I had picked this up having heard Pollan speak last year. I thought he was a good speaker but he is definitely a great writer. This book will probably be compared to Fast Food Nation frequently but I think this is a better book in every regard. It is beautifully written and in the manner of an investigative reporter as opposed to someone who is looking to confirm his views.
Pollan may take sides but only after describing the pros and cons of different types of farming, etc. Whereas Fast Food Nation leaves you feeling gross, this book leaves you more educated and allows you to decide where to go next.
Audio: The narrator was wonderful and made for a pleasant listen. There were a couple hiccups in the digital recording which were annoying but only happenned a couple times losing less than a sentence.
