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.
