Great book however, the chapters that elaborate on the authors cooking techniques and mushroom adventures tempted me to stop listening. All content besides the above was great.
I'm actually writing this review upon doing some library cleanup on my account. It has been about 30 days since I finished it, and I don't remember most of it. It was not nearly as engaging as I had hoped for it to be. If this kind of content fascinates you, then you will likely enjoy it. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend.
This book changed the way I think and feel about the food on my plate. It isn't a particularly enjoyable read, Pollan is a bit didactic at times, but the narrative string is there enough to follow through as you learn about the industrial food change, organic and beyond organic foods, and even hunting and gathering (although in retrospect I might have stopped reading before that last chapter).
My doctor encouraged me to get this book, so it took some time before I picked it up. Now I am the one recommending the book. If you have taken the time to get read this then just get it. You will not regret the decision.
This book was wonderful. It took me nearly 4 months to finish because I had to pause to digest the the information given regularly. I have begun to think differently about the food that I eat and what it means to be responsible about my food. I loved it!
I loved everything about this thought provoking book. It has changed the way I look at all the food I put I my mouth.
Yes, its education yet entertaining, enlightening, and just good. There are some slow parts but still great book. It could also be the narrator that makes it feel slow to me at parts.
Yes, sometimes i feel like he should get more action into his voice, he was very level paced and voiced the whole time so its just felt slow in certain areas
All of it, just and eye opening book. Its changed my perception on a lot of things
I plan on reading the rest of his books over time!
The book could have been half the size if it weren't for a lot of unnecessary details.
The first half was definitely more interesting and scientific.
I enjoyed the first half of the book and couldn't wait till next chapter came to listen to.
