The exercise part of this is great - flexible, and truly only takes a few minutes a day. AND Jorge includes a nice CD with motivational messages. The diet plan requires keeping track of what you eat on a chart - a great idea, but I'd need more details about expectations than what he includes. But if you are a true beginner to exercise and healthy eating, this book is a good place to start.
Just like "Jonathon Livingston Seagull" and "Illusions," this book takes the unexplainable and puts it in a story that warms your heart and gives you hope for the world. What a wonderful way to spend a couple hours..... more than once! :)
The title, or even the cover, don't give a hint to the subject matter, or how you'll be engrossed in this story. from start to finish. unpredictable..... yet when all is said and done, you may tell yourself "of course, it had to be that way." a truly enjoyable read.
I particularly enjoyed listening to this book, as opposed to reading it. As the story was told from three decidedly different points of view (two Queens and a Boleyn), it was narrated by three different people - making it realistic. and absolutely spellbinding.
I decided to try this book because I loved "Pillars of the Earth" so much, and wanted to see if I would Follet's style as much in this thriller (a genre I usually don't read.) Well, I loved it - couldn't stop listening until it was over.......and wanted more.
My version of this book was on CD - which added a whole new flavor to a really great book. Hearing the dialog expressed with such perfect intonation had me smiling the whole time I listening. This was a great read/listen!
Narrated by the author (the woman the TV Show "The Medium" is based on), this book is much more practical that you would guess. Allison tells us of her real life experiences - and the REAL life of a medium. Her matter of fact approach to the subject is really appealing, and she gives excellent tips for the rest of us....
I can't put to words how much I enjoyed listening to this book. Narrated by the author - who has been there and back again, working at the National Lampoon and on TV - this introspective journey never disappoints. brutally honest from beginning to end, Tony tells how this humble man, Father Joe, walked with him down the path of life.
While I did enjoy the book, to me the title had suggested something a little "fluffier" than that what this way - especially with the way it begin. While the story seemed a little choppy, I think that may have been due to the abridgement - it's still a good read with interesting characters, to be sure.
A truly well-written story detailing the many paths a marriage can take, and how we got there to begin with..... This was especially well narrated with a Southern accent to match the locale of the story. Two thumbs up!
For once, a book as good as the hype. The narration is exceptional, and the story is universal. Set in the South in the 60's, right after the passing of the civil rights act, this story is a particularly good one to read now - as our country takes another giant step forward....
A touching, poignant, yet intense story of the timeless bonds between women - and how they truly guide they passages of our lives, contrary to what men think they understand. :) Set in the time of foot binding and strict social obligations, this beautifully narrated story transports you to life in a society where rules guided every minute of every day for women - if not their thoughts.
I really enjoyed the homespun way this story unfolded - and the narration was spot on, bringing you into the panhandle hog ranch drama. Prior to starting this book, I knew nothing of this kind of prairie angst - but I'm ever so much smarter now, and I surely did enjoy my time with Bob Dollar and the folks of Woolybucket.
