This book is very informative. Has information that is easy to take in. This is a great place to start if you aim to improve your health.
The whole book is kinda WOW
Different narrator, faster pace, less preachy, more research.
The repition and pace.
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.
waste of time
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.
Very comprehensive and practical.
Easy to listen to, it's a long lecture, but never got old.
"Eat mostly plants, and not too much" is a great quote he used in the lecture.
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!
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.
Dr. Goodman has inspired me to enter medical school.
He was awesome. I hope to meet him one day!
