Too much old information that new studies have proven false. The author needs to read "Wheat Belly Total Health" instead of telling us there is no way to loose visceral fat since he keeps saying he can't loose his.
This was good, sensible, easy information for all stages of life and you don't need a college degree to understand it and benefit from it, as well as sharing great information to others!
This is a basic primer course on heathy living--it's quite extensive but never digs too deeply into a single subject. And the course continuously reinforces some very basic concepts for healthy living. Because of this, most health professionals are probably familiar with much of this lecture already. I am, however, not a health professional so I walked away with a ton of useful stuff from this course!
Not all the subjects interested me but the narration was well done and kept me engaged. The author brings a sense of discovery and curiosity, which makes even the chapters that might not apply to me (I'm a younger male), engaging.
I was searching for a health resource that wasn't specialized, and one that I could apply to my life right away. And this was an excellent choice! It's not a get-fit-quick book; it's a treasure trove of wisdom in ways we can make one degree changes in our lives that will allow us to get more from each day. "It's not the destination--it's the journey", Goodman writes; this audio book certainly is helping out on my own. Recommended.
This book was a great dissapointment. I guess I was expecting too much from someone who is not practicing in the field of his topic. The author, although a renowned sugeon and having read widely on health and longevity has clearly not been studying in depth nor practicing in this field. I don't mind if an introductory lecture is so full of bland and overly simplified generalizations but a"classic series " should be more accurate and less tainted by personal bias.
This course was full of very informative and interesting lectures. It was easy to understand and follow. The narrator had an easy to listen to, easy to understand voice. I learned a lot and looked forward to listening to it each time. I was almost sorry it was over.
I did not finish the book. I returned it.
I have no doubt that he is an expert in the field, but I did not enjoy the presentation.
I am sure my life is now a little better after reading this book. Loved it!
