Should come with a hilarity warning.
First, I like the book. The information in it is truly helpful if you can get passed the "on the fly" translation you have to do while listening to Mr. Robot read the book. There's a name for a narrator but I'm not buying it. The information is on target, having to stop and think "What was that? Gluten Narrow Mindedness? Oh Gluten intolerance." and catch up. My favorite was when the reader was going over why females (called ladies in the book) have a tougher time getting rid of belly fat. He mentions how "ladies" get frustrated and approach exercise regimens by "thrashing with a retribution" (thrashing with a vengence?). Amazon needs to send this book back to its publisher with the request that they get a translator who is fluent in English, doesn't matter if it's UK or US English, just English.
I won't be returning this book because the information itself, once you translate it, is great, especially the information that explains why the gut is known as the "second brain", how to treat it properly as such. So I recommend it but definitely be prepared for some "on the fly" deciphering of phrases and keep your sense of humor.

Rubbish and Ludicrous, I want my 1 credit back.
For God's sake, "exercise center", "the portable weight", "acid smuthering medication", "over the top medication", "entire milk", "your stomach pouch", "horrendous gi discharge". This book is a collection of English lexicon jokes. Here's once the narrator pretends being in the USA, another time pretends do be in the UK. It sounds like the text was translated by software from mandarin, and glued together. The narrator repeats several the same paragraph twice in many occasions. What a rubbish audiobook. I do want my 1 credit back immediately.
