    In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.

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

    Really enjoyed it. There were times when the author argued a little too hard about the injustice his research has suffered at the hands of government and corporations. Not that it is not true, but to me the anger clouds the simple truth of his scientific findings.


    Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

    Though the book was about food science and politics, it was very accessible. Made me think a lot harder about what I and we as a society eat. And what it will really take to change my diet and more importantly the diet of our society.


    Have you listened to any of Don Hagen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader was fine.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I found in very interesting. Kept wishing I had more housework to do, so I could keep listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This book allows you to see the so-called obesity epidemic and chronic illness issues in a whole new light. As with so many issues in our society, we have the answer. But we are no where near the collective mindset it would take to put it in place. However, WHOLE made a real impression on me. And we have made some important changes in our diet in our household.
