What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A clear and concise plan to enable me to make changes to my physiology and thinking when required.
What could Nick Hall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I would have like to feel that I have a relatively easy plan to follow that would allow me to change my physiology as required but this was lost in the explanations. A summary at the end of the book would have been helpful.
What three words best describe Nick Hall’s voice?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
On balance I have to say I am disappointed with this book. I do not feel that I am now any nearer doing what I want to do, if that makes sense. So I am rather disappointed. There were interesting scientific explanations about physiology which I suppose, in fairness, does shed light on why we don't do what we want but I was hoping for something more to take away
Any additional comments?
I do not feel the book was well organised as it seemed to jump from one area to another and back again.

It's like listening to a seminar not an audiobook. You feel like someone just pressed record illegally and now you've stumbled across it. Quality is that bad. He drags on and on about nothing. Lots of filler stories. I wouldn't recommend this at all.

This book is fascinating, yet not what I was expecting. Most of it is on nutrition and his the brain / body works, which was interesting to me but only because I am in healthcare. There was good ideas on beliefs, visualization, etc. However, the interview at the end was horrible. The "interviewer", some big-wig at Nightingale, had the most insincere candor and was obviously not there for the interview, and was a huge insult to our intelligence. Otherwise, a good listen.

What disappointed you about I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??
This is a 10-hour compilation of physiology/pathophysiology medical lectures. Seriously, 50 minutes of every hour is nothing but straight physiology and pathophysiology. And he doesn’t just graze the subject either he goes very deep into the subject passing multiple layers that will completely lose the average listener. The other 10 minutes actually has to do with what the title suggests.
Even being a medical professional myself I quickly became annoyed and wanted him to get to the point instead of describing every minute detail of the anabolic/catabolic response, neurological pathway, and the cellular chemical responses of the brain etc.
Honestly I felt a little conned when I found out this wasn’t an audio book but was just a bunch of lectures he compiled from speaking at various events. Sometimes he even asks questions to the audience and then you have to listen to some random person’s question/response. He even repeats himself too and uses the same examples from a previous lecture you listened too 2 hours prior.
Sure there are a few gems here and there but after the 1st hour I found myself wishing I purchased something else.
Would you ever listen to anything by Nick Hall again?
