Its a good listen despite being totally misleading

What would have made Fitness Confidential better?

Any Actual fitness or diet advice would have been nice. No Sugar No Grains, Lift free weights... That's IT !
Two of the 4 Covers major selling points DON'T EXIST in the book

NO Fitness Advice.

His store does inspire.

No Dirt, other than he hates all but private gyms and all trainers other than himself can't be trusted and are incompetent out only for money.

And it is very confidential. He keeps all the useful information to himself

How could the performance have been better?

The author tries on many occasions to make the narration sound spontaneous with little anecdotes. It doesn't work. Bad Idea.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fitness Confidential?

Tell the Truth.

Its your standard Sports biography all about his life and how great he is. Standard " I was born in a log cabin" stuff and I did it all myself except for the help from some of the Top Doctors and endurance athletes Blah blah.

Any additional comments?

Its a good listen despite being totally misleading about the content.

Vinnie's story

What disappointed you about Fitness Confidential?

This book was more about Vinnie then fitness. He talks about his young life, being in football, being a fitness instructor, sex with customers, cancer, his bike races etc.
What little fitness he discusses items such as this: calories in does not equal calories out. A clear violation of thermodynamics. Do not eat grains or sugar but all the bacon and fat you want (a modified Atkin's diet) which is unhealthy in the long run.

Has Fitness Confidential turned you off from other books in this genre?

No just his future books!

What didn’t you like about Vinnie Tortorich’s performance?

Vinnie thinks he is a comedian so he continually broke script from his written books to crack unfunny jokes.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment that I wasted money on the book and Vinnie profited from it.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste a penny on the audio.
