Thank you! I've fasted 24-48 hours in the past, painfully! I needed to do a 7 day fast for health reasons and so, got your book in hopes it would help me through. Did it ever! Today I finished my 7 day water only (and a little green tea) fast and I know I was successful because of your information. I didn't quit on day 2 knowing day 3 and beyond would be easier. Without your information either I would have quit or been miserable for the entire time. Instead I breezed through and rode with the difficult spots. During my fast I got to my ideal body weight though I expect to add some lbs back on in the coming days. On top of all of that, great narrating Jimmy! This book was well organized and easy to listen to which I cannot say for many books of this kind.

Wow! Fabulous story that makes you think - a lot. Well written and told. This should be a movie.

I was quite disappointed with this book. It had many, too many, rabbit trails, making it difficult to figure out where the author was headed. On a positive note, the author seemed to create a painfully honest story.

While the basic information in the book was interesting and informative the book also seemed repetative. With that amount of agonizing detail, I wondered if the book was intended to be a college textbook at some point. After I finished I felt as though I could have skipped the entire second half of the book and still have come away with most of Mr. Gladwell's points. However, those points were worth the read.

Great book!

I found myself wanting to stop and take notes.
