great read/listen. this will extend your understanding of what/how/why we eat. i hope he keeps these books coming and continues to expose the truth! pollan for president--or at least secretary of agriculture!!!
YES! I WOULD EVEN RECOMMEND IT TO AN ENEMY! THIS IS AS CURRENT TODAY AS WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN 50 YEARS AGO. VERY SCARY TO THINK SHE WAS WRITING AS MUCH FOR TODAY'S POLITICAL CLIMATE AS WHEN IT WAS PUBLISHED. WAKE UP PEOPLE AND THINK ABOUT WHAT WE ARE ALLOWING THOSE WHO "CARE" FOR US TO DO TO US IN THE NAME OF "JUSTICE FOR ALL," "PEACE," AND "EQUALITY." IF YOU FIND THIS BOOK UNSETTLING, THAT IS GOOD. IT SHOULD SCARE YOU INTO ACTION!
2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY; ANIMAL FARM--BUT A.S. IS MUCH MORE TIMELY TO TODAY.
DON'T KNOW. NEVER READ IT TO COMPARE AUDIO VERSION.
THEY WERE ALL NECESSARY TO THE STORY, SO NO FAVORITES.
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK--IT'S LONG, AND SLOW TO START, BUT STICK WITH IT AND YOU WILL BE TOTALLY BOWLED OVER BY THE SIMILARITIES IN TODAY'S POLITICS.
If you are concerned about your health, READ THIS BOOK! Urge all the members of your family, your friends, your co-workers to read it. It may save your life or at least make it last longer and be more enjoyable to live.
the characters are wonderful. the story is wonderful. i don't enjoy all her books-my favorite was animal, vegetable, miracle, because i, too, live in the boonies and grow my food, and live by the seasons. but this one was special. hopefully she will write a sequel so we know what happened next!!
so sad society does not follow these high standards. every pre-teen should read this--after the parents do!
loved animal, vegetable, miracle, but this one was an effort to listen to.
this book was recommended to me by my daughter who was concerned about my health--i HAD (notice past tense!!) all sorts of medical issues which were caused/exacerbated by my lousy life-style. this book turned my life around--this itty-bitty, crappy-named book!! grab your kleenex and read/listen when you can concentrate!! you won't believe you have been so stupid and so blind to what is going on with your food, your life!! this is another book that i give/recommend to EVERYONE! please DO NOT LET THE TITLE and the few very crude comments/references TURN YOU OFF! this is a book with a message everyone should hear. and mothers--do your daughters a favor (and vice-versa!!)--encourage them to read this book.
as all the outlander series books, this is wonderful and such a pleasure to listen to.
Ok, but there are probably better ones out there about her.
bought this because i love animals and my daughter has two bostons!! sweet book, a bit sad, a bit slow, but ok.
great listen for people who really don't have a clue what they are consuming as "food" and why they choose and why their choice of food is actually a "vote" for bad or good government and health. mandatory reading for everyone!
