Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes, Stacey really should have recorded the whole book. Disappointing she didn't do this.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I was eager to get this book on Audible after I saw Stacey Griffith on GMA. After listening to Stacey read the introduction I was even more excited. She was reading in first-person, briefly sharing her story, experiences and how (she) this book would be as inspiring and motivating as if we were in one of her classes. I believed her. I workout and have worked with trainers... Stacey was upbeat and real (like you're having a conversation with her) as she described the outline of the book and what to expect. What a HUGE disappointment when Chapter 1 the narrator switches to someone who sounds like a librarian reading a story... not at all motivational or inspiring. I skipped ahead to each chapter to see if it changes back to Stacey... nope. Darn it! Really hard to imagine this is Stacey's story listening to this narrators voice. Ugh. What's ironic is that I listen to books while I run...I don't have much free time to read books (love Audible) but this narrators voice (reading this book) makes me want to take a nap.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Stacey narrating her own story would inspire me to continue listening. She is very believable in the introduction. So disappointing.
Would you be willing to try another one of Stacey Griffith and Gabra Zackman ’s performances?
I don't think Gabra Zackman should be narrating a motivational fitness based book. Her voice is pleasant if you are listening to a storybook. Her voice does not match this genre.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Buy the actual book if you have time to read it... not the Audible. If I get to the actual book I would change the "story + overall" rating. Listening I can't get that far...
