    Upton Sinclair's The Jungle is a vivid portrait of life and death in a turn-of-the-century American meat-packing factory. A grim indictment that led to government regulations of the food industry, The Jungle is Sinclair's extraordinary contribution to literature and social reform.

    Donald T. Wardlow says: "brilliant rendering of an old classic"
    "great book"
    Overall

    really great book for anyone who is interested in history or anyone who eats meat. if you think the meat industry has changed much... think again.

  • The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

    "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"
    "Omnivore's a must listen"
    Overall

    For everyone who is tired of living in the dark... this book is a must read/listen. Michael Pollan digs deep into the under belly of our industrialized food world we live in today and tells the truth. The truth is after you hear this book you will change your eating habits forever... or at least think before you put food into your mouth. I would and will recommend this book to all who will listen.
