This book is more of a collection of facts than a cohesive story. I was hoping for him to give more details about his experiences making the movie. He did give a few, but mostly he listed a bunch of "shocking" facts that weren't all that shocking (Americans are overweight, portion sizes are huge, fast food companies market their products to children). I thought "Fast Food Nation" was a better written book on this topic. Also, this book is poorly edited. The punctuation and grammar mistakes were distracting and made me question the accuracy of the book overall (if the editors didn't read the book closely enough to find glaring punctuation errors, did they check any of the facts presented?).
