Wonderful book filled with great information. My family and friends were very impressed my how much I found out after reading this book. I will never eat fast food again, though!

This book will make you think twice before grabbing a quick meal at a fast food restaurant. The author covers the terrible ways in which the animals are treated before being slaughtered, the near-impossible speeds by which the slaughter-house employees must work (causing serious injuries and even death); how fast food supports illegal immigration, the tricks used by the corporate giants to lure kids and thus their parents, and the terrible ways the employees--mostly high school teenagers--are treated, and not rewarded.

I highly recommend this book to anyone, as well as the movie "Fast Food Nation" which has an all-star cast and shows everything that this book talks about.

A great read, I found it misplaced at Third Place Books, I didn't know it was intended for young readers. I liked Fast Food Nation and this one is just as good. If you want to loose a few pounds read this, it will put you off fast food for a while, yuck!

This is basically "Fast Food Nation" designed for teen and older readers. It's a condensed version with all the major points and same feel and message as the "adult" book. If you can't get Fast Food Nation, this is a good alternative.

I got this for my 14-year-old nephew who is a fast rood junkie, and really doesn't like to read that much - would rather be on the computer. But he's read at least some of this and told me about it. I think he likes it.
