Zaterdag 19 december – Leestips. Boeken die wat mij betreft bij elkaar horen.
Tot in de hemel (The Overstory), van Richard Powers. Pulitzer prijs fictie 2019. Groots opgezette roman, maar eigenlijk een mix met wetenschap en politiek. Over bomen en mensen, en over dat alles met alles verbonden is. Niet in overdrachtelijke zin, maar echt.
Verruim je geest (How to Change Your Mind), van Michael Pollan. 2019, NY Times No1 bestseller. Het echte verhaal over geestverruimende middelen. Even wetenschappelijk als meeslepend. Hoe een niet-giftig en niet-verslavend middel in de ban ging omdat het de macht bedreigde.
3 Simple Food Rules
1. Eat real food that your grandmother would recognize
2. Eat small portions
3. Eat mostly plants

Caffeine by Michael Pollan ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Stars Read 1️⃣8️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Review: I got this book for free from Audible Originals. I wasn’t too interested I. This book but it was enough motivation for me to attempt to stop drinking coffee. So far I haven’t had any coffee for the last 2 weeks. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Description: Michael Pollan, known for his best-selling nonfiction audio, including The Omnivores Dilemma and How to Change Your Mind, conceived and wrote Caffeine: How Caffeine Created the Modern World as an Audible Original. In this controversial and exciting listen, Pollan explores caffeine’s power as the most-used drug in the world—and the only one we give to children (in soda pop) as a treat. Pollan takes us on a journey through the history of the drug, which was first discovered in a small part of East Africa and within a century became an addiction affecting most of the human species. Caffeine, it turns out, has changed the course of human history—won and lost wars, changed politics, dominated economies. What’s more, the author shows that the Industrial Revolution would have been impossible without it. The science of how the drug has evolved to addict us is no less fascinating. And caffeine has done all these things while hiding in plain sight! Percolated with Michael Pollan’s unique ability to entertain, inform, and perform, Caffeine is essential listening in a world where an estimated two billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #caffeine #caffeineaddict #coffee #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #audiobook #audiobooks #audible #audibleoriginal #michaelpollan #starbucks #starbuckscoffee #dunkindonuts #📚 @audible (at New York, New York) https://www.instagram.com/p/CBdAVh5gFaR/?igshid=lrtquyy0fm9r
