This was one of the worst books I ever downloaded, and let me tell you why. First of all, I love audiobooks about epigenetics, health, disease, and biology -- so I'm familiar with this non-fiction genre. Secondly, I drive long distances regularly, with 5+ hour drives. I downloaded this book right before a very long road trip, and this is essentially how it went:
"Is it possible you could have dirty genes? Please take our questionnaire in the enhancement PDF..."
"For a list of diseases, syndromes, and issues that are likely the result of dirty genes, please refer to the enhancement..."
"What are some of the symptoms of dirty genes? Please read page 2 and 3 of the enhancement..."
"For a complete list of the kinds of things that can dirty up your genes, please refer to the enhancement PDF..."
"Foods and nutrients can help scrub dirty genes clean. For a list of those foods, please refer to the PDF enhancement..."
You get the idea. A complete joke. If I wanted to continually read and refer to something on paper or screen, then I would have bought the Kindle version. Nearly every other audiobook I've listened to in the biomedical sciences have included every list, every word, every questionnaire, every footnote in the audiobook, because most of the time people listening don't have the desire or the ability to go into a computer or device and download a document. That's the whole purpose of an audiobook. I don't understand why the author or publisher would allow it with this one, but the whole thing just comes off as lazy and incomplete. I'm returning for a credit.
(Side note, at the same time I also downloaded "The Longevity Code" by Kris Verburgh, MD which is on a similar topic. MUCH more thorough, so I recommend that instead.)

Book is eye opening. This books explains how you genes can get dirty or how you can change your environmental factors to alleviate dirty genes. I've bought all 3 versions - hardcover, Kindle and audiobook.
The book refers to a reference file called "the enhancement" that is not yet loaded on audible.com. It is supposed to contain additional information, checklist and recipes, etc. Looking forward to the publisher to post the PDF file.
I would recommend that other audiobook reviewers hold off of putting a negative review because the PDF has not been loaded yet. The publisher has been notified to correct issue.

I felt like this book was written for me ! Audible 1st time experience was fantastic. Suffering with autoimmune chronic illness I'm unable to concentrate & read. Narrator was great & content spot on. Being able to listen over and over again wonderful , although not difficult content to grasp & more to do with me being I'll.
