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.

Surprisingly decent!

The book IS a good reminder of how to do things the right way. One could say it's simple, but it really covers all the basics necessary to know how to deal with nutrition, training, and plan general goals for your life.

You could perhaps get all the info in bullet points and 20 pages would do. But again, it's 20 pages you really should really.

If you are a fan of Stallone's, it won't disappoint either. It goes into detail about how he shaped his body from movie A to B. It won't give you the specific workouts, but you'll get a good idea of goals, challenges, and overall Stallone's trivia. The lack of specific workouts is the only thing this book is missing. Apparently a booklet comes with the physical version of the audiobook, but Audible hasn't uploaded any extra material. Maybe it's there??

If you a fan of Stallone's but not into fitness, read it.
If you're starting to get into fitness, read it, too.

Brilliant!, interesting and packed full of wisdom.

From start to finish this book is truly brilliant. Its brilliant in the sense that it is well written and extremely interesting, once you start you wont want to stop listening. The book is packed full of wisdom that Stallone has clearly gathered from his long, amazing and colourful career.

The book is semi autobiographical and because many of us have grown up watching Stallone in films it really helps us as the reader / listener to connect with him, it adds a dimension of warmth to the book.

Regardless of age or sex anybody can follow the practical guidance within this book .

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.
