Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book who want to understand how food production, human evolution, human population, climate change, culture, animal domestication, economics, scientific and genetic developments etc. etc. are all related.
What did you like best about this story?
We tend to take for granted that food will be there for us whenever we need it. This audio book showed how our early ancestors began to domesticate animals which led a positive feedback loop of food availability, population increase, the need for more food, the development of agriculture, scientific innovation etc.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I enjoyed all of it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Too involved for one sitting.
Any additional comments?
I would so liked to have had the lecturer's opinion on the trend towards veganism and vegetarianism. How would this effect food production, land use, animal symbiosis and animal domestication. Would this be a good move for the human race, ethically, culturally, economically etc. He talked about animal abuse but I wanted him to go further on Veganism etc.

I purchased this thinking it was about human physiology and ergonomics. Not at all. It's about humans and all the things we have domesticated big and small and how reliant we are on each other. An eye opener to modern agrinomics
