Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit by Barry Estabrook
Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit

BLDSJ, January 5, 2012

It's well past the time for our society as a whole to realize and recover from the false assumptions we have been living under. Tomatoland shows how something as ubiquitous and common as an out of season tomato wreaks so much havoc on our society, our environment and the lives of so many people. Along with the simple truth, they don't even taste good. Tomatoland presents a clear picture of how we are letting cosmetic factors dictate our choices to our own ruin. It's scary and sad and it's also true. This is not a subject just for 'foodies', but for everyone.

Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage) by Christopher McDougall
Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage)

BLDSJ, July 22, 2011

I finished this book a few weeks ago. I've been working on getting back into running after many years. I ran all the time when I was young, a knee injury while playing rugby in school made running difficult. I've been working on getting back to running because I need to do something as I get close to 50. Since I still suffer effects of the surgery to correct my knee injury, I was looking for a way to improve my running without increasing the risk of additional injury. The running portion of the book has helped me tremendously. The story made the book an easy read. I recommend it to everyone.
