Publisher's Summary

WARNING: This is not the actual audiobook Fat Chance by Robert Lustig. Do not buy this summary if you are looking for a full copy of the audiobook.
Instead, we have already listened to the entire audiobook for you. We pulled out all the key insights, events and take-away points relating to sugar, junk food, obesity, diabetes and so much more to give you a comprehensive chapter-by-chapter summary and analysis designed to save you a few hours. In doing so, unfortunately we cannot give you hours and hours of listening covering all of the background scenery or anecdotes. For that, we encourage you to purchase a copy of the full audiobook.
Presented in an engaging and easily digestible format, this concise summary works great. Or, if you're not ready to listen to the full audiobook yet but still want some analysis and insight, then this is a great way to save a little money and a lot of time.
Fat Chance by Robert Lustig:
No matter where you go or what you do, it's nearly impossible to miss the signs that we are facing an obesity epidemic. At the same time, it's nearly impossible to avoid advertisements for fast food - which, amusingly, are frequently positioned immediately adjacent to public service announcements about obesity. Everybody is quick to assign blame elsewhere: The food industry points to television, video games and computers; television points back at the fast food and junk food industries.
In Fat Chance, Robert Lustig presents a compelling argument that will no doubt awaken many from their sugar-induced stupor. His suggestions and solutions may not win him any friends in the fast food industry as listeners may steer their cars away from drive-thru windows and head towards the supermarket health aisle, but the forcefulness of his ideas should serve as a wake-up call to both listeners and those specific industries to begin to change their ways and do their part in rectifying our obesity-fueled, ticking time-bomb.

Most irritating formatted book in my Library!

Any additional comments?

There are 18 chapters in this short 33 minute summary and each chapter is broken up by a irritating tune (both Pre & Post), therefore wasting time. A commercial for their products prior to the book also wastes time. The book summary is just OK. Would not buy a book form this company again, unless they reformat. I have got 340 titles in my library & this is the first review I have been compelled to write, such an irritating book to listen to.

Terrible. This "summary" skips over the most important parts of the book! Don't waste your money.
