this book creeped me out. not necessarily scary, just strange. and sad. not one i'll be telling my mom to read.
A fascinating and fairly easy to follow history of World War One. Ever since I discovered the 'futility of war' poems by Sassoon and Wilfred Owen many decades ago, the horrors of this war in particular have saddened me deeply. The soldiers that had to live for months and years on end in conditions so terrible it practically defies understanding. This book by Winston Groom (he of Forrest Gump fame)is a very thought provoking and enlightening piece of work.
I picked this up on the recommendation of a friend, who has had success with the author's dietary recommendations. The author presents his picks for the 150 healthiest foods, broken down by category (fruits, vegetables dairy, etc.) He presents ample data, with thoughtful analysis, to back up his recommendations. He debunks much of the hype surrounding so many foods and does not offer any exaggerated claims of his own. I found the text very readable, although I admit that about halfway through I gave up on remembering all the specific nutritional information associated with each food. Instead, I took away a greater interest in finding the best sourced, highly nutritional food for my family's diet.
