    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I turned the speed up 1.5-2x to get through this book. The reader was well-spoken, and well modulated, but it seemed like nearly every chapter repeated something from a previous chapter.


    What could T. Colin Campbell and Howard Jacobson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Fewer repetitions of phrases and stories, as well as fewer references to being considered a heretic. Once of anything was enough. The book sounded like it was made up of a combination of speeches Dr. Campbell might have given over time, because there were so many repetitions of phrases and examples. I think the same points could have been made in fewer words.


    Did Whole inspire you to do anything?

    I have practiced eating foods as close to their natural state as possible for a number of years and am quite healthy at almost 60. I will be considering what the authors said about animal protein, but I am not completely sure I will be able to eliminate it completely...we'll see.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked the book better if it had been about 1/3 as long as it was.
