This book encompasses the subject of eating food like no other I have come across. The wide array and level of depth of information is amazing. Not only is Pollan's prose engaging and full of wit and humor, Scott Brick's narraration is equally outstanding bringing Pollan's prose to life with vibrance and inflection.
I don't think I am able to do the book justice in describing its breadth, so I will say that there is an abundance of good reading for the food enthusiast, the philosopher, the consumer activist, the history buff, the spiritualist, the health nut, the naturalist, the economist, but to most of all...the average human being who consumes food on a daily basis... which makes us all!!
For another enlightening book on food that covers similar grounds, check out "Much Depends On Dinner" by Margaret Visser.
