Great information from Michael Pollan, as usual, but the narration can be a bit too dramatic for the subject matter. Overall, great book!
motivated me to go to a farmers market and to start spending more time cooking and enjoying my food. I need to be the example for my son and change!
If you suspect that you should be changing the way you eat in order to lead a healthier and happier life, read this book, and you will find the inspiration to do it.
Yes, no matter what your dietary preferences, this book shines a light on the problem areas and let's you navigate your own way in between. I eat a plant based diet most of the time, but meat and dairy eaters will not be talked down to in this book and you will learn the best ways to work them into your diet.
Only if it were fiction. His dramatic reading of the subject almost ruined it for me. It was almost like a joke. Like a caricature of a dramatic reading. I've heard Michael Pollan speak and I would rather he had just read it.
If you're looking for a detailed eating plan or any specific guidelines, you wont find them. I found myself searching online for "What bread or cracker would Michael Pollan approve of?" I'm pretty nutritionally savvy but I was still unclear of how "whole" the bread had to be. Did I need to grind my own wheat berries? Could my bread come out of a package?
if you want to know how industry and nitrishinism played in our diet please read this book one of the best books in food science in red in my life
Was recommended to me through our universities' "Student Dietetic Association Book Club". As an aspiring sports nutritionist, the book laid out some very sensible, however forgotten advice (at least to us Americans)
Great book. The narrator is hard to get used to. He would be better reading fiction. The info in the book is wonderful so I recommend getting it in print form.
This was an eye opening book. There are no gimmicks, just plain common sense ideas. However, these ideas have eluded us in all the crap of information out there. I highly recommend this book to clear up misunderstandings.
