Would you try another book from Michael Matthews and/or Jeff Justus?
If you’ve listened to books by Michael Matthews before, how does this one compare?
I have not but, this one was good
Which character – as performed by Jeff Justus – was your favorite?
Jeff Justus read this like he was talking to a twenty something man, not a woman. It felt like what "Maxim" magazine would sound like on audio. Don't you want, strong, sexy, hot, and awesome hotness, lean, sexy, hotness? Well, I am going to tell you how to sexy up your work out... Something like that.
Do you think Thinner Leaner Stronger needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No. This book provides a fundamental concept of resistance training and proper diet and supplements. This is definitely very sound advice. The production just doesn't work for me.
Any additional comments?
There is nothing particularly new in this book but, it is sound advice. The book definitely sounds like it was written for a man though. Perhaps the narrator is simply trying to "sexy" it too much but, this definitely sounds like it was written for a man, not a woman

What disappointed you about Thinner Leaner Stronger?
I'm upset that this book was supposed to focus on "The Ultimate Female Body", but uses examples of 250 pound men trying to maintain below 8% bodyfat. These examples don't give me what I thought I was listening to - a book focused on women. And these examples cannot translate to the female figure! False advertising -- he's just reusing chapters of his male-focused book in order to sell to a different demographic. It feels cheap.
What could Michael Matthews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
He could have kept to the promise of a book about the Female Body and used exclusively female examples!

Probably best to not get it as audio as I could have done with some of the information written down for me and to keep having to rewind the audio is more than annoying. Also the guy who narrates it can't always say his 'W's properly and pronounces it like the way Stewie says 'coolwhip' in Family Guy. But overall great book!

This and Bigger Leaner Stronger (for men) are the absolute bible for those wanting to achieve health strength and fitness, naturally. If you follow this book to the letter you 'cannot' fail. Mike Mathews has changed my life!

A great no-nonsense guide to health & fitness. Stresses hard work, discipline and proper techniques over quick fixes that aren't sustainable.

Thinner Leaner Stronger is exactly the resource I've been looking for! For the past 9 months I've been fascinated with building a better, healthier and leaner body, but have struggled to find something female specific. This book packages up everything you need to know, and the convenience of having it in audio means I can listen to and from work, and I can pick and choose which chapters I'd like to revisit. Thank you so much- have already started implementing your strategies, and have been raving about it to a bunch of friends! :)
