"Amazing book"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you already know of James, and enjoy his advice and banter, then you'll enjoy his book. I definitely read it in his voice. Some great information and clearly he cares about the content. Give it a go :)

I loved this book so much I've bought one for my Mum. She'll love it as much as I do, and she won't have to give her copy back.

"Witty charming and smart. Gives you the tools to change your own"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is not a diet book, it's in the title, but let's repeat it again – THIS IS NOT A DIET BOOK. This book is for EVERYONE. This is much more than a lifestyle book or ‘self help’, James Smith has truly created something that is so diverse it just ‘fits’ into all sections of life.

It is well written, clever and FUNNY, be prepared to be fully absorbed start to finish, as James sneakily throws in so many facts and topics of interest so not one person could walk away not having learnt something new that will truly benefit them and those around them.

Don't get (too) caught up on the pretty face, charm, occasional swearing or assumption that this book is for those wanting to get fit or lose fat. James Smith is a no-nonense educator first and foremost, the epitome of doing the hard work, questioning the norm, being passionate and learning the tools to change your own life.

Not A Diet Book takes the noise and confusion out of the vast overpopulation of opinions, pseudoscience, and as he puts it, “blue tick gravitas” surrounding common questions in the health and lifestyle industry. From questioning the science behind hot topics, to discussing the risks of social media influence, debating scientific literature and how results happen, improving your sleep habits, and above all else – enjoying your own life!

Get one, even get a spare so you can share it far and wide. If you're not sold yet, then buy it just for the fantastic one liners, quotes and stories with an smart, edgy prose.

I was hooked by the end of the first chapter, and by the end of the book I feel like I've just had a long chat with a good friend that has my best interests at heart. No discount codes, no ‘6 minute workout’, no influencer #ad post.

This is the real deal, and James, where's the sequel-

"Absolutely life changing"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've been following james for a while now and been in his academy for the last few months. This man gets the point across. This book will educate everyone that picks it up and legitimately change their way of approaching food, exercise, sleep, career and relationships to just name a few. You will not regret buying this book.
