    Throughout history, food has acted as a catalyst of social change, political organization, geopolitical competition, industrial development, military conflict, and economic expansion. An Edible History of Humanity is a pithy, entertaining account of how a series of changes---caused, enabled, or influenced by food---has helped to shape and transform societies around the world.

    What would have made An Edible History of Humanity better?

    I really liked Tom Standage's "History of the World in 6 Glasses" and I thought I would have liked this book, but it just wasn't as interesting. I think a little less scientific information about how all of the grains formed and little more story telling would have made it better.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was really monotone and boring. I felt like I had to concentrate too hard to follow along with what was being said.
