Summary

Now is not the time to start that fitness program! Instead, laugh along with humorist Dave Barry as he debunks, demotivates, and delights on the subject of fitness. Hear his inimitable views on exercise ("the best time would be the first thing after Easter, but not the one coming up"), weights ("big-time lifters have turned into 400-pound hairy sweaty shapeless grunting masses of tissue. And the men are even worse"), and much more.

Excellent

I read the book several years ago and thought it was funny. But listening to Arte Johnson read it is even funnier! I almost hurt myself I was laughing so hard.

A Dave Barry Classic.

Anyone thats ever struggled with weight or body issues and those with annoying gym rat friends and anorexic family members will appreciate this book. His parodies of BS lifestyle advertising and fitness trends are brutally executed yet remain completely G-Rated. Art Johnson always makes Dave Barry's Audio books funnier.
