    In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen. Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements - fire, water, air, and earth - to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. In the course of his journey, he discovers that the cook occupies a special place in the world....

    Matt says: "Michael Pollan Fans Will Love It."
    "Started right up again..."

    FIRE WATER AIR


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cooked?

    This book inspired me to try out some bread making. It will for you too!


    What about Michael Pollan’s performance did you like?

    Fantastic narration by the author. His previous narrator was a little snotty...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I would rewind chapters just to listen to them again.

    (2050)

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Reney says: "Be careful with logical leaps"
    "Malcolm Gladwell is a fantastic storyteller."

    What other book might you compare Blink to and why?

    Tipping Point is another fantastic read. Looking forward to listening to it now.


    What about Malcolm Gladwell’s performance did you like?

    He is a fantastic storyteller, I am so glad he read his own book for this audiobook. He has a way of explaining sometimes complicated concepts.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Judge this movie by its cover.
