    Story
    (406)

    For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number.

    Story
    What didn’t you like about Mike Chamberlain’s performance?

    The reader's voice was nice, however, his errors in pronunciation of words, both scientific and not, was very poor. It is hard to imagine that these were typos by the author given the scientific research provided in this book, however, it is possible that these are the authors mistakes. When listening I attributed these errors to the reader. For example, in a book claiming to be scientific, reading A-1-c (A one c) as A-I-c (A eye c) is unacceptable and calls into question the integrity of the author and the book. Also, using adopt instead of adapt is inappropriate.
