  • The best 'NON-DIET" diet book out there...

Valuable insights into the food industry.....

Although not a diet book per se, without reading it, a person who wants to control his/her overeating (or just to make healthier choices) starts with a huge disadvantage. It explains how the food industry, grocery chains and restaurants work hard to make food a "fun" experience which leaves you wanting more and more. We used to feel better after eating a we feel worse - bloated and over-full. That's because food that is simply prepared with fresh natural ingredients is increasingly rare. Add the alarming fact that the constant advertising to children of "snack foods" fast foods and sugary cereals starts them on a road to life-long health and weight control problems. This book altered my perceptions when looking at a menu or going food shopping. Although I enjoy eating a good meal very much, I now try to make more simple and home cooked food, to avoid "prepared foods" and to read labels. Well worth listening to!

Her name is Clara Rinker, a southern woman, trim, pleasant, attractive, and the best hit woman in the business. She isn't showy; she just goes quietly about her business, collects her money, and goes home.

A wonderful addition to the Prey series. This was the first one I "read" and I was hooked! Richard Ferrone's reading is perfect and the story is a real grabber from the first chapter!
