In this book you will meet normal everyday guys, just like yourself, who for one reason or another, were able to change their lives. For some of them the defining moment was a wake-up call, landing in the Emergency Room having a heart attack, or struggling with chest pains. For others, it was finally deciding that they had enough of being overweight and sore and huffing and puffing up and downstairs and across parking lots.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Waste of time for me. Very disappointing as it was geared toward men. From every study I've read, it is much more difficult for women to lose weight after fifty than for men. When my husband and I follow what's recommended in this book, he loses a bunch of weight, I lose a small amount. If I had known it was geared toward men, I wouldn't have purchased it.

Was Fit After Fifty: How to Lose Weight, Get Fit, and Stay Fit for Life worth the listening time?

No.

Any additional comments?

Please put in the description that all the examples are of men that lose weight and get fit.

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come to Winter Carnival - not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society - where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?

When I discovered Armand Gamache, I was hooked. Something about his wisdom and inner peace along with an acute intelligence just made me want to know him more and more. Having read all the previous books, I feel this one meets all expectations. I was hooked from beginning to end and can't wait for the next one to come out.
The additional clip of an interview with Louise Penny was wonderful too. It was so great to hear her love of the characters and places and the fact that she sees the characters grow just as I do.
