Michael Pollan has another book out
« on: January 18, 2008, 07:35:00 PM »
The Omnivore's Dilemma was a wonderful book, it made a huge impression on me and I highly recommend it for anyone who is exploring their eating habits or how we get our food.  Now Michael Pollan has written a new book, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto.  I am looking forward to another great read from him.

A third book (I have it upstairs, it's next on my list) about our food is Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver.  I'll let you all know what I think of it when I finish it, but it's on the same line, thinking about where and how we get our food and how it's being corrupted along the way by big agribusiness (mind you, this included the 'organic food industry').

My wife is rereading it. She thinks it is a very good book.

Rereading which one?  Pollan's newest, or one of the other two?

That's a fantastic read, I know I'll read it again, too!  I really haven't been as struck by a book in a long, long time, I can't say enough about it.  I know his new one will be just as fascinating.

Here is a link to the .pdf'd introduction to In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, if anyone wants to get a taste (pun intended!  ;)).
