    Story
    "If you like repetition"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrator, faster pace, less preachy, more research.


    What was most disappointing about The Great Courses’s story?

    The repition and pace.


    What didn’t you like about Dr. Anthony A. Goodman’s performance?

    The lecturer obviously thinks very highly of himself and his opnions so he takes every opportunity to tell you. He repeats the same thing over and over and over, even at 3x speed I was still getting bored.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    waste of time

    Story
    "Wish I would have heard this 25 years ago"
    What did you love best about Lifelong Health: Achieving Optimum Well-Being at Any Age?

    Health, Diet, and Exercise advice is out there in abundance. Knowing what is believable or not is always tough. Dr. Goodman's lecture was clear, to the point, and makes perfect sense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very comprehensive and practical.


    What about Dr. Anthony A. Goodman’s performance did you like?

    Easy to listen to, it's a long lecture, but never got old.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    "Eat mostly plants, and not too much" is a great quote he used in the lecture.


    Any additional comments?

    If you step back from this subject in general, it's all about common sense and moderation. Eat wholesome, exercise more, get plenty of rest. But the how's and why's are clearly presented with common sense approach to achieving all of this. Everything from prostate exam options to menopause and children's health or allergies. Loved it!

    Story
    "No bibliography but found it through Google search"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a good course. Dr. Goodman presents sometimes complex information in an easy to understand way. I also like his general philosophy to good heath. My own research has led me to disagree with him on two points, however. I think he's wrong about local food being better and I don't think organic food is worth the cost in most cases.

    It would have been nice to have a link to the bibliography and written material included in the description but I was able find it by Googling the name of the course.
