I wanted to stab myself in the ears listening to the computer generated narration. No one should have to put themselves through this. narration aside the content of the book is informative and based on sound research.

Super complex system. I've read The Obesity Code, Keto-Clarity, The Calorie Myth, The Guide to Intermittent Fasting, The Big Fat Surprise, Bigger Leaner Stronger, Why We Get Fat and The Case Against Sugar. Do not recommend this book. I suggest The Calorie Myth and Why We Get Fat if you are reading this to lose weight.

Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what's making us fat - and how we can change - in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes' crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

Better than Obesity Code, Calorie Myth, Keto-Clarity and any other book on the topic. I've spent the last 6 months reading anything I can find on the topic. This is by far the clearest and most practical advice I've read. If you are reading this reviewing you're wasting time not listening to this book.

In The Tipping Point, New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell looks at why major changes in society happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a few fare-beaters and graffiti artists fuel a subway crime wave, or a satisfied customer fill the empty tables of a new restaurant. These are social epidemics, and the moment when they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping Point.

Malcolm offers not only his theories to explain tipping points but also several other explanations for the phenomena. I intended on listening to this during a week of commute time but found the time to listen to it in 2 days. I will read it again and again.
