    Here, the man who started the "food revolution" with the million-plus-selling Diet for a New America, boldly posits that, collectively, our personal diet can save ourselves and the world. If, according to chaos theory, the beating of a butterfly's wing can cause a hurricane in another part of the world, try this out for chaotic cause and effect: monarch butterflies are dying in droves due to genetically-engineered corn growing in the Midwest. There is also a direct correlation between the Big Mac in your hand and the mile-wide river now running across the North Pole.

    Where does The Food Revolution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks at the top 3.


    What other book might you compare The Food Revolution to and why?

    It works effectively as a precursor or a follow up to the The China Study by T. Collin Campbell.


    What does John Robbins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Robbins brings more inflection and passion to his written words.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can and has changed lives for the better. There is so much going on in the food industry that the average person is not aware of. Robbins doesn't throw out glittering generalites. In the printed book, he presents his information and backs it with scientific findings from an exhaustive number of footnotes. This is important to note since you don't realize this just from the audio book alone. The information is solid and thankfully he is helping to heal the planet, one reader at a time.

    Where does Edgar Cayce on the Millennium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story line was fine and quite enchanting. The problem I had was with the recording of the narrator's voice. She did a fine job, however the whole thing sounded as though it was recorded off of a poorly connected cell phone.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part was that this information was a good refresher for Cayce fans as well as a good primer for those just getting to know about his work.


    What three words best describe Alyssa Bresnahan’s voice?

    Soothing, emotive, well-intoned
