    Throughout history, food has acted as a catalyst of social change, political organization, geopolitical competition, industrial development, military conflict, and economic expansion. An Edible History of Humanity is a pithy, entertaining account of how a series of changes---caused, enabled, or influenced by food---has helped to shape and transform societies around the world.

    Eric says: "A big heaping feast of history"
    "Great book about cultivation of food"

    What made the experience of listening to An Edible History of Humanity the most enjoyable?

    The sweep and span of this book is interesting and it's really captures everything in a nutshell. For example the most people think of farming as natural when actually farming is a technology and without farming humanity as we know would be very different. If farming is a technology and it is, then why is there such outrage over Bioengineering of crops when humans have been doing it since the very beginning of farming. These are some of the most important take aways and thoughts I have absorbed from this audio book.
