I found it boring. I couldn't stick with it sadly. I read the first three chapters and skimmed some till the end, It's just a topic I have heard and read other books on. It's a good concept but I don't think there was enough there to write a whole book on and make it memorable. I did however, enjoy some of the subject matter. I believe family meals are incredibly important. I felt the premise of making the food together, eating it together, and cleaning up together exhausting and would better love just the concept of sitting down with family and talking. They call it eating "slow food" instead of rushing to eat and not enjoying each others company. Like I said, I do love the concepts in this book but felt there wasn't enough meat in what was written.
