  • Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

    Story

    What, really, we are fat because we don't eat enough meat? Do you really believe this?
    Sadly people are hungry to hear good news about their bad habits. The author sounds like an Adkins devotee. I regret spending a credit on this book.

  • Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

    Story
    (504)

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Story

    I read the reviews before I spent my precious credit on this book. It had mixed reviews, but I thought I would be enlightened by the history. I read a review that complained about the narrator but ignored it and purchased it anyway. I really should have listened. The narrator, Scott Brick, is extremely annoying. He uses his voice to lead you to conclusions. It is difficult to get passed his voice when he used it to punctuate his bias. Granted much of what goes on in the plural families is disgusting and you grieve for the children’s abuse, but I want to draw my own conclusions. As a precaution, see if you can have a sample reading before you purchase the audio book, because who reads the book really makes a difference. This is unfortunately something I learned the hard way.
