I like that she takes examples from the from grocery store boxed items and trys to show how they could be made more simply, cheaply at home without all the chemicals. I also liked the fact that she gives you some basic starting points for getting started at home cooking. This book would be best for those just starting out in the kitchen or those of us who have been stuck in a rut and have resorted to eating more processed foods. Overall, I enjoyed this book and as a health coach will recommend it to many of my clients to help them get started in the kitchen.
Although I like this narrators voice, there were several places where either the editing was chopped or she didn't pronouce the word properly. These are very minor, but I did notice them and usually replayed it just to make sure I was hearing her properly.
Unfortunately, she doesn't give all the recipies, which would be out of scope for this book. However, for the recipes she does give, a PDF companion would have been very helpful. Without it your stuck writing down all the recipes as she gives them or buying the book.
I was so looking forward to a continuation of The Passage, instead I got a confusing story that only added more characters. For example, whatever happened to the reading of the book of Sarah. In the Passage it's made to seem as if Sarah is a major reason that people survived. From reading the Twelve, I just didn't get that and there was no further mention of the book of Sarah.
It certainly won't be the next book in this trilogy. The Passage was good and held a lot of promise. The Twelve was just a waste of time.
I always enjoy Scott Brick, and for this book, I think it's the only reason I was able to finish it.
All of the scenes with Lish. Where was that story line going anyway?
I really wanted to like this book! It had so much potential, instead is was just a rambling, confusing tale, that would have been better off not written.
I was fascinated by his story. Honestly, I thought I knew at least the basics about Steve Jobs. Wow, I was wrong and way, way off! His public persona and the way he was in business were totally different. Steve was actually quite a jerk, and that's putting it nicely.
Steve Jobs, the man and the myth!
This book so kept my attention that I would actually go back and re-listen to chapters in order to make sure I heard everything correctly. I was never bored at any point while listening to this book. Good narration.
It was a good listen. Shorter than I'm used to, but it really was a nice break and very inspirational.
Maybe, The Black Stallion. If you like a good horse story then you will most likely like this one.
Interesting, Enthralling and Apocalyptic!
I loved the in depth characters.
I really liked how he did all the characters in their own voice, you always know what character was talking, just by the voice he gave them. Lots of characters and none of them sounded alike.
I don't want to give anything away.
I read this book in paperback a long time ago and loved it then. I loved it even more when someone else was doing the reading for me. It was hard for me to put down then, now, at least I could take it with me and multitask if I needed to. I would highly recommend this book, well worth the credit!
