    "Extras not in printed book"

    I laughed, I cried. Vinnie comes across transparent, compassionate, and funny. I came away encouraged. I almost allowed myself to get offended a couple of times, but I don't think getting judgey is fair when somebody is putting themselves out there like the author is.

    "Reclaiming my good intentions"

    Heard about Vinnie on the Adam Corrola podcast. I think the best thing about this guy is all of the content he puts out. I read the book and got started on the diet. I listen to his podcasts now at the gym. I literally just tweeted him a question and he responded in under a minute. Clearly didn't lie when he said "I want to be your personal trainer".

    "Enjoyable!"

    I appreciate that it sounded like he was just sitting and talking and not just reading a book. And I enjoyed the extras that were added that weren't in the hard copy.

    "Obnoxious but can't get enough"

    Been listening to podcast for over 5 years. Vinnie is obnoxious, but very entertaining. Not a fitness or health book. Listened to book twice now.

    Story
    "Funny and informative"

    I wasn't expecting quite the listen that I got. I've listened to a few fitness books and they all go in to great detail about the science of nutrition and exercise. This book doesn't. It does tell you all you need to know, wrapped up in funny and entertaining anecdotes. It's well worth a listen even if you're not into fitness.

    "Entertaining and worth a listen"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes it gives a useful insigt into the authors journey


    Would you recommend Fitness Confidential to your friends? Why or why not?

    If they wanted a fitness book with a different slant then yes!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Vinnie Tortorich?

    Yes.


    Was Fitness Confidential worth the listening time?

    Yes it was worth listening to..


    Any additional comments?

    A different slant on a fitness book which kept me entertained and the underlying message with regard to Carbs etc.. has some good real foundation currently.
