Walk Away the Pounds

Leslie Sansone

Recommended by: Anonymous

When my doctor said I needed to start walking 3 miles a day, I wondered how in the world I would be able to do it, without buying a gym membership!  Indiana weather is not always conducive to walking long distances, and we don't have a large mall readily available (although the Knox Mall does have a nice sheltered space) .  Then a friend recommended Leslie Sansone, creator of the "Walk at Home" series of books and videos.  I checked out this book and a couple of her videos, and was hooked.  Her motto is "you can't do it wrong," and it takes all the stress and pressure out of working out.  Her style is so motivating and encouraging, and she suggests introducing the walking, diet, and water a little bit at a time.  Making small changes, gradually is very effective, and her advice is easy to understand and wonderful for beginners.


Tina Fey

Tina Fey is easily one of the funniest women in television, and is well-known for her work on "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock."  In this book, she recounts stories of growing up in Philadelphia, her beginnings in comedy as an improv player in Chicago, and her work on Saturday Night Live.  The stories are witty, self-effacing, profane, and laugh-out-loud funny; and Fey's reading on this audiobook is wonderful.  Her comic timing serves the stories well.
