Synopsis by Alice Day
In the hands of author and host James Burke, historical events that seem unrelated become enmeshed in a series of connections that result in surprising results. In Connections 3: Feedback, Burke investigates the origins of feedback in French vineyards and follows the trail to the Humane Society, drowning, shipping, the possibility of a new diet, and Kellogg's cornflakes. Burke has an engaging manner and delivers his findings with humor and a fast pace that hold the attention of young and old alike.
