I bought this, because I am very interested in organic and sustainable ways of living, with respect for the earth and its inhabitants, human or other. I had seen Joel in Food Inc. and loved his enthusiasm and opinion.
I loved Joel's enthusiasm in this book, and although I am most definitely not religious, I agree with a lot of the points he makes. Granted, sometimes he is a bit preachy and too oldfashioned for my taste, but on the whole I found this book informative, inspiring and a pleasure to listen to.
This book was recommended to me by a colleague, a journalist, who raved about it. After listening to it, I was amazed that a journalist, of all people, convinced me to give it a try. Bugliosi is very selective in how he presents his 'case', his description of Oswald's demeanor was laughable, his omission of unwelcome facts unforgivable.
I had never heard of this book, but it was recommended to me after our dog passed away last summer. Spent the credit I had, thinking it would be a nonfiction book about the author's dog. It wasn't (obviously), but what a pleasant surprise this book was. Well written, more than outstandingly performed and Enzo is great, even though he was made up. I liked the story, which moved me to my core, I loved the tone of Enzo's musings and I spent the last bit crying on my bycicle today. My wife's English isn't really good, so I tried to buy it for her in Dutch, only to find it discontinued in The Netherlands.What a pity. Thankfully I found a second-hand copy, which she finished well before me. I would recommend this book without a moment's hesitation to anyone with a soul craving a good read (or listen).
