I appreciate each person who sat with Mel during the coaching sessions. I felt connected to each one and learned something about myself from each story. Thank you Mel and staff for all you do to make the world a better place.

  • Salt Sugar Fat

  • How the Food Giants Hooked Us

Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end - the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public. But there are rumors that something has survived.

George Washington Carver began life as a slave in the tumultuous world of pre - Civil War Missouri. After the war, the orphaned Carver worked as a farmer, a hotel cook, and a laundryman while pursuing an education. As a professor at the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, Carver spearheaded the initiative to cultivate peanuts, soybeans, and sweet potatoes to revive the South's dismal agricultural economy. He is most remembered for the invention of peanut butter.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was well read/narrated and the story was engaging.

What did you like best about this story?

Hearing the history of George Washington Carver from birth to death and how he lead his life. I am very grateful for him and all the others who have gone on before me to pave the way so that I can live and enjoy the life I do as an American woman of African descent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

As a matter of fact I completed the book while driving and taking my daily walks. During the breaks between listening it gave me time to think about the contributions George and Frederick Douglas both gave to humanity.

Any additional comments?

I am so loving listening to books from Audible!
