Great, great, great. well researched and well described. Some of the examples went on a bit too much and I'd forgotten the point by the time we got there. Overall well laid out and easy to understand. It was the kind of book that you could only listen to in 30min chunks so that you could absorb all of the information.

Funny, enjoyable, not better than the first book

I really enjoyed the first book, and this was enjoyable but not as good as the first. Just as many laugh out loud moments but also some cringe-worthy ones where if I could I would have shaken both Don and Rosie. Probably well written to evoke that emotion for the characters but not as enjoyable.

A different kind of romance

This was the first audio book I tried and it was fantastic. We listened to this driving across from Perth to Sydney so had a decent amount of time to listen. The narrator did a great job at making the characters distinguishable and making fun of Dons traits without being insulting. A refreshing book with many laugh out loud moments.

Loved it

This was one of my first audio books and I loved it. I really enjoyed the story and thought the narrator did a great job at making the character come to life. There were a few slow moments when I wondered when the Pacific Crest Trail would end, or the character would buy boots that fit, but overall a really good story.

I had high hopes for this and Amy Poehler is a funny lady. But I really struggled to find this interesting, I listened to about half of it to see if it got better, it didn't. I couldn't find the structure in the story, it jumped around quite a lot and was a little boring. Not for me.

Slow, but good

Colin Firth makes this book. I could listen to him read an encyclopedia. In saying that, I found the book quite similar to Australian drama. It was a really slow novel, not one that I couldn't put down, but still enjoyable. Some moments needed perseverance but the depth in the characters and story were rewarding at the end.

Great story

I loved listening to this story, so much so that I'd sit in the car after my drive had finished so I could make it to the end of the chapter. I found some of the plot twists predictable but still enjoyable. Highly recommended.

This was easy to listen to and broken up into easy to understand segments. Bree Brown has a lovely voice. I thought this would be her narrating the book but it is actually her going through the contents of her book as part of recorded seminars. I'd often only listen to 30 - 45mins at a time so I could take time afterwards and think about the content. The audiobook would really benefit with a small 5 - 10 page summary workbook.

Fantastic

A great story with the right balance of fitness information, research and personal story.
Even better was having Vinnie narrate it because it felt like you really did have your own personal trainer.
