    Story
    "Hard to listen to"
    Would you try another book from Vinnie Tortorich and/or Vinnie Tortorich?

    While Vinnie admits to having had a speech impediment early in his life, there is little to no sign of that now. What make his reading difficult to listen to is the regional accent and the cadence of the delivery. The stories are peppered with chauvinistic commentary that feels more than a little degrading to the women about whom they are told.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    There is some decent content on diet & exercise.

    Story
    "This isn't a diet book, isn't a celebrity tell all"
    What disappointed you about Fitness Confidential?

    If you listen to Vinnie podcast, this is more of the same. I was expecting more stories about celebrities and more about meal planning. Most of the 7 hours is Vinnie going on about himself. It's just not worth a credit.

    "What a great book!"

    I have to admit that it is always refreshing to hear the truth for truths sake. Everyone wants to be better, and I love how well this book is able to cut through all the BS and inspire you to just be better and do better!

    "Amazing and inspiring"

    Vinnie is the real deal. He speaks the truth. He's not here to sugarcoat anything, that goes against the NSNG lifestyle. Take the time, listen to the book, listen to the podcast, send him a tweet and ask a question. You won't be sorry.

    Story
    "Love Vinnie's Podcasts but didn't love this book"

    I follow Vinnie's podcasts and social media stuff and love them. I was hoping to get more info on the science of No Sugar-No Grain diet and it's practical application, but this ain't it. This is a memoir. I'm now onto A Case Against Sugar by Andy (can't remember his last name) and Why We Get Fat...I understand that's probably more of what Im looking for. If you like hearing adversity tales or are into long-endurance sports, you might like this a lot. It's just not for me. Still love Vinnie though!

    Story
    "Loved it"
    What made the experience of listening to Fitness Confidential the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed listening to this book and will listen again and again. To sum this book up I would say it takes you on a journey of Vinnie's life and how he became the person he is today. I love that he did not use another person to read this book - if he would of we would miss out on all the extra stories/information he added to the audible.


    What other book might you compare Fitness Confidential to and why?

    No idea


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

    Vinnie Tortorich added extra info/stories to the audible. This is his life so he has the passion for the words in the book. His passion shows through from the start to the end of the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Vinnie's experience with cancer, fighting and overcoming.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first audible that I listened to within a week and plan to listen again and again to the book. I am sure I will pick up more pieces of information every time I listen.
