    Story
    (402)

    From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view, life in the 21st century just ain't normal. In Folks, This Ain't Normal, he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love.

    Story
    Would you listen to Folks, This Ain't Normal again? Why?

    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!!


    What other book might you compare Folks, This Ain't Normal to and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Joel Salatin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


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

    I laughed at many of the stories Joel tells. He is a gifted communicator and paints vivid word pictures.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    Story
    (3604)

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story is long, but worth wading through. It is very thought provoking. Parts could have been taken directly from modern headlines.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved John Galt for his quiet courage.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was excellent and played all the parts well!
