I wanted to start an exercise program in a safe way that would achieve results. This book not only showed me how to do that, it cleared up a lot of confusions I had on the subject of how people get fat. It made sense and was refreshing to read, especially after being bombarded with misinformation from other sources. The author connects with the reader and it is quite an experience to read this book - it's almost like attending his heartwarming lectures.
