Product description

Synopsis

Eric Schlosser has visited the state of the art labs where scientists recreate the flavors and smells of everything from cooked chicken to fresh strawberries in the test tube and he has spoken to workers at meat packing plants with some of the worst safety records in the world. He explores the links between Hollywood and the fast food trade, and the tactics used to target ever younger consumers. In a meticulously researched and powerfully argued account, "Fast Food Nation" reveals the full price of our appetite for instant gratification.

About the Author

Eric Schlosser is a correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly. He has received a number of journalistic honours, including a National Magazine Award for an Atlantic Review article, Reefer Madness. This is his first book.
