Yes, for anyone who has either had a problem with too much stuff of their own or had frustration with others close to them who have too many things. The author crafted a sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing, but always captivating story about a gifted and eccentric artist and the life events that lead her into years of hoarding. I'm going to recommend it as my book for our book group.
Unlike anything else I have read. Novel topic and a great listen.
There were many moving moments. I was most moved when Marva, the artist who generally seems cold, unfeeling, and disconnected, is able to show compassion for Lucy, a personal organizer hired to help her, in her relationship with her son.
Besides being a fun listen, the author has given me some food for thought about what I value in life and what I should do about it.
This narration of Kitchen House brings to life the warmth, love, and desperation of the people of the time and their unspeakable circumstances. So much heartache and heartbreak and so little justice for the atrocities of the times. This story will stay with me for a while!
Yes. I plan to listen to it over and over until I can hammer it into my head. The truths about wheat are shocking and scary for our society. Everyone needs to read this book.
I haven't read anything else as compelling. I understand that The Paleo Diet has a similar approach but Wheat Belly gives so much historical information about how and why we all suddenly got fat that it makes you ask many questions about our national leadership in areas of agriculture, farming, nutrition, and medicine.
I don't think I have.
I was totally absorbed and shock drove me to send a copy to my brother for him and his spouse. Still trying to figure out how I can get my son to listen to it.
It's a must read for all adults with any weight issues...and maybe all adults period.
