To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918 by Adam Hochschild
To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918

Phoebe, January 4, 2013

I had always believed that World War I shouldn't have happened. This book bears that belief out. It also enumerates the numerous ways all sides used and misused technology and opportunity. Most of all, it paints a clear picture of the horror of trench warfare. It also shows that numerous people knew the Versailles Treaty was bad - as one put it, 'A peace to end peace.'

Good Calories, Bad Calories: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight Control, and Disease by Gary Taubes
Good Calories, Bad Calories: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight Control, and Disease

Phoebe, November 16, 2007

The first part of this book includes an eye-opening review of 'scientific' studies done on diet and heart disease. There's a lot of contradictory evidence that never appeared in Time or Newsweek. Not that you would know it by what the 'experts' claim as incontrovertible truth.
