Though the author's reading will sound too cheery to some, her optimism is backed up by one of the most complete approaches to fitness on audio. Going beyond talking about belly fat and inactivity, she explains the facets of life that influence these conditions--mind, mouth, muscle, money, and macrocosm (our relationship with our surroundings). Peeke has an astute understanding of how people change and the many ways we resist change--especially by denying symptoms and numbing ourselves with addictive behavior or withdrawal from friends. There is a lot of information here, including many clever lists and mental techniques, and it includes impressive printouts of assessment, exercises, and diet suggestions. The author's confident tone holds it all together and keeps it from being overwhelming. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
