The content of this book is great, but it is very technical at times. If you are not familiar with medical and scientific terminology, this book might be a little difficult for you to listen to.
The reader takes a while to get used to as his voice is monotone. After an hour, you get used to it though.
I would recommend this book for those interested in improving the health and quality of their own life and the lives of loved ones.
I've followed Matt Taibbi for years on Democracy Now so I bought this book to support him as a journalist I trust. I must say... this book FAR exceeded my expectations! The book is written beautifully, providing facts from court cases to real life struggles from those affected by the criminal justice system... and those who have been, and will continue to be forgiven by it. I've always been aware of THE DIVIDE, but I now have concrete evidence to support what I already knew. The narrator did a great job of keeping the book interesting. I've already recommended this book to everyone I know, so now I'm recommending it to you! :-)
I've heard a lot of good things about this book, and when I listened to it, I now know why. Michael Pollan takes you on a beautifully written journey through the world of what we eat, and more importantly, what we eat eats!
The book is informative, and funny and disgusting at times, but you come away with a completely different view of the world of food. Thanks to the Omnivore's Dilemma, I can now make much better decisions about what I eat. Thank you Mr. Pollan.
I love that the book gives the other side of the story... the side of the story that is ignored in History books "approved" for students. This book outlines how this nation was created, the good with the many, many bads. It tells about the history of the People's struggle against endless greed and corruption between the Rich and the Politicians. What happened in the 18th and 19th century is still happening today.
I can't think of any other books that cover's the time period of this book. I've read many history books on Politics, Native Americans, Latino Americans, and African Americans, but this book touches on all of these tragic stories.
I don't have a favorite... the entire time I listened to this book, my stomach was in knots. The deception and violence permitted and performed by the U.S. government and the businesses that it fought to support, is jaw dropping.
