Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Truth is... I found the book very interesting and enjoyable. The concepts were new to me, and surprising to me. I am not sure he makes the case that matches the title. Is he actually suggesting that I need a microbe implant to lose weight? He did make a good case for avoiding anything that is processed (but isn't that a diet confirmation?). I think he concludes Diets do work (I even think he said all of them work, if it causes you to think about what you are ingesting). He even sites the Mediterranean Diet as one that has been scientifically validated. Also, by my thinking.... even focusing on your micro-biotic makeup in the gut involves choosing and excluding certain food/substances; it's a dang diet! Diet equals a discipline. He just moves from the "trendy" form to a new trend "micro biotic" focused diet.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I thought the ending was the weakest portion of the book. I was left worrying about how I could avoid ingesting antibiotics (which stimulate growth according to this writer AND, I agree from personal experience and watching my old dog gain weight after he was feed antibiotics for a few days at the beginning of each month).The ending was WAY WEIRD when he shifted to micro transplant/implant/transferring from a turkey baster (What the heck... do I need to review this?).
Which scene was your favorite?
This book was not about scenery.
Was The Diet Myth worth the listening time?
I did enjoy learning about this man's perspective. I have recommended the book. Truth is... he speaks as if he is authority like so many and I just wonder if his position will be born out in subsequent studies. I am not a scientist, so I wonder if this is just another fad.
Any additional comments?
This seems like cutting edge thinking to me. Get it, go through it and decide. I am eating cheese, microbes, and not washing my hands (LOL!).

I would recommend this book to anybody who is interested in better understanding diet, dieting, food, and our bodies.
