    THINK LIKE A SKINNY PERSON: Building Better Health Through Unconventional Knowledge

    Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    * I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    I was drawn to this audiobook for a couple reasons. The first reason was it's length. At just over an hour I was willing to listen. It's only an hour. I decided that even if the book was terrible I would only have wasted an hour. (Fortunately I actually really enjoyed this book, so length did not end up being a factor after all.) The second reason I wanted to listen to this audiobook was that it was written by a normal person and not a so-called "expert". The author lets the reader know immediately that he has no formal education in nutrition or weight loss. This book is just his way of sharing what has worked for him.

    James Livingood decided to ask his "skinny" friends for advice and this book is the culmination of the tips and tricks and ideas that he received from them.

    Normally I am not a fan of self-help books, I find that they come across as preachy and most often the advice is just plain ridiculous. THINK LIKE A SKINNY PERSON is NOT like that. Nowhere in the book does the author come across as if he is preaching and he does not claim to be the Dali-Lama of weight loss.

    "The first part of this book is not about giving you a bunch of advice. Instead we will take a moment to look into the mirror."

    This approach actually makes sense. Yes! I said it. A weight loss book that makes sense! Wow!

    Most of the advice and tips provided in this book are common sense. However, common sense is not very common anymore. Even people who are already aware of ideas in this book can use a reminder.

    There is mention in the introduction of the inclusion of cartoons and pictures in the book. Obviously this is missing in the audiobook version, but that did not make this book any less enjoyable.

    The narrator does a great job and provides a clear delivery of the concepts in this book.

    I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars.

    "Great tips to stay healthy!"

    I really enjoyed this book. It's not too long or complicated. It's just a bunch of very good pointers to help you stay healthy that make sense that people (including me) often forget about. For example, get more sleep. You hear that all the time, but I didn't realize that this would reset not only my brain, but my digestive system too.

    The narration was excellent. I can't imagine that it could have been read any better, or with more enthusiasm and variation in voice. In short, she kept my interest and eager for the next chapter.

    "Was curious"

    This title sounded interesting. And, it was interesting to see from the authors perspective. I found some parts more engaging or relatable than others. But, that makes sense, as we are all different. Overall, an interesting listen.

    The content is well presented and the narrator was excellent. Check it out.

    "Interesting ideas and well thought out processes"

    This audio book was informative about how to think about food and suggestions about what to do in certain situations. As someone who has struggled with dieting and exercise my whole life, most of the information presented, I had previously heard. That being said, they were presented in a way to help change your mindset about your weight and diet habits. This was very useful and could be very beneficial to users.

    I personally will be putting some of the ideas to the test in the coming months.

    I requested a preview copy of this audio book and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review.

    "Everyone should read this book"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. It is only about an hour long but it has a lot of great info. Most of the info is very much common sense but it is always good to be reminded. I don't have a weight problem but I found this book to be a good reminder of what I already do. I thought Rebecca Roberts does a wonderful job of narrating this book. I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review. Everyone should read this book!

    "Nice little book"

    Think Like a Skinny Person is short and sweet, providing just the right amount of information to make one think and explore more details. Personally, the sleep information really applies to me. I will actually be actively trying to get more sleep on a daily basis. I also plan to listen to this book again. Many helpful hints! The narrator did a good job!
