The Skinny Rules better?

    The book should NOT have been abridged! It should have a PDF. I don't even know what all the are because I listen to the book while driving therefore I can't write them down as he says them! NOW WHAT! I have to buy it twice!!! That's robbery!

    "It is very interesting and sounds achieveable."
    What did you love best about The Skinny Rules?

    It was very easy to listen to and to understand.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was very disappointed that there was no PDF file attached for downloading, the meal and the tools.. For the money it should have been attached.


    What does Bob Harper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His spoke and I believe in him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    About forgiving his father.


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed that there was no PDF file attached for downloading the meal and the tools.. For the money it should have been attached. I end up buying the book to get the meals and tools.

    "Where is the supplemental material for this book?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I love Bob Harper. I love Jillian more but I love Bob. His reading was very stiff and there were places where he actually just read a list. A list!? Seriously? There were also references to material "at the end of the book" and there was no PDF or supplemental materials like there were with other nonfiction audible books.

    I listened to this while I was running and it was motivational (because it's Bob Freaking Harper) but I would actually recommend this as a print book. You'll need to go back and read some of these lists that he's droning on from.
