A BONE TO PICK The Good and Bad News About Food, with Wisdom and Advice on Diets, Food Safety, GMOs, Farming, and More

by | Read by Robert Fass

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Mark Bittman's collection of op-ed pieces, which originally appeared in the NEW YORK TIMES, supports his principal concerns about how and what America eats. Narrator Robert Fass wisely opts for a conversational style, punctuated with a little attitude, to keep listeners' full attention, even in the more fact-filled articles. Although Bittman writes from a variety of perspectives, he focuses on only a few issues: the interplay of food and health, food safety, federal laws, and agribusiness. In addition, he's passionate about home cooking and eating real food. Fass's performance is expressive and engaging, but Bittman's message can become repetitive. Listeners will best appreciate this important collection one or two articles at a time, making this audiobook the perfect choice for a daily commute or lunchtime break.
