If you've ever read any book on health or fitness, this is nothing new.
on February 17, 2012
There's just no new information in this book. I could spend 20 minutes looking at Tumblr or another user generated content site and see everything this book has to offer. The "meal plan" is basically "eat more veggies and less simple carbs." I bought this book for realistic ideas for how to work more exercise into an average 9-5 day, but most of this is similar to a workout infographic. There's no deeper information about the exercises or the science behind the plan.
Also, the book shows Ms. Austin performing squats in what appear to be stiletto heels.
This isn't a bad book, I just think it's more the kind of thing you give away for free to promote a more in-depth product. If you're an absolute beginner to getting into a healthy lifestyle and losing weight, this would be an awesome starter guide, but if you already know a decent amount about the topic, you won't find it useful.
