What disappointed you about Thinner Leaner Stronger?

I'm upset that this book was supposed to focus on "The Ultimate Female Body", but uses examples of 250 pound men trying to maintain below 8% bodyfat. These examples don't give me what I thought I was listening to - a book focused on women. And these examples cannot translate to the female figure! False advertising -- he's just reusing chapters of his male-focused book in order to sell to a different demographic. It feels cheap.

What could Michael Matthews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have kept to the promise of a book about the Female Body and used exclusively female examples!
