To a degree both engrossing and alarming, the story of fast food is the story of postwar America. Fast Food Nation is a groundbreaking work of investigation and cultural history that may change the way America thinks about the way it eats.

Hey, don't worry about spending the money on this title... You'll make the money back on what you start saving, eating at home.

The sign of a good book for me, is that you spend time reflecting upon it, long after you have put it down (oops, turned it off).

Some will definitely find this book controversial... but isn't that a good thing? It is certainly well researched and written --- and the reader is one of the best I've heard.

Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

For the nurturer of souls...

For the thinker, philosopher and nurturer of souls...

This is my first review. I felt compelled to write something about this book...

I bought the book about half a year ago... and listened to it three times, back to back. Since then I have found myself still ruminating on what I listened to. What a great book... I highly recommend it to those who are seeking to "walk alongside" others.
