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.
Probably not, I would rather read it than hear this reader.
With a different reader this book would sound as brilliant as it is, that is the only place it falls short.
Pollan writes a very convincing case for the locovore movement and speaks plain sense from personal experience without being preachy.
The topic of the book is well-trodden ground, so I went in with fairly low expecations. But Pollan's willingness to dig in and get his hands dirty made for a great tale that brought a lot of fresh insights to the topic of food sources. The book is filled with interesting characters and stories of people who are very passionate about food and the politics that surround it.
The read was excellent. It was easy on the ear and a pleasure to listen to.
The performance sounded a bit like a computer, but the story was so intriguing it keeps you interested the whole way.
How informative it was.
The information given without being "preachy" made this book excellent.
The author weaves together almost all aspects of 21st century food production.
If I had a long enough trip I would have.
Excellent. Informative. Insightful.
