    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Stephen Redding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "Engrossing, enlightening and inspiring!"
    Overall

    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.
