An eye opening book. Micahel Pollan has a wonderful writing style and doles out great information. I learned a lot as well as being entertained. It's a quick read and definitely worth the time.
Pollan makes some good points around his "eat food, mostly plants, not too much" theme. I learned a lot about the history of the business of food in America, and how most of our food is crap as a result. It gets a bit too technical at times, but if you are into the local/whole food movement you will get plenty out of this book.
Sorry. I'm sure if you're a "foodie," this is the book for you. I wasn't looking for a diet (though I could use one), but I thought this would be "reader friendly." I didn't think it was; I found it heavy going and admit that I skimmed a lot. Guess it just wasn't what I was looking for.
