I bought my copy of Fiber Fueled from Audible, UK. I listened to the audio book at bedtime and the narrator of Fiber Fueled lulled me off to slumber with lots of fascinating information including what foods were amazing for gut health.
Although I have given the book a second and third listen while I was more awake, as I was cooking dinner!
