michael pollan was brilliant as usual; i expected as much and was even intrigued as the book went on!! however the narrator was awful for this book. he was strangely dramatic for a non-fiction book, not a good fit.
Michael Pollan has some very good information in this book, and Scott Brick portrays it very well in the reading. Michael backs up his information with studies (but then who doesn't) but it makes you look at the food you are eating in a different light. I highly recommend this book.
By not being afraid to question the science behind food research and addressing the business of food production, Pollan presents a solid, common sense approach to eating healthy and the state of food in our culture. The narration of this book, however, intoned too much personal opinion, even sarcasm, for non-fiction work. For me, the narrator undermined the integrity of the book which is not at all prevalent in its written form.
Put together the answers I have read a million books to find about health and nutrition.
Good info, good ideas, great research. Pollan is brilliant.
The narrator read this like it was a novel of some sort. He sounded sarcastic and trite at times.

No, Its not that I disagreed with him but...it got very boring and lacking of facts.
Don't think I will, I might ask for a refund for this book.
His style is a bit better for fiction than non fiction.
I'm going to be honest...listening to this book is punishment. The narration makes listening unbearable.
