    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "Raw vegetables, eggs, meat and cheese"
    "Worth the read"

    What did you love best about Wheat Belly?

    the extensive research on the hybridization of wheat


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book is scientifically written which can make it a little hard to follow but necessary to provide background data to support his extreme claims on wheat.

    (3490)

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Mica says: "Hurt version decidedly superior"
    "LONG book but worth it"

    Story
    Where does Atlas Shrugged rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely a lengthy story - but enjoyed it immensely


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dagny Taggart - strong woman who stands by her intelligence and convictions

    Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair. Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded.

    Michael says: "A man's spiritual journey out of religiousity"
    "well done"

    What did you love best about Deconverted?

    I liked the Bible references used to point out the inconsistent messages.


    What about Seth Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Great voice for this
