We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic, but despite being inundated with diet advice we are only getting fatter. We count calories and exercise regularly, yet still the pounds won't budge. Why? In this highly enjoyable and provocative book, Dr Jason Fung sets out a groundbreaking new theory: that obesity is caused by our hormones, rather than a lack of self-control. He reveals that overproduction of insulin in the body is the root cause of obesity and obesity-related illnesses including type 2 diabetes

A good book with some helpful tips. I especially enjoyed the chapters where the link and development of Insulin resisitance to obesity is described.
The narration was ok, with occasional errors in pronunciation, though that is a pretty subjective issue.
Go for the book for some practical tips to improve your well being.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address.

"Becoming" tells the story of change and how to find oneself in the process.
Narrated magnificently by Michelle Obama, it opens the door to her life and all those near to her.
Her narration of her formative years stands out from the other parts and you can really feel for her friend Suzzane.
Overall a great listen.
Give it a shot, you won't regret your decision.

From actress, comedian and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh (aka Superwoman) comes the definitive guide to being a BAWSE - a person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they've fought through it all and made it out the other side. Told in her hilarious, bold voice that's inspired over nine million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no shortcuts to success.

Now this was my first audiobook and what a blast it was. Lilly singh is charming and hillarious throughout. Seriously, she has the energy of a nuke and the charm of a brook.
The best part of this book was the narration by the author, making it feel all the more real. The "out of the blue" parts were the best and were pretty emotional. The chapters are short and concise and pretty relatable if you've read a few self help books.
But it was set apart by the extra energy and vigor of lilly.
I would definitely give this audiobook several reads because a Bawse takes time and hustle to slay.
Get a copy, guys. You'll definitely be entertained and will know so much more.
