While I felt the reader was far too monotone in her delivery, the subject matter was fascinating and insightful. The author provided extensive research and covered a multitude of topics. I really enjoyed the book and gained a greater understanding between the connection of food and life. A great read!

Great balance between popular and scientific.
Ms Herz has achieved a pleasant balance between popular and scientific writing which I greatly appreciate. The amount of research that went into the book and the experiments cited is astounding.
Even though it is a non-fiction book, I often even had the feeling like I was being told a story because the chapters (and the anecdotes in them) were so logically ordered and just flowed into each other seamlessly. Not to mention that you, as a reader, are constantly being addressed and your attention is brought to the ways you can practically apply all the findings and advice from the book.
It's a great read for anyone in the least bit interested in nutritionism, healthy living or simply the way our biology manipulates our rationality - it's astounding how much of our everyday lives is governed by food. And since we can't do much about that, you might as well get to know your biology better and learn to control it (at least as much as is humanly possible).
Suggestion for audiobook readers/listener: I do advise upping the speed to at least x 1.25 (I kept it on x 1.4 speed) since the reading speed was a bit too slow for my taste.
