Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 2/19/2014

    " I truly believe that every human being should read this book. Jane Goodall arms you with much needed information about our food, agriculture, and consumerism- yet with an uncommon warmth and heart. She does not talk down to or condemn the reader, instead she instills hope for the future! I was furious at the way I feel so many consumers spend their lives misled, but I was so thrilled to be given the opportunity to change my life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misti | 2/19/2014

    " This was a good book but towards the end got repetitive. I will definitely be changing some of my eating habits in regards to this. Choosing more organic and humane foods. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/16/2014

    " This book reminds me of another I read concerning the way we raise food and treat the animals we harvest. It was Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollen. The whole thing is pretty disturbing but probably very important information. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/16/2014

    " I love Jane Goodall's positive and hopeful perspective, while also being realistic and honest about the dire situation of the environment and the effects of our eating habits on ecosystems and living beings, both humans and non-human. Most of what she discusses I have already read about, and at this point her book is a bit outdated, but her style makes this a great book for anyone who is new to this topic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 1/12/2014

    " It was a pleasure to read some personal information about Goodall, having first "met" her through her academic writings when I was a student of anthropology in the '60s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 1/2/2014

    " Listened to the sublime Ms. Goodall narrate this book on tape. A very simple and stirring overview of global food markets. A plantive call for attention to the true price of consumption with reasonable suggestions for the consumer/eater. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Swift | 12/10/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 12/2/2013

    " A great explanation of what our indulgent eating habits are doing to the earth and lots of good advice of how to remedy the situation. I would recomemend it to anyone who eats. "

    " Great book! Very easy to read. Jane Goodall talks about taking a mindful approach to where, why, how, what on how our food is being produced. She has great resources that back up her thoughts and concerns. I became a peso-vegetarian after reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ctmurrays | 1/31/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 8/11/2011

    " A little disappointing. I admire her integrity and her choices, but didn't feel that she was enough of an authority on the topic to write a complete text. I would have liked more depth, less breadth and personal anecdotes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 5/17/2011

    " It's like a watered-down version of "The Omnivores Dilemma". She gives a lot of her emotion to it, but a lot of the science feels second- if not third-hand. Good intro to getting people thinking about where their food comes from, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ctmurrays | 3/4/2011

    " Really enjoyed this book, particularly the first hand accounts of living in very poor countries and what problems the food supply industrialization has caused. "

    " While I agree with her conclusions, I was upset by her reporting. She seemed to either misunderstand some of the science surrounding genetically modified foods-- or to be presenting partial truths to make a more convincing argument... "
