My DOG reviewed this book on www.birchbarkbooks.com

Well, naturally I thought the title of this book, Food Rules, was meant as a cheer: Food Rules! That is not the case, and if my people take this book to heart, there may be fewer cheezeo bits to snuffle off the floor, but still I love this book. This slender volume is created by two of my favorites: illustrator/author Mairia Kalman who paints dogs (remember Max Makes A Million?) and Michael Pollan, the brainy food activist/writer who brought us The Omnivore’s Dilemma. I thought the food thing, plus the dog-painter thing, PLUS Michael Pollan, cannot go wrong. Pollan collected his food rules by asking folks to send them to him, then he published an earlier book, then folks had more rules and Mairia Kalman had some paintings of cheezeo boxes and donuts—hence a new edition. The book is divided into three sections that are actually questions accompanied by answers: What should I eat? (Eat Food). You get the idea.

Great gift. Funny, beautiful, profound, and useful. Food Rules!
