Excellent narration of a really good story! It's been quite a few years since I saw the movie, but it's a bit different. I didn't mind the discrepancies like I do sometimes with other movie remakes of books. I'm glad I listened to the audio version.

Lots of good tips and ideas. I have a hard time with the thought of giving up certain foods like grain and dairy, but I can work on decreasing the amount I eat.

I'm thinking about planning a trip to Puerto Rico, so this short book was a good intro. It made me even more interesting in going. Good ideas of places to visit, tours to do, even sample itineraries.

I learning some good presentation tips in this book. Just wish it hadn't taken me so long to finish, as I've forgotten some of the tips. (Kindle books are a little harder for me to flip through for refreshers.)
