Too Much "Backstory!"
If you could sum up Thirty Days to Natural Blood Pressure Control in three words, what would they be?
TOO Much Background!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Thirty Days to Natural Blood Pressure Control?
What aspect of David DeRose’s performance would you have changed?
I'll have to think about this and get back w/you...o/w listen to the "sample" and see for yourself...
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I would have settled for either...
Any additional comments?
I believe this is a worthwhile audiobook/ either mode...I just began to listen and found Way Too Much intro, e.g. What BP is and how dangerous hypertension can be...The helpful stuff doesn't start until about chaper 5 or 6...
So, If you're listening to/reading this book, you Already KNOW that! An intro of nothing more that, "You've been told you have high blood pressure, and here's a way to help get it lower..." That's All...The scary sudden death stories, believe me, we've all heard 'em... BTW, print book is a bit pricey...the publisher should see if a lesser priced, e.g. $9.95 or lower could be offered...and,Not everyone has an "e-reader." Take Care!

Dr Derose is an easy listen. Since I’ve met and heard him speak in person it was great for him to read his own book. He is both expressive and funny along with being a great story teller.
There is MUCH common sense, which isn’t heard much any more b/c people want the easy ‘give me a pill to fix my problem’.
Although I am not a vegetarian and most likely will not become one, he wasn’t either when he started. BUT there is soooo much other helpful information here and his medical background is so helpful and he speaks simply to help you understand what you need to know to do a lot more than just lower BP.
Diabetes, Sleep and the lack thereof, weight issues, Hypertension-BP and more are all covered in this book. It’s a wealth of information ... this the reason I did audible so to have it to go back to over and over. However, my only complaint is - the book has lots of pictures and charts he refers to and with the audible version you are missing that.
