    "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.

    Story

    I have read Michael Pollan's other book, the Omnivore's Dilemma, so I was somewhat familiar with the subject matter. But this book makes it personal. Eating is such an important thing, yet we spend so little time thinking about it. I am sure that if we all followed just some of his common sense approach to nourishment, we'd all be much healthier. This is not a book about diets or fads or denying yourself the pleasures of food. This is a book to teach you how to eat - because as a culture, we have forgotten how. We spend so much time watching TV or driving to/from work or aimlessly surfing the net - spend some time reading this book and you (and your family) will be the better for it.
