Michael Pollan is brilliant. Listening is more convenient for me plus I enjoy the aspect of live theater over my headphones~~ if you have a good reader. Scott Brick does a fine job. Watch Michael Pollan speaking on a YouTube clip and you will immediately understand that this man is exceptional. He courageously takes on the journey of our food in the form of the history of wheat to, and I could NOT do this- engaging himself thru the entire process of getting that chicken on your plate: the whole disgusting process. His writing saves us all and it is WELL worth the journey. I will listen to his other books. I trust his integrity in his choice of expression- no matter what. If he can question, interview and wade in it, I most certainly have the heart to be enlightened by his process. Thanks, Michael Pollan!
Mr Pollan's research is stunning. His expression of his findings is poetic no matter what the subject being covered. I, frankly, was not sure that I could actually make it from jacket cover to epilogue as I knew some of what was going to covered. This book was only brilliant.
Joel Salatin is a mid-western farmer. Michael Pollan included Mr Salatin's WHOLE agricultural process in a way that was engaging. Sustainability is a possibility. Proven here.
It is a great challenge to have the courage to look at the history of what is on our dinner plate or breakfast menu. We are so disconnected from the process of what we eat and where it comes from that it confronting the actual subject of Holistic Nutrition seems very daunting. We are disconnected from the awareness that there are more neurons in our brain than stars in the universe and the miracle that we are as physical bodies is a REAL MIRACLE. Let this book assist you by being an extraordinary 'listen' as an invitation to feel your heartbeat and breath!
