Garrett Goodison's narration finds the balance between this author's deep knowledge of human biology and the subtle sardonic tone he aims at popular media. Schwarcz's informative and entertaining audiobook on scientific myths uses food, healthcare, and the environment as platforms to analyze how the relationships among living things are understood, and often deliberately misinterpreted. Dr. Oz, the popular television personality, appears as a target several times. The subjects tackled cover such topics as the toxic properties of chewing gum, the truth about whether Greek yogurt is environmentally friendly, the question of whether genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are unfairly maligned, and more. The audiobook is accessible, and Goodison's narration is dynamic. Best of all, his performance keeps the proceedings entertaining. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
