Narrator Jonathan Todd Ross's breezy performance makes this survey of weight-loss programs as fun to hear as it is enlightening. His friendly tone and obvious delight with the material make him sound exactly as we would expect the author to sound if he were reading this entertaining guide. The contradictory nature of the programs Barry Estabrook surveyed is fascinating: Avoiding fats, avoiding carbs, restricting calories, fasting, joining social support groups like Weight Watchers are among the methods described. His observations of all these approaches are both accessible and full of clever insights, not just about the diets but also about the proselytizers who promote them. This audio is a delightful way to learn the scientific truth about what actually works. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
