    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Stephen Redding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "Don't waste your time/money"
    Overall

    This book should have been about a third as long as it is. I bought the book because I thought it would be interesting and informative. Once you get past the history and processing of corn.......... (which really is all this book has that is even remotely intriguing) it is a politacal diatribe read by a nauseatingly whiny narrator that drags on and on for the last 10 hours of the book. It is so bad that at one point I swore if I ever heard the narrator say the word "Rumen" again I would hunt him down and force feed him the stupid book. I wish audible would take it back and credit me the wasted purchase.
