This book means well, it really does. But it’s likely to irritate those of us in U.S. who can’t change how our cities and farming operations run. In many cases, we can’t even get at the options that enable some of the suggestions in this book—like eating seasonal foods from a farmer’s market.
But it’s loaded with data on surveys about things most people already recognize, like working less reduces stress, and eating better is…better. No one needs a study to tell them that.
There are some nuggets worth exploring in this book. I’ve highlighted some of the more interesting ones that caught my attention in this episode.
