    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Kimberly says: "Good book, but read The Omnivore's Dilemma first"
    "Engrossing and Informative"
    Overall

    I knew I would learn from this book, but I didn't realize how much I would enjoy it. I found myself really engrossed in this book - so much so I wanted to do the dishes so I'd have an excise to put in headphones. I have really changed my perspective on food and loved the way it debunked so many myths of "nutritionism" in favor of sense.

    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "A great look into a deep question"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book and the way it looks at life. Some of the psycho-babble grew a bit tedious, but as the book pressed further things only got more interested. I recommend it to anyone wondering about why we make choices and how we really feel about their outcomes.
