it was amazing
Read in October, 2010 — I own a copy

This book was my (late) introduction to Michael Pollan's work; I don't count watching Food, Inc. since he appeared more as a talking head. But it's all been pretty mindblowing. I'm writing this review long after I've read it so while it seems negative that I can't point to any particular information to quote, I will say that his research goes so deep, and his findings are so eye-opening that his work has become part of my regular vocabulary, and I've since switched to the paradigm of living to opt out en masse from our food-science industrial complex and recruit my family and like-minded friends into the same effort. Because, to quote Gwen Stefani: "THIS SHIT IS BANANAS! B-A-N-A-N-A-N-A-S!!"

i hope you enjoyed that complimentary NA.
