The in depth research he seemed to do and the wealth of information on how insulin and other factors work in the body. I think I learned a lot from just listening to that if nothing else.
How much it taught me about cholesterol, trigylcerides, AGE's and a host of other terms that I had only heard of, but now feel like, for a layman, I have a decent grasp of how they work.
I was amazed at how he managed to emphasize and punctuate every sentence so well, as if he knew exactly what Gary Taubes was trying to say. It can't be easy to do with such dense, technical verbiage. His voice was easy to listen to and I was definitely impressed.
No, although there were certainly some things that Gary Taubes said that I didn't agree with or found unnecessary to include because they weakened his argument. Particularly, I was disappointed with the third of the 3 sections, because unlike the first two, it seemed to be much less about dissecting the existing the science and much more about him extrapolating to all manner of ends what else the insulin response in the body might be responsible for, some of which seemed dubious.
