This book is loaded with information, the problem that the author has, is that he has a hard time staying with his target audience. There are countless times where he uses scientific terminology to the point where the reader just flat out gets exhausted reading the terms over and over; other scientific writes tend to state the term and then use another colloquial term to represent the scientific term for the remained of the chapter. Although his grammar is correct, his sentence structure is difficult to read through. He tends to go off on small tangents about information that may be correct, but is ultimately irrelevant to the big picture that he is trying to convey, i.e. stating a plants name in its scientific term such as the genius and species name, such as saying Solanum lycopersicum as opposed to saying tomato plant. Although the title can be proven logically as correct, it is misleading to the colloquial audience. This book is not about food in layman's terms, so if you want to buy this book because you think it will talk about french fries and burgers and how they might affect aspects of your brain, you have the wrong book. There are facts in the book that you can use to help navigate your every day life, there are things that he explains that can really affect the way you view certain everyday things; but it took a lot of patience to get through the book, I rated it at a 3 solely because of the information.Was this review helpful?
