    One of the most admired nonfiction writers of our time retells the story of one truly fabulous year in the life of his native country - a fascinating and gripping narrative featuring such outsized American heroes as Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, and yes Herbert Hoover, and a gallery of criminals (Al Capone), eccentrics (Shipwreck Kelly), and close-mouthed politicians (Calvin Coolidge). It was the year Americans attempted and accomplished outsized things and came of age in a big, brawling manner. What a country. What a summer. And what a writer to bring it all so vividly alive.

    If you could sum up One Summer in three words, what would they be?

    Enlightening, engaging, great read


    What other book might you compare One Summer to and why?

    Any other Bryson book


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big fan of Bill Bryson, he is the best storyteller in modern times, and can make any topic interesting - From Shakespeare to Australia, and has done it again with this book, highlighting a forgotten era which had some tremendous turning points which affect the way we live and think today. More please!

    In The End of Dieting, Joel Fuhrman M.D., a board–certified family physician who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods, and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Eat to Live, Super Immunity and The End of Diabetes, delivers a powerful paradigm-shifting book that shows us how and why we never need to diet again.

    "The end of diet = Eat only vegetables and legumes."

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

    While the information inside this book is credible, it is sobering and disappointing because it's clear to me that this "end-of-dieting" diet is something I will never be able to live by.
    The skinny of it is that you need to restrict your diet to vegetables, legumes, fruits and if you really insist, and tiny amount of fish/meat. Some nuts and seeds are also fine and even recommended.
    No oil, no sugar, no salt etc. etc.
    The problem is that for most people it is a proposition that is way out of their reach, and will undoubtedly cause people to throw their hands in the air in despair... and change absolutely nothing.
    It would be much better if there was some guidance on how to make some small adjustments that will lead you to get closer to that ideal nutrition, but there's nothing of that sort in there.


    Was The End of Dieting worth the listening time?

    Not really.
