Six years ago, Dr. Michael Mosley started a health revolution with The 5.2 Fast Diet, telling the world about the incredible power of intermittent fasting. In this audiobook, he brings together all the latest science (including a new approach: time-restricted eating) to create an easy-to-follow programme. Recent studies have shown that 800 calories is the magic number when it comes to successful dieting - it’s an amount high enough to be manageable but low enough to speed weight loss and trigger a range of desirable metabolic changes.

I heard an interview of him on the radio and wanted to get my hands on the book. I listened to it in one sitting and it was definitely worth it. It comes with a PDF of 104 pages which I promptly printed. It was worth it. So if you wanted the recipes without having to purchase the book then not an issue.
I like his voice, it was easy to listen to and he had enough personal story to back up what the book was about.
Getting this book is worth it and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Since childhood Nila Carter has been made to spend every weekend at the family cabin. In her teenage years she believes it to be a prison; as an adult it becomes her sanctuary and means to survive. When a mysterious outbreak occurs in India, Nila's brother, Bobby, a virologist with the CDC, places the family on a precautionary alert to be ready to bug out. Unlike anything he's ever seen, the rabies-like virus is not just deadly; it causes extreme violent behavior in those infected.

Now I have finished listening this I am torn between reading the second in eBook or waiting in hopeful anticipation that the audible version will be released in Australia ASAP!
I enjoyed listening to this story so much that I listened as much as I could - in the shower, the bath, cooking dinner, making school lunches ect and before I knew it I was finished. So sad.
I will get the second book - the story compels me to find out what happened.

I devoured the first book via ebook but was unable to get an ebook version of this book, hence the audible version. I don’t normal get into audible books that aren’t self help or the like.
I was so into this book though, I feel it’s realistic in the outcome of a similar situation however all the military talk and references make me wonder if it would be that way for one small town.
The voice of the reader was perfect and I would definitely listen to him again.
I would read more books by the same author.
I love this genre and tend to devour anything I can my hands on.
I will say to those hoping for the same type of reading if the first book this is not that. It’s not so much focused on individual survival as it is on group survival.
An enjoyable book non the less.

If you have always been drawn to word, have vivid imagination, and possess knack for putting your mental pictures into words, you have probably been drawn to, or tried your hand at writing, one or more times in your life. Every day we see the newly released books hitting the shelves or e-books becoming available online, and we are compelled to consider what it takes to turn our way with words into a vessel which is able to transport us to greatness as authors.

I've heard amazing things about this book yet the narrator was difficult for me to listen to. I would prefer to get a refund. I've tried a few times to listen thinking perhaps I was too tired however it didn't matter I just couldn't get into the audio version.

I adored this book. It has made me rethink some of my own and my family's habits especially my children. I now question more behaviours.
I will be listening to this again.
The narrator was very easy to listen to.
Well worth acquiring.
