Dry, academic, yet interesting
The writing felt much like a college textbook. The narration absolutely felt like a lecture. I had a great interest in the subject matter however, so by listening to it at 1.25X, I was able to get through it. The cultural history presented here is interesting. You may want to zoom through some of the lengthier passages in which the author quotes voluminous amounts of source material without providing any real insight.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes! This book is well written, well narrated, and, is very educational. I learned a lot about food, and it has made me more conscience about my food and drink choices.
What did you like best about this story?
The information in the book was amazing. Rather than saying 'This is BAD!' the author uses research and anecdotes to illuminate how sugar and sugar substitutes have bee uses and developed.
What does Navida Stein bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I recommend this not only to history fans and foodies, but also people who are interested in marketing,
