A must read for every American! Easy at a glance guide at what to and what NOT to put in your mouth! This book is written in a way that will reach anyone who picks it up and reads it.

This book would be a great way of sharing with friends and family without inundating them with too much information.

Practical. 64 concise rules with short explanation when necessary. No new material here, instead, a summarization of his past work. More for the eater in all of us than the intellectual.

This is a great encapsulation of In Defense of Food in my opinion; great quick reference and full of wit as well.

This books distills a lot of information into a short set of common sense food ideas. Nothing really new, but nice for a quick reminder when you need. The book can be read in one sitting.

This is the to-go size of Pollan's "In Defense of Food". Taking the three primary guidelines of the previous work: Eat Food, Not too Much, Mostly Plants; he gathers pithy statements from the ages and sorts them into the above-named sections. The result is a kind of secular devotional. Something to dip into for short periods, over and over, to change the way you see and think about food.

Concise, quick read. The book is not a detailed reference book, rather a point by point manual for healthy eating. I really enjoyed picking it up for a few facts at a time.

Nothing new here but the presentation is different. Simple rules to eat by. Something like this might be helpful in our schools since it's a little more direct than the food pyramid.
