A great overview of what happens with politics again and again. An important read, so we don't fall for the same old tricks all of the time. Good for people to see through what is happening today.

Great book. Terrible narration.

As usual, Naomi's books are well-researched and full of great information. However, it was extremely difficult to listen to and I felt like a 4-year old at storytime at the local library. The narration did not fit the topic AT ALL. I suggest reading rather than listening to this book. A good introduction to climate science, but sadly nothing new to add to what I had read before.

I was vegetarian/vegan for 17 years and never really felt well. I gave up that way of eating 18 years ago and haven't looked back. This book explains why I experienced what I did and why so many others do too. I used to be vegetarian because I thought I was helping the planet and my health. How wrong I was. An excellent, well-written book.

Well researched and well written

A great journey through today's branded world - the good, the bad and the ugly. It is hard for the everyday person to know where our products originate and the conditions in which these goods are produced. We cannot hear this enough times. Our children need to know this in detail and start to think about others in the world of products. This book is an excellent introduction into how we can make a difference with our spending habits.

Fascinating

A nice little read which shows us why discrimination needs to stop. Too many lives are being negatively impacted. People are people. Let us all be equal.
