I am a member of Sparkpeople.com and have been for 3 years...The Spark brings it all together and really helps with motivation which I have been lacking. Check out Sparkpeople.com to go with this book. You're going to love it too!
I enjoyed listening to the Spark. It got me more
motivated to weight loss and fitness. I feel my
overall health has improved since listening to
The Spark. I would recommend it to others.
"You are buying an advertisement"
The book is just one long advertisement for the website. He mentions his clients over and over again.
If I ever think that I'm just not getting exposed to enough marketing in my life and I feel the need to pay for some more, I will grab his next book.
I've listened to at least 20 audiobooks and this is the first time I actually wanted my money back! I couldn't finish it.
"One of the Best Books ever written"
If you have been struggling with weight loss issues and have tried every single diet known to man or woman, this book is for you.
This is not a "DIET" diets don't work, and set you up for failure.
This book is about making small changes, one step at a time, and as you make these small changes, you begin to "spark" other changes.
I personally had given up, and taken a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) attitude. I was observing life from the sidelines, and after reading this book, so far I've lost 70 pounds in 14 months, and I am now enjoying participating in life.
If I can do this, so can you.
"Extremely Motivating Audio"
I have listened to the audio several times , and I learn more each time
"Just story telling, no breakthrough"
talking about losing weight, getting fit, nutrition information would have been nice, anything
not write it.
cant answer this question, just a waste of time
one word: DUMBFOUNDED
Don't buy it, if you are interested in learning more about fitness and nutrition.
"Not much to learn from..."
If you already know Spark people, you will waste your time with this book. If you don't, it is a OK book but nothing revolutionary in this method.
This is my first Audio Book. I put it in my I pod to listen to while I walk!
The whole book is based on realistic ways to change your life, no matter your age.
Very motivating and you set small reachable goals and go from there.
His life experiences, how his raised self confidence and self esteem changed his life.
Positive self talk, how to Grocery shop, how to plan meals, nutrition. How to set and achieve goals. Life Changing!
This is the number 1 book I recommend to friends and family.
"I am a Sparker!"
Chris Downie's personal experience and how he build the Sparkpeople business and why he is wants and is able to keep it free. He is a very sincere guy and you can tell in the way he write's this book.
How Chris, without knowing it at the time, sparked a coworker of his named Pat. That story is so inspirational.
I am a member of Sparkpeople and have lost a lot of weight. I have made many friends along the way as well. I use the "Four Corner Stones" everyday. The corner stones are very easy to incorporate into your daily life and build on one another.
This book should be titled "Motivation and Goals" not Spark....this is about weight loss ..there are no specfics in this book just generalities about motivation..dah! Like I didn't know that...save your money and joing Weight Watchers!
