I liked that this audiobook was narrated by Joel Salatin. He personalized it in a way that only an author could. This book is eye-opening for people who don't know what a mess that well-intentioned government officials have created. But it also gives practical suggestions that anyone can do to make a change.
Tis great read covers all aspects of life not just farming, and gets it right! I'm on my second listen...
Yes, Joel Salatin hits the nail on the proverbial head when it comes to the food industry.
I can't imagine anyone else doing his book justice reading it for audio.

Joel narrates his own writing so he knows what he intended to say at each point. He is an entertaining speaker and informative writer.
Along the same vein is "Farm City". Another interesting listen about transformational farming.
This is a must listen for any one that cares about energy, health, and nature!
It puts flesh on a skeleton i have been thinking about for a long time.
Straight forward honest.
No it took a couple days.
i have changed my thotz concerning food after reading this book. i will be growing some of my own and finding others who can help me fill in the blanks. Thanx Joel
Great listen, comical and scary at the same time!
I love the author's sense of humor when he talks about the farm. I guess what happend on the farm, stays on the farm!
He is my favorite character.
If you are interested in what the big hitters are doing with your groceries and how they are getting you to buy their products, this book is a must listen too!
Joel Salatin is a great writer and performer. I love that he narrated the book himself. Joel leads the life I wish I could have, even though I do in small ways. He also brings the issues of the lives that most of us lead and the food that most of us consume into sharp relief. He brings humanity to farming and, by contrast, makes the reader question how animals are raised and how the rest of their food is raised. The more of us who are aware, the sooner the tide will turn in the food industry. We all should begin to follow his recommendations on taking responsibility for how we source our own food.
It ranks at the top of the pile.
This book has no peer. I've never read anything similar to it.
I believe this book should be a must read for most Americans.
