    Novella Carpenter loves cities - the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways.

    Story
    If you could sum up Farm City in three words, what would they be?

    This lady is so strong willed, ready to take on anything for her tiny farm, and does a great job. I really enjoyed her animal antics, her with the pigs. and just funny ways of talking on and solving PROBLEMS that came up with her animals . I listened to it two times and will listen to it again, it is very refreshing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Her attitude about the people in her neighborhood.the way she loves her animals and the attitude when an animal has to be taken for food shows a great attitude and the follow through herself is statement to her character, I have a small farm and I totally understood her feelings
    .


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    Karen is anawesome she was my favorite, but hubby went along easy to whatever she whants


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I did that. watng for more books from every year the adventure continues


    Any additional comments?

    Can be listen to many times , it's fun.

  • Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil

    For millennia, fresh olive oil has been a necessity - for food, medicine, beauty, and religion. Today's researchers continue to confirm the remarkable, life-giving properties of true extra-virgin, and "extra-virgin Italian" has become the highest standard of quality. But what if this symbol of purity has become deeply corrupt?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Extra Virginity to be better than the print version?

    Audio is good everyone should hear this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very informative book. I loved the history but I did have a sad reaction to this book. I lost trust in the fact that no matter the integrity of generations, it can all be ruined by greed of a few.

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

  • Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

    Story
    (1477)

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Stacey says: "The program works, but the listen is technical"
    "50 pounds loss since I read this book."

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A moving moment for me was when I realized that just by counting to 20 this diet would be a way to get rid of processed food, milk hormones, and focus on healthy food. I was suprised how easy it was to walk away from carbs. The 50 pound weight loss was a breeze after a lifetime of misery on every other diet in the world. I feel so much better than before reading this book. Thankyou Mr. Davis
