Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I have not yet finished this book, so take my review as you will. I kept having to rewind and listen to parts over again to catch everything. There is a lot of information, and while I generally prefer audio to hard copy books, I felt that I needed to have the information in writing.. I've ordered a hard copy and I think listening will be better if I can refer to earlier sections as new data is introduced.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
endocrinology is very interesting, but I find it too complex for an audio book.

This is the kind of book that loses me. I get confused trying to remember all the detailed info I just read. That said, I'm listening to the audiobook and thinking " I should be taking notes! I'm never going to remember all this." Maybe if I were a doctor this would make more sense, but I feel much more prepared to have a more meaningful conversation, that makes sense, with my endocrinologist at my next appointment.
The take home I got from this book is; what I'm currently doing to manage my health isn't working, but there are other methods available. I have modified my diet after listening to this book and I am truly amazed at the improvement in my overall health.

What made the experience of listening to Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? the most enjoyable?
The narrator was clear, well-paced, enthusiastic - helping to maintain interest in more complex areas of the book which could have sounded very laborious given the level of detail.
What did you like best about this story?
I am a naturopathic nutrition student, so I bought this book to help me with an assignment and my understanding of the thyroid function, and hoped it would also relate to the rest of the body. It does! Treating the body and mind as a whole is how the author approaches thyroid problems - wonderful. He also clarifies the difference between hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's. He clarifies a number of topics which have so far remained hazy to me in my lectures. There is a LOT of detail, so I have now bought the paperback so I can refer to the 'charts' and 'solutions' on a more regular basis, to increase the solidity of the knowledge gained. Wonderful book - very happy.
What does Keith Michaels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
His enthusiasm, energy and emphasis upon certain words is paced beautifully. I am also hard of hearing, so, the clarity and pace were appreciated further. I am not able to read books whilst driving or walking my dog, this is the benefit of audible. However, I have since bought the paperback due to the detail in the book and wanting to review it. Keith Michaels however, I will be listening to again, and am happy to listen to this book all over again - thanks to his narration.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me have eureka moments, where clarity and interest in a point climaxes to the moment of understanding and hopefully, will eventually become knowledge. I found myself relaying information in the book to friends and family, as it excited me to know and understand the topics in the book.
Any additional comments?
Just, GREAT book! You'll probably want to buy the paperback if you intend to act upon the recommendations within the book, to have it to refer to for test results (from the doctor) and help you if you, or someone you know, has problems with their thyroid - or rather, is showing symptoms of thyroid problems. If you are interested in nutrition also, this book will demonstrate the affect nutrition has.

Although a lot of it baffled me (the recommended vitamins and minerals as I have never heard of them and wouldn't know where to begin getting them from) I really enjoyed listening to the book. Had I bought it to read I would have switched off, however on audible, it felt like it was being explained to me.
There are so many factors to hashimotos disease and although my lab work is saying I am being treated successfully, I still have the symptoms of hypothyroidism. This book links and demonstrates other disorders and or intolerances which either can play a part or being the root cause of the thyroid disorder.
I certainly will be reviewing my diet.
A major downside to having this on audible is the lack of chapter titles making dipping in and out of subjects harder. I recommend bookmarking chapters as you listen to them and assigning titles. I may go on yo buying the book for reference.
