An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

If you had told Helen two years ago that she would be getting up at six a.m. on Sundays to swim in a freezing reservoir and spending her Saturday nights unshowered and covered in mud in a pub, she would have spat out her champagne. But when everyone around you starts settling down, what else is a glamorous party girl to do but to launch herself into the world of endurance sport?

Twenty years ago Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to celebrate the green and kindly island that had become his adopted country. The hilarious book that resulted, Notes from a Small Island, was taken to the nation’s heart and became the best-selling travel book ever and was voted in a BBC poll the book that best represents Britain. Now, to mark the 20th anniversary of that modern classic, Bryson makes a brand-new journey around Britain to see what has changed.

What made the experience of listening to The Road to Little Dribbling the most enjoyable?

Bill has an enjoyable style, and it was very well written.

Any additional comments?

It's not Bryson's best, but it is still worth listening to, and despite what other reviewers have said, the narrator really isn't that bad.

Certainly not as good as William Roberts, and maybe not as authentic as Bryson himself, but he does lend the book character, and I dont think it lets the overall experience down. He's just a different voice to the other Bryson books,

Putting Out of Your Mind is an informative and valuable guide to achieving a better golf game. While most spend their time trying to perfect their swing, Rotella encourages golfers to concentrate on their putting: the most crucial yet often overlooked aspect of the game. From true-life stories of such greats as Davis Love III, David Duvall, and Brad Faxon, to dozens of game-changing practice drills, Putting Out of Your Mind is the new bible of putting for amateurs and pros alike.

Bob Rotella is one of the greatest narrators on Audible.



Combine that with an intimate knowledge of the mental game of golf, and this is an awesome audiobook.



It might be a bit short, but it isnt a huge issue, as he has other audiobooks which are equally as good.

Quite simply, Jared Tendler is the best coach for the mental game. He is to poker as Bob Rotella is to golf.



Its probably one of the most important aspects to master in poker, as it will affect your play no matter what your skill level. And having a solid mental game will get you on the right track if you are still learning.

Danny Wallace had been staying in. Far too much. Having been dumped by his girlfriend, he really wasn't doing the young, free and single thing very well. Instead he was avoiding people. Texting them instead of calling them. Calling them instead of meeting them. That is until one fateful date when a mystery man on a late-night bus told him to 'say yes more'. These three simple words changed Danny's life forever. Yes Man is the story of what happened when Danny decided to say YES to everything.

I wasn't sure whether i'd "get" Danny Wallace before listening to this. But I liked the idea, and gave it a chance.

Started yesterday, and finished today.

Brilliant. A very entertaining and funny story that makes you look at life in a different light, managing both to enlighten and enhance it.

Just sad the story had to end. : )

This audio programme is for anyone who feels there is something missing from his or her life, or for anyone wanting to escape from a job, a town, a relationship, specific problems or a general low period in life. It is a powerful spiritual story with many twists and turns that ultimately explains and delivers what was missing in Ron's life and is probably missing in yours, too. This is Ron Holland at his very best, turning his own adversity into phenomenal success and happiness.
