Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.

I follow Dr. Leaf and am a fan of hers. However, the first part of this book is padded with a lot of scary condemnations of the food industry, a rehash of Fast Food Nation for the first 9 chapters, inducing fear and a negative mindset from the beginning of the book, when this is the antithesis of the professed goals of Dr. Leaf. Perhaps Dr. Leaf had a contract for so many pages. Start at Chapter 10 and read on from there for the gist of the book. Also, the narrator, hired to read a Christian title, mispronounces the names of the Biblical epistles to the Thessalonians multiple times. Familiarity with the basics of Christianity such as a knowledge of how to pronounce the books of the Bible should be requisite for any narrator endeavoring to read a Christian title. However, if you can get past these shortfalls, it might be useful. I look forward to a revised version without the first 9 chapters (or the 9 shortened to 1) and a narrator conversant with the rudiments of the Bible.

This ground-breaking book is for the one who is not satisfied with the standard theological positions regarding life and death, health and sickness and sin; one who is eager for a fuller, more practical concept of God as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus. Astoundingly original, it challenges the popular notions of church, religion, and medicine, and clarifies Christianity not as a system of beliefs, but as a demonstrable science.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

While the author, Mary Baker Glover/Eddy recommends using her latest edition, it is wonderful to have this edition to show how her thought developed. Excellently and compassionately read by Andrew Kidd

Where does The Secrets of Success rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Hard to answer because the content is amazing and important but the performance (reader) is abysmal
