There was a lot of great information here, but the supplement is inadequate for an audiobook in this genre. I would be willing to raise my rating if Tantor Media would revise the supplement material. It is a shame that such great info is included but it's essentially useless if it is audio only.
The supplement does not include the recipes in the book. So if you wanted to make any of the items from that chapter you'd have to locate the part of the audio and then take dictation. Yeah - not gonna happen. So, that chapter is entirely useless to me, on par with listening to someone read the phone book beginning with Adams when you need the number for Zeller. Don't release this as an audiobook if it's not equally as good a resource as the print version.
The supplement does not include a description or images of the exercises. They are verbally described in the audio, but at the end of the book when you want to do a workout and you have a list of moves, if you're not sure what a Russian Twist is you have to go to another resource to find it on your own.
The food lists were described in the audio to contain items not in alphabetical order but from best food choices (according to the glycemic index and other considerations) to the not so best choice near the bottom of the list. The supplement seems to have the first few charts in this manner but then the charts for vegetables and fruit and other carbs are in fact alphabetical. For example Bagel is at the top of one list, which I can't imagine is a best choice; even though it's my favorite and I'd love to believe that incorporating more bagels into my life would be a good idea (I wish!).
Aside from my poor supplement gripes there is a ton of great information, backed by scientific studies included in this book. I would give this 4 stars for material if the supplement were revised. The only negative thing I would say is the diet suggestions are one size fits all. There is a suggestion for males and a suggestion for females and no variation accounting for height, lifestyle activity levels, or body size. For such a well researched and thoughtful program I would have expected more.
Lastly, to address some of of the other reviewers here looking for the supplement. You have to visit your Audible Library on the Web to access the pdf. Supplements are not included on the audible app. I also tried to follow the direction suggested in the audio, going to the Tantor site. The information was not there. I contacted the author on twitter (he never replied to me) and then I eventually found the pdf on my account library on the audible website.

No reason to purchase as there is nothing here you don’t already know except he want you to do it in 25 day increments.
