Knowledge is only the beginning, what we achieve from that knowledge shapes our lives.
Yes. It opens your eyes to the world of food that we live in.
This book is a must read. Anyone who cares about their health or has health issues related to poor eating habits needs to read this audio book or the hardcover book.
The narrator "Scott Brick" is very good with drawing in the listener and highlighting interesting points with his tone of voice.
Witty humor, and very interesting facts.
He just has great speaking voice. I have heard Scott perform other works, and he always does great.
It would be documentary, so I suppose the title would work.
Yes. Although the intonation tends to be a little strong, it is easy to listen.
Omnivore Dilemma. They are related in some ways. I read
No, it's a little too heavy.
Any one who is concerned about his health should read this book. There are simply too much mis-information in the food and medical industries.
Yes, this is a wonderful book that I would recommend to anyone that wants to know about food and all the "diets" that have contributed to our health today.
Eat Real Food!
I love listening and usually get in at least three hours a day. I like fiction, biographies and medical non-fiction.
I don't know that I've ever written this on this site, but I think this is a book better read than heard. At least, it's better read than heard with this narrator.
His general tone is one of sneering condescension, as he explains things that his tone seems to indicate any idiot should know. It's as if he's sprinkling vinegar, rather than honey, while attempting to convert a group of flies.
There is a lot of good information in this book. I had many questions as to the origin of the information provided. Perhaps the printed edition includes footnotes.
I have to say that the book gave me a lot to think about, and I will be adjusting my diet.
Excellent in all aspects. The reader, the author, the topic! Eyes opened wide to the benefits of eating whole food and eliminating the unhealthy processed and fast food that is basically ruining our health. Sad that our "western diet" had spread to other countries increasing obesity, heart disease and diabetes. If you want to know more read Salt, Sugar & Fat by Michael Moss.
I read omnivores dilemma, loving it so, I decided to pick this one up and give it a try. While his former was at the gym be a logical, this one focuses on a more singular scale. Beautifully written and laced with beautiful logic.
