I have listened to this book several times and undoubtedly will again. Joel comes across as very real and his heartfelt coming to terms with issues that affect all of us should resonate with everyone, regardless of his or her religious beliefs. Joel briefly discusses his beliefs without making any judgments. The fact of the matter is, if you like food, if you value your health, you MUST read Joel Salatin!!
Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, which is also excellent, introduces the reader to Joel Salatin and what he does. Pollan does not bring religion to the table, but provides much food for thought as to where our food comes from and how healthy or unhealthy it is.
No. As far as I know, this is the only audio book he has done. I wish he would do the other books he has written in audio as well. I am in the process of buying his books one by one.
I laughed at many of the stories Joel tells. He is a gifted communicator and paints vivid word pictures.
I knew of Joel Salatin before I read Michael Pollan, as he is well-known in magazines like Mother Earth News, Backwoods Home, and Grit, etc. However, I was not aware that he calls himself a conservative Libertarian or that he was a Christian. After listening to his book I think we all should hear what he has to say and take action. We are, after all, responsible for our own health and lives.
The story is long, but worth wading through. It is very thought provoking. Parts could have been taken directly from modern headlines.
I loved John Galt for his quiet courage.
The narrator was excellent and played all the parts well!
