michael pollan was brilliant as usual; i expected as much and was even intrigued as the book went on!! however the narrator was awful for this book. he was strangely dramatic for a non-fiction book, not a good fit.
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.
Narrated with an exactly appropriate tone, this book challenges our conventional view of eating, and encourages a return to the fundamental relationship man has with food. Pollan carefully reveals the catastrophic habits of the western diet, yet avoids condemnation, a pitfall of many proponents for organic health. Instead, he inspires the common man with an argument for simpler and better health, all based on a sturdy foundation of logic and current science.
As usual Pollan writes a meticulously researched book that is both engaging and thought provoking. The reader, while competently and clearly articulating, doesn't seem to personally connect with the material. .
