    4 out of 5 stars 31

Traditional businesses follow a simple formula: create a product or service, sell it, collect money. But in the last few years a fundamentally different model has taken root—one in which consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power. Pioneering entrepreneur Lisa Gansky calls it the Mesh and reveals why it will dominate the future of business.

What made the experience of listening to The Mesh the most enjoyable?

Lisa Gansky presents a new business concept that is exciting in many ways.

What did you like best about this story?

My head is filled with good ideas after listening to this book.

What didn’t you like about Lisa Gansky’s performance?

The book is read like a boring lecture that is only redeemed by the quality of the information presented.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is difficult to listen to this book in one sitting because there is no story to grab your attention. The information is presented more like a series of case studies.

Any additional comments?

Buy this audio book to be informed about the subject. Do not buy it if you are searching for entertainment.

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.

I lost 20 pounds in two months following Gary's recommendations. I feel great and most of my ills are gone. My BMI is currently 25.9 down from 29.2 People say I look 10 years younger other more than that. Great book! Thanks!
