I am man who likes to learn either by reading or listening. There are so many good books it is hard to pick just one. I love this site!
this book was full of excellent information and wonderful anecdotes. it was very interesting and easy to listen to. I myself listened to it twice and the second time was better than the first. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know why they cannot stop eating something.
Great book! Well researched and highly recommended. Author interviews vast numbers of insiders in the food industry and come away with a complete view of processed food in the US
I would not only recommend it but suggest it.
Kept me very interested.
yes, very much.
the truth behind the shelves
I am totally honored to have listened to the book. I loved it so much I am buying the paperback and give it as gifts.
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.
50 something female, not a bibliophile by any stretch of the imagination. Don't have time to sit. I love history and biographies.
I have known about marketing practices and chemicals in processed foods but I didn't realize how much the government influences food production. The connection from subsidizing cattle and dairy producers to hiding cheese in processed foods was interesting.
I have started listening to audiobooks while walking the dog, and sometimes it's easy to get distracted, but the performance and pacing was so good that that didn't happen.
I'm a very health conscious person so I knew some of the things in the book already but listening to it in a short time is a bit overwhelming. It's another thing horribly wrong with the U.S. and the west but hopefully we are on the way to a health revolution. Once people start eating better they do have a hard time going back to bad for you foods, but it needs to happen in the community at large or the peer pressure to eat junk can be overpowering.
If you're looking for more reasons to eat healthy or like a good true conspiracy theory kind of book, check this out!
