You Should Know This

If you eat at fast food, eat meat or poultry or just want to keep informed about the health issues you face every day, this is one book you'll want to read. It might not make you hungry for awhile, but you will look at what you purchase at food store or drive-up with a new eye (and stomach)

How America became as it is

Great storytelling, comprehensive and scary. Read it and you'll learn much not only about fastfood but about pop culture, workers' rights, land of the free as it became America as we know it.
As the world is transforming into a community influenced much by the things you read about in this book the message of it becomes more and more actual.
