I read the first three chapters in a single sitting (very rare nowadays with my ADD-like mind) while eating an oat fudge bar. If you have a sweet tooth, you MUST read this book. It is fascinating and fun to read. I love how it examines a sugar addiction from multiple angles. Make sure you have your dessert of choice when you pick it up.
