Would you listen to The Blue Zones Solution again? Why?

Yes, I loved this book. As a dietitian and personal trainer, clients are always wanting to follow a fad diet. I have always rejected the all or nothing mentality and try to keep messages simple and science-based. This book illustrates that movement, connection and a Mediterranean diet should be embraced and eliminating most carbs and increased meat intake are not paramount to good health.

What does Joe Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love audio books because I can go back and replay areas that I want to cement in my memory. I've listened to many other books that Joe has narrated and find his voice very calming.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

  • A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
  • By: Mark Manson
  • Narrated by: Roger Wayne

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Narrator was good. Content in the book was not. Author seems arrogant
