  • Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us

    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

    Michael says: "This is all too real, and YOU are the victim."
    "Excellent but narrator over the top"

    What made the experience of listening to Salt Sugar Fat the most enjoyable?

    Facinating


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    One of the best narrators forgets that over dramatizing makes the book hard to listen to. Let the words speak for themselves.

    Following September 11, the United States successfully overthrew the Taliban regime. It established security throughout the country, and Afghanistan finally began to emerge from more than two decades of conflict. But Jones argues that, as early as 2001, planning for the Iraq War siphoned off resources and talented personnel, undermining the gains that had been made. After eight years, the United States had pushed al-Qaeda’s headquarters about one hundred miles across the border into Pakistan.

    Curt says: "Interesting Book but- Worst Narrator Ever"

    Overall

    Why are we fighting a war in Afghanistan? Hint: it has to do with Russia.

    Listen to this book to hear some of the most hilarious French pronunciations ever. Difficult to even follow the gist of the narration. Get Legacy of Ashes instead- it's awesome.
