Product description

Review

"'When you can eat just about anything nature has to offer, deciding what you should eat will inevitably stir anxiety, ' Pollan writes in this supple and probing book. He gracefully navigates within these anxieties as he traces the origins of four meals--from a fast-food dinner to a "hunter-gatherer" feast--and makes us see, with remarkable clarity, exactly how what we eat affects both our bodies and the planet. Pollan is the perfect tour guide: his prose is incisive and alive, and pointed without being tendentious. In an uncommonly good year for American food writing, this is a book that stands out." --from The New York Times Book Review's "10 Best Books of 2006"
