A lovely adaptation of these entertaining stories. The narrators are so suited to their characters, and so distinct from each other that it is very easy to follow.

Makes perfect sense!

Don't be put off by the title, I am not overweight but just have an interest in nutrition, health and wellbeing. Heavy or thin, everybody should read this! This book is enlightening, it just makes so much sense! It is clearly explained and easy to understand the 'mechanics' of how our bodies work. The narrator took me a few minutes to get used to, but now I could not imagine another voice presenting it, he is entertaining and expressive. Some of the messages are repeated over and over, but there's a reason for that - they are all things that people probably already know, but obviously ignore/forget. It explains why our forebears all ate more fat and carbs then we "think" or "are told" we should, yet they did not get fat! If I had been battling weight gain for years, I think I would cry tears of joy for the information offered in this book! The statistics are interesting and well presented. Save yourself from more years of failing dieting, read this book!!! Highly recommended for ALL ages.

I read the book years ago ( but it was a challenge since I only get to read late at night) but this audio version brought it all to life for me. The first few chapters seem a little slow, but stick with it and you'll find yourself sitting in the car in your driveway as you crave that little bit more! I loved the assortment of families with their various characteristics and their continuous reappearance throughout the centuries. As an ex-pat, it took me home... I didn't want it to end...
