The Carnivore Diet
Shawn Baker - 2019-11-19
Goodreads Rating
Shawn Baker’s Carnivore Diet is a revolutionary, paradigm-breaking nutritional strategy that takes contemporary dietary theory and dumps it on its head.

The Case against Education
Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money
Bryan Caplan - 2019-08-20
Goodreads Rating
Despite being immensely popular--and immensely lucrative—education is grossly overrated. In this explosive book, Bryan Caplan argues that the primary function of education is not to enhance students' skill but to certify their intelligence, work ethic, and conformity—in other words, to signal the qualities of a good employee. Learn why students hun...

Ken Berry - 2019-04-30
Goodreads Rating
Has your doctor lied to you? Eat low-fat and high-carb, including plenty of “healthy” whole grains—does that sound familiar? Perhaps this is what you were told at your last doctor’s appointment or visit with a nutritionist, or perhaps it is something you read online when searching for a healthy diet. And perhaps you’ve been misled. Dr. Ken Berry is...
