Review

An eaters manifesto ... [Pollans] cause is just, his thinking is clear, and his writing is compelling. Be careful of your dinner!
"The Washington Post"
Thoughtful, engrossing ... Youre not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.
"The New York Times Book Review"
Michael Pollan has perfected a toneone of gleeful irony and barely suppressed outrageand a way of inserting himself into a narrative so that a subject comes alive through what hes feeling and thinking. He is a master at drawing back to reveal the greater issues.
"Los Angeles Times"
If you ever thought whats for dinner was a simple question, youll change your mind after reading Pollans searing indictment of todays food industryand his glimpse of some inspiring alternatives.... I just loved this book so much I didnt want it to end.
