EXCELLENT read. I could not put this book down!!! Fascinating revelations and insights into marketing, the history of processed food, and why we crave it. I can‘t look at anything the same anymore 😱😱

This book is SO much more readable than I thought it would be. The author is a great historian with a talent for writing about psychology, great minds, advertising, and biochemistry in a compelling and succinct voice. 100% recommend!

(Y‘all can add White Claw to my list of cravings!!! 🤪 Happy long weekend y‘all💥)

EchoLogical @RamsFan1963 I'm a little nervous to read it. I think it'll make me want to throw all my food out. 😅 3w

#AnglophileApril Day 23: #IFoughtTheLaw reminded me of this picturebook biography of Gandhi who fought, resisted, and triumphed. The Afterword also contains detailed information about the Great Salt March and there is a separate section on References for further reading and internet sources as well as the route taken tracing all the way from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi.

I wouldn't read this while eating, not because it contains gross images of food production, because you will look at what you're consuming, which is for most of us some kind of processed food, and wonder why you're eating this crap. We've been trained like puppies to love our sugary and salty snacks, we are a nation of addicts. 4 💥💥💥💥 out of 5.

Reading this book while eating my Frosted Flakes. I‘m starving but also reading this chapter about sugar and cereals, I‘m now kinda grossed out and don‘t wanna finish my snack 😖

I always start the new year with a nonfiction book. Listening to this on Libby. How do you start your reading new year?

Librarianaut My starter for 2019: nonfiction is Maps of Meaning (Dr. J B Peterson); fiction is China Rich Girlfriend (K Kwan) 7mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @Librarianaut Great choices. Happy reading! 7mo
