good but incomplete

i'm a huge sly fan and found this to be an entertaining read, even informative but to truly benefit from the workout material this audiobook should have offered an accompanimental download for referencing the exercises. that alone would have made this a 5 star read. also, i think stallone actually should have narrated this himself. we're familiar with his unique voice and spend most of the listen imagining him reading it anyway. it would have made for a nice personal touch.

A pretty good listen...

Overall, I enjoyed listening to this book. Sly did good by choosing someone else to narrate this. He touches on the reality of fitness, and offers some good advice. Like most fitness and diet programs, if you've used a few in the past, you'll find yourself picking and choosing what will help you. Comparing it to Bill Phillips talking on the Body For Life program, it's not near as motivating, even leaving you with a little dry feeling. But it will get you solid advice, and it's pretty straight forward. A quick listen at just under three hours. I'll give this book four stars.

Sly moves will help you tremedously.

Would you listen to Sly Moves again? Why?

Yes. This book shows you how he is able to be in great shape in his 50's and 60's. Did you think it's over for you because your a senior? Well, not now!!! You can be stronger, faster and fitter than your 20 and 30 something untrained friends. Just do what this book says.

What did you like best about this story?

The personal details of Stallones own experience, along with the great tips on fitness and nutrition.

Have you listened to any of Robb Webb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Actually wish that Stallone had narrated it himself, although Robb did a good job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me realize I don't have to fear age. Time flys....but I'm the pilot.

Any additional comments?

Get this book, rent the Rocky Movies...and change your life.

Inspiring.. nothing more

It is sad that this book is so motivating for me, but still there are some key ingridience missing.

I was imaginging Silver Stallone reading the book all the time, it would be cool if he had done that.. but the most importand part is missing.. the exersices. Without them this book is a 3 star book, but should be 5 star!

Short Missing Stupid

Listen to Sly reminisce -- no info - no recipes as referenced in the book. Pretty worthless

Surprizing and informative

I am not a "Sly" fan by any means, but had seen him interviewed numerous times on non cinematic subjects and found him intelligent, driven and amusing. If you want to learn about nutrition, exercise and improving your life, and have an entertaining back story about SS, then this is really a very good book.

Awesome.. Sly Stallone Mentor

Love, admire, trust and respect Sylvester Stalone, and his work. Enjoyed learning his life struggles and how he got and maintained his healthy and sexy physic. I'm looking forward to implementing his tips and hopefully achieving my fitness goals. Rocky/Sly's got my back...so I'm sure I will do it. I highly recommend this book, loved it. thx Mr. Stallone!!!

This is not a how to book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book was 95% mini Biography. I can't say I learned a single thing about working or muscle building from this book. It made me laugh a couple of times, he is an amazing person but it should not be in the Fitness section, not at all.

Brilliant

As a person who's very interested in health, fitness an wellbeing this audio book was a great listen to affirm to anyone what we already know deep down but often struggle to put into action, sly has achieved an amazing amount in his lifetime and is a role model to many people (including myself) .
Everyone should give this a listen including children, teenagers and adults alike to help the world get healthier, stronger and happier.
