    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Kimberly says: "Good book, but read The Omnivore's Dilemma first"
    "Read it, don't listen to it"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Unfortunately, the narrator does an injustice not only to the topic, but to Michael Pollan's hard work and valuable story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    I have heard Michael Pollan speak. I would have much preferred to hear this work in his own words, voice, tone and inflection vs. those of an overly dramatic, arrogant sounding orator. Scott Brick's work is much more suited to the likes of Pillars of the Earth or something of that nature. His tone was not conversational enough or even academic enough to allow me to hear the content - instead all I heard was his ill placed, over- acted drama.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration and disappointmnet - solely due to the narration.
