Food for Thought
Reviewed in the United States on June 10, 2019
I'm about 50 pages in to this nearly 500 page book. I'm not big on non-fiction or long books, but I've enjoyed following the author on social media so I wanted to support them through buying (and reading!) the book. There's tons of food for thought, so it's not a book you can breeze through. You need time to digest what you read. Or at least I do! Lots of great references to other readings that influenced both the author, and the other people discussed or interviewed in the book. I've enjoyed the perspectives and education so far, and look forward to what I'll learn in the coming pages! My main criticism is that reading the book is a similar experience to falling down a "research hole" on the internet. While everything connects along a common theme, the "gathered together", pastiche nature of the book takes away what I enjoy about reading a book as opposed to being on the internet, which is the opportunity to slow down and not jump from thing to thing. However, other readers might find that this style of book is a perfect way to break up 500 pages.
