as a cook I really see what this book is about. no one should be fooled to think the chicken from one establishment doesn't come out of the same truck as any other. as a restaurant it is hard to get food unless the purchaser or owner finds it themselves and then is able to crunch the numbers and put it on the menu which means a lot of logistics. but if the customer doesn't want it then a lot of loss. would be great to cook amazing things, but I also want to pay my powerbill and allow my children not live in poverty either.
Get educated and learn to cook! great book and great ideas. if you care about your health this book is the reality you need
I'm very interested in Western and my own consumptive practices. Also, I think it's much better to be informed then to be ignorant. The author provided an excellent explanation of what to eat and how to eat it, especially for those living in the West and consuming a Western diet.
It was a thought-provoking and attention-grabbing read. I recommended it to anyone who would listen, especially those who inquired. If taken seriously and honestly, the practice of the book's contents could greatly transform one's health for the better!
If I had the time, I would have preferred the print version just because of the narrator.
I really appreciated all the scientifically backed information that is presented in an understandable way without getting so deep into the science to lose the flow of the book.
No, the narrator did a fine job if he was reading Shakespeare or a gossip column. His emphasis on words made a well written book about something as every day as food seem really pretentious and stuffy.
Great book, really helps concrete the history of how the western diet was incrementally developed, where we went wrong, and how we can rationally eat to avoid the negative health effects. All while keeping eating a fun and fulfilling activity.
Great information from Michael Pollan, as usual, but the narration can be a bit too dramatic for the subject matter. Overall, great book!
motivated me to go to a farmers market and to start spending more time cooking and enjoying my food. I need to be the example for my son and change!
