Would you listen to The TB12 Method again? Why?
To find the PDF, go into your Library (via the web) and next to the title, there will be a 'PDF' link. For further instructions, do a quick google search 'audible pdf download'. I saw everyone was having trouble finding it so I'm using my review to help :) love the book.

There have been a number of negative reviews about this book (i.e. ghost written, lack of science, personal commercial for TB12 products). I am the father of pro athletes and was involved in coaching. I bought the book because I am interested in what makes great athletes i.e.Tom Brady tick. The book did not disappoint.
Brady seems to be off the charts in everything he does. The water he uses to hydrate, the food he uses for fuel, the special pajamas he sleeps in, and of coarse, his pliability workouts. While he pushes TB12 products in the book, he does not say you need to follow his workout or use his products or eat exactly what he eats. He does lay out, in simple language and in an easy to follow pdf, basics that you can follow using equipment and foam rollers available at most gyms or at a low cost. The same basics he has used over the years to accomplish what he has achieved as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL.
I decided to put theory to the test and follow the TB12 method for a month, to see what would happen. I was not as strict as Brady in what I did. For example I did not come close to his discipline in what I ate, My pliability routine was foam rollers vs. deep massage, I substituted a run and a personal workout for his bands, did not spend the 4 hours a day in the gym that he spends in the off season and no special pajamas. Result 4 weeks later: eliminated nagging back, shoulder and knee pain I was having, dropped 8 pounds, feel healthier and more alert. My average 5k run training speed (I'm still pretty slow) increased by 20%. I intend to reread several chapters in the book and add some of the things Brady recommended that I didn't implement over the test month.
A lot of Brady's regimen is not new. What he does do in this book is put everything together in an easy to read manual. I gave it a 5 star rating and have to say thanks to Brady for publishing this book, ghost written or not. Books like this, from athletes who have walked the walk, are hard to find, It definitely has the potential to be a life/training changer.
