This was pretty repetitive overall. A lot of ideas were mentioned over and over again. The saving grace of the book was the investigative journalism. There is some interesting information about processed food companies here but you have to get through the fluff.
I think that my reaction of "Man, those guys are AWESOME! I wish I was in the food creating industry!" is not the one that the author was going for.
Great book, excellent narration, and man I have been drinking a lot of Pepsi since starting this book.
I believe over 90% of readers will not get through 50% of this book
I made a point to listen to ALL of it, just information without any summaries and a lot of repeat with similar food items that should be kept in order and with more of the writers conclusions along the way
Way too long without a punch or two :)
Yes. I would listen again much for the same reason one would listen to anything again - go absorb more the second time. The text was so laden with facts and events that it would be worth a second listen.
I think that the looks into executive meetings between multiple food companies were most enticing and informative.
This is a nonfiction text.
The Illusion of Choice.
While the information is well researched and very interesting, the style of reading makes it difficult to tolerate. Nonfiction doesn't require drama. Narration should not distract. I had to buy the hard copy to finish.
Probably. With a voice that it interesting to listen to no matter what they are saying.
2 ½ hours in and absolutely no new information and nothing surprising apart from the names of some people. Could be summarized in about 2 paragraphs. Narrator seems to try to speak slower to drag it on (more hours pay more???). Hoping it will get better and not make me regret the loss of my credit....
this info will make you feel you have duped most of your life by both the government--who doesn't care a bit about YOU and ME--and the big companies--who are only in it for the $. no one cares about your health when it comes down to the dollars in your bank accounts, so read, read, read and learn what is healthy and what isn't. nothing that is manufactured and comes in a package is healthy!!
Yes its very interesting well resurched and well read
Realizing the people I treusted could not be trusted
The Cold hard truth about our food and the people who make it.
I think it need to be given more publicity or given out free
There isn't much I didn't know either from information or common sense. However, the case is strongly made and documented - and the most telling testimony, I think, is that the book has convinced me to start moving away from processed foods and cutting severely on red meat.
While the number of books demonizing the food industry grows larger every year, this one deserves a place very near the top. Moss just lays out the economic and human drivers behind the fundamental alteration in the food chain. There is just a wealth of fascinating information, and human interest stories.
But then there's Scott Brick. Why does every sentence have to sound like a roller coaster? It wears you out after a while. Luckily, this is a Whispersync for Voice book, so I can consume most of it on my Kindle.
