really liked it
Read from September 12 to 19, 2011

This is a fascinating book. I picked it up from the "New" section of the library without knowing a thing about it and liked it from the first pages. All of the ideas in this book really gets your mind ticking away - do we have new chronic diseases because we got rid of our parasites and our bodies have nothing to fight but ourselves? Was moving from being hunter-gatherers to farmers (while probably a necessity at the time) a really dumb thing to do? Did we evolve from cliffdwellers and if so will going back to a version of that cure some of our ills? So thought provoking and just good reading. Highly recommended.
