    "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"
    "Boring!"

    What would have made In Defense of Food better?

    The negative approach to this book made it almost unbearable. The book didn't defend a whole food diet but rather took a very confrontational offensive approach to the poor dietary choices we make today.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Pollan again?

    I like Michael Pollan, but this book was definitely not one of his best.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Good narration-poor story to tell


    Any additional comments?

    What a waste of my listening time.
