Where does What to Eat: Food That's Good for Your Health, Pocket and Plate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book is a listing of foods, with discussion of their economic, health and ecological advantages and drawbacks. There is a lot of good and interesting information, but I wish I had gotten the print version instead of audio. Also, since the book was published in the UK, much of the information is more applicable to that context than to the US. However, it did inspire me to do more research to find comparable information about the area where I live.
What about Lucy Paterson’s performance did you like?
The narrator did an amazing job of sounding enthusiastic about organic produce. Many entries had identical information (for example, the entries for beef, pork, lamb, eggs, and butter contained identical information about changes in attitudes toward saturated fats), but she managed to sound as if it was all new and exciting. I also really enjoyed her accent and the British pronunciations of words like VIT-amins and regu-LA-try.
Any additional comments?
This is an excellent compendium of useful information. I hope someone translates it into American.
