What did you like most about The Big Fat Surprise?
Such an easy listen despite the material contained. As soon as I finished I listened to it over again. Very informative.

An excellent book! Well written, interesting, covering an extremely important subject and doing it well. Truly life-changing. I have listened to it several times and gave away at least 10 copies of this book. A must read!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend it to a friend because it addresses "numero uno" : health.
What does Erin Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She is one of the best narrators I have heard. I have heard the author speak in a podcast and Bennett brings her persona into the story. In this way she is like a good actor.
Any additional comments?
This is one of those books that changed long-held beliefs and reset my worldview. Every few years I run across one. The last time was "Power to Save the World: the Truth about Nuclear Energy" by Gwyneth Cravens. It overthrew decades of received wisdom--what I thought I "knew."
"Big Fat Surprise" does the same thing for the energy source used in our bodies.
This book, like the other, doesn't just make assertions. Seemingly paradoxical ideas are backed up with a lot of convincing history and evidence. Along the way you will learn some nutrition science. And some science history-- including the political corruption of science. If you are disposed to have popular orthodoxies challenged and overturned this is a great book. The kind of book one reads several times.
