The storyteller, tales of life and music

"I loved this book as i am a big fan of Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters. I actually listened to this on eAudiobook via the Libby app and as its read by Dave Grohl, it made it even more enjoyable to listen to.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this fantastic autobiography. There were moments that i laughed out loud and also moments that were alot more serious. This book gives you a really good insight into his rock and roll lifestyle (KFC and champayne!) and learning about his experiences with other bands like Nirvana and his journey to the top.

If you are a fan of Dave Grohl, this is a must read!"

Hardback:Fowl play, a history of the chicken from dinosaur to dinner plate:2022 Hardback
Author: Coulthard, Sally
Year: 2022
Language: English
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Apollo
Resource type: Physical
Note: Earth is home to 23 billion chickens, at least ten times more than any other bird. For every human on the planet, there are three chickens. Despite being capable of flying only a few metres, this most adaptable animal has somehow managed to conquer the world. In this book, Sally Coulthard probes every aspect of the genus Gallus: the evolution and domestication of the chicken; its social behaviour and array of physically striking varieties, from Rhode Island Reds to Belgian d'Uccles and from Buff Orpingtons to White Leghorns; its importance in ancient Egyptian religion, Roman augury and Christian theology; its role as egg-providing companion on farms and smallholdings and in suburban back gardens; and the darker reality of modern poultry farming and society's insatiable appetite for chicken breasts, wings and nuggets.
