    "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"
    "Narration is terrible"

    Story
    What disappointed you about In Defense of Food?

    The voice is so melodramatic and exaggerated that it distracts from the content of the book. It's a nonfiction book and the narrator reads it as if it were theater performance--extremely annoying. The book itself is decent; its survey of the recent history of the food industry and "nutritionism" is very informative.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Pollan presents a very good brief history of the food industry and "nutritionism."
