Gary Taubes lectures at Berkeley School of Public Health

The Quality of Calories: What Makes Us Fat and Why Nobody Seems to Care
November 27, 2007, 04:00PM
Sibley Auditorium


This links to a page with a brief description of Taubes's work and a link to a Real Audio file of the entire lecture. Length: about 1 hour 50 minutes.

In case you were waiting for the movie version of Good Calories, Bad Calories before you read the book, this is it.

The School of Public Health at UC Berkeley sponsored this event. In it, Gary Taubes says it's his first lecture. Lots of great information that's not even in his book. Plus, get the added benefit of facial expression, body language, and inflection. His book is written in such an even-handed, objective tone -- it's exciting to witness his passion, even his frustration at the cockeyed reasoning he's encountered during his many years of research putting together Good Calories, Bad Calories.
