The audio version ofers a layer of depth unseen, or better yet unheard, in the print version. Standage's word jump to life with Wilson's naration as each story of the long history of food unfolds.
Comprehensive for the most part allows me as a listener to understand the story a lot more than simply reading it.
This book for the most part made me hungry everytime I read it passed midnight. But what most suprised me is how pivital food is to various aspects of our world. I especially love how Standage broke the book into sections which focused on foods key issues. Like how farming came about to how food let to the fall of Communist Soviet Union.
Great read, especially since we all love food. This provide one of the best backgrounds of history around food to explain the mandane to extraordinary. Bon appetit!
