The writer was knowledgeable and touched on a lot of great topics, but there was way too much focus on her experiences with spinning classes.
I can't believe this is an abridged version, the entire point of her book could have been summed up in one CD at the very most. She spends a lot of time taking about how much she LOVES working out and about how she LOVES spinning with the occassional fact about exercise. But what if you don't like exercise..what then? She also spends a lot of time name dropping as if the reader is supposed to be impressed with these people she's spoken to. The basic premise of the book is don't trust anything you hear about exercise. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
