What Einstein told his cook is a great book if you have any background in science and would like to bridge some (or a lot) of gaps to cooking. Even if you don't have a big background in science or chemistry, I believe if you're some what intelligible you can still pick up on a lot of whats covered and comprehend it (though, you may have to look a few things up depending on your background). It is very interesting and it helps you avoid common techniques or procedures that are taught and used in the kitchen frequently which are almost completely baseless which shows the lack of education and knowledge some cooks actually have of cooking.
You don't have to have taken organic chemistry to think this book is great, but if you do have a background in chemistry/basic science you will probably really enjoy this book. Even if you don't have a background, the author is good about keeping it on a simple level, and explains concepts before discussing them further.
I'm just getting into cooking regularly and have found that this should be an essential read/listen for any one that enjoys or is beginning to enjoy cooking.
top of the list. if you think you have ADD, know people that do (or thinking you know people that do) or just understand it in general you should give a listen.
Narrated very well.
I have never read the printed version, so i would not know. But this is narrated very well, very thorough without hanging up on irrelevant details that don't pertain to the story. Details are presented in an easy to listen format, as well as explaining background information. great listen for any one
I don't read/listen to many politically central or related books, but this one stuck out. With a background in industry and business some examples used i felt i could side either way, but the thing that sets this book apart from other 'stronger one-sided opinions' is the great ways the author goes in giving detailed back ground knowledge and history, most of which we would otherwise not pay attention to.
I have not, but after this I may.
This book will potentially make you angry. Not at the author or the book, but the context and information of the book. Especially that you see the same thing occurring, RIGHT NOW. and you almost feel useless. But knowledge is power, and we should probably learn as much as we can before its banned too.
This book definitely made a positive impact in the way I live my life in that I more actively shop/purchase from companies that are innovative, treat their customers AND employees like people, not just a means to increase their stock price.
Eating the Dinosaur is worth the listen or read, but is not the best Klosterman book to start with. So if its your first, I would go with Killing yourself to Live. If you like pop culture, sports, or dry/witty humor you will probably like this.
