    Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood - facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf - his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This takes off from the Righteous Porkchop by Nicolette Hahn.

    A must read for everyone who would like to know the truth about animal FACTORY farming. Whether one chooses to be a vegetarian after listening to this or simply reduces one's consumption of meat is of another matter. To be inform is a worthy goal of itself.

  • Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know

    Twenty four classic fairy tales compiled in 1905 by Hamilton Wright Mabie, this enchanting book isn't your Disney classic. Little Red Riding Hood does get eaten by the Big Bad Wolf, but in most cases the princes and princesses go on to live long and happy lives and the wicked step mothers get their just dues.

    Football season becomes a time of realization that life's most important victories are won off the field. A star running back with much to learn, a younger player with much to give, and a woman with a heart for underprivileged kids - all three are thrown together into a time of self-discovery and a new awareness of the things that matter most.

    Heather says: "Kingsbury Fan"
    "Too simplistic"
    Overall

    The flow of the story is unreal sometimes. I find it exasperating to listen on some portion of the book. People just doesn't really think the way the characters in the stories think. But it's a nice story. Just wish it could have been written with a little bit more depth.

  • 1001 Ways to Energize Employees

    You may have heard the terms "open-book management", "empowerment", "continuous improvement", "participatory management", and "self-directed work teams". Managers use all of these activities to help energize employees by making them an integral part of the team. Bob Nelson has taken the most useful elements of these concepts, and presented them in a highly accessible and usable way.

    "Poorly read book"
    Overall

    This book is poorly read by the author.
    Though the book is quite old, the content of the book is quite informative.
