I was enlightened on so many levels. I have a greater appreciation for the food I eat & can make more informed decisions because of what I learned from this book. Michael Pollan was able to take a topic heavy with information & also make it easy & enjoyable to digest.
This book and a handful of others has indelibly influenced my outlook on the world D con of me and my own personal lifestyle if you have any interest in improving your own diet for the economy or even strictly environmental interest this book is fantastic.
Great book however, the chapters that elaborate on the authors cooking techniques and mushroom adventures tempted me to stop listening. All content besides the above was great.
I'm actually writing this review upon doing some library cleanup on my account. It has been about 30 days since I finished it, and I don't remember most of it. It was not nearly as engaging as I had hoped for it to be. If this kind of content fascinates you, then you will likely enjoy it. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend.
This book changed the way I think and feel about the food on my plate. It isn't a particularly enjoyable read, Pollan is a bit didactic at times, but the narrative string is there enough to follow through as you learn about the industrial food change, organic and beyond organic foods, and even hunting and gathering (although in retrospect I might have stopped reading before that last chapter).
My doctor encouraged me to get this book, so it took some time before I picked it up. Now I am the one recommending the book. If you have taken the time to get read this then just get it. You will not regret the decision.
