Not the best on fasting

Far too many references to God and the bible.
I did not buy this book for a lesson on religion. I have read better books on fasting. Quite disappointing!

More like church than health information.

If you are super religious and want to learn about fasting, then this is the book for you!! Me, I don't mind references to the Bible, and Jesus indeed did fast but I feel the book crossed too far over from informative to preaching. Maybe it gets better but the first couple of chapters were so preachy that I gave up. In fact, this might be the first audible boom where I seriously want my money back. The narrator was quite good and was not the reason I disliked the book.

Excellent book content. Semi inept narrator

LOVE the content. However, it was a struggle to get all the way through the book because the narrator kept mispronouncing critical words. For example, autophagy, saying aw•tō•phā’•gee rather than aw•taw’•fuh•gee. And for turmeric, saying tū’•mər•ik, rather than tər’-mə-rik. There are no tumors in turmeric. There were others. Ouch! If you're going to narrate a book and come across a somewhat new or unfamiliar term, please do your due diligence and look up proper pronunciation. These are all even available for reference on YouTube. This was considerable disservice to the excellent work of Jordan Rubin and Dr Josh Ash. Sadly, I will probably avoid books narrated by this person in the future.

Some of this content was reinforcement things I've already learned elsewhere, however, I learned significant beneficial pieces of information that will serve me well for the rest of my life. Deep gratitude to the authors!
