Embassytown by China Mieville is another one of those genre bending epics that I've grown to expect from the author. I honestly don't think I can come close to describing it properly so you'll have to read the description and judge for yourself.
|Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It by Gary Taubes on the other hand is very easy to sum up. We get fat because we eat processed carbohydrates. Stop eating processed carbs like sugar, flour, artificial sweeteners and white rice then you'll find you begin to lose weight naturally.|
I'm not a dietician so I'm not going to tell you what you can and can't eat so read the book and judge for yourself.
See you next Friday.
