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

by

Show Synopsis+ Add to Wishlist

Pollan writes about the ecology of the food humans eat and why--what it is, in fact, that we are eating. Discussing industrial farming, organic food, and what it is like to hunt and gather food, this is a surprisingly honest and self-aware account of the evolution of the modern diet.

Eat Correctly

Great book, brings out why the food industry may be the next big tobacco law suit. If you are not eating organic foods now you will be after you read this book.

Everyone's Unrealized Dilemma

remarkable walk through modern food industry. but this is PERSONAL -- it's what we eat!
my grocery/supermarket experience is forever changed.
highly recommended -- I handed off my copy as soon as I'd read the last chapter, and ordered another!

eye opener

This is an excellent book. It opened my eyes to a lot of what happens in the food industry. The author travels and follows his meals from start to finish, with the result of a change in philosophical beliefs and a surprising connectedness with food.
