I enjoyed Marion Nestle’s other book (What to Eat), and was equally impressed with this book. It was well researched and so interesting! So much is linked to how the food companies manipulate the public by advertising to kids.

What a perfect book for me to read as my daughter is headed to high school. With Asian grandparents who both had their doctorates, my daughter is surrounded by academics. Having attended an Ivy League university myself, it was important for me to hear that its important to support my daughter in finding the college that’s the best fit for her.

I realize the John Grisham has been writing forever, but I really enjoyed this book. Narration was amazing! The only thing that was a little annoying was the odd music from time to time. But otherwise, an oldie but goodie!

This author took a lot of time to research women and their sexuality, and wrote such a thoughtful book about how mindfulness can help with sexual issues

I saw Preet Bharara on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and wanted to know more about this book. I learned so much about the criminal justice system. Even stuff as simple as the role of the prosecutor!! I loved learning about the wheels of justice - and how judges are assigned to cases!! So well narrated!!

Jim Acosta is an amazing narrator!! His story of reporting on the Trump campaign administration is intriguing. What a dedicated and thoughtful reporter.He is definitely not “the enemy of the people”.
