This book certainly makes you think. Not that I had not been thinking already. I mean why would you ever pick up this book, or audiobook in my case, if you had not been thinking about the ethics of eating the majority of the available groceries? Mistreated migrant workers, hens stuffed in tiny cages, cows being fed bits of other cows - all in the name of providing cheap food to Americans - or something more sinister - all to allow the belly of Big Corporation to lop, disgustingly over his belt while gouging on more ways to make money.

The book got a little long in many places. But perhaps Mr. Pollan felt the need to hammer over and over on a point to make sure that the idea was implanted in his own head as well as the reader's.

Well I have certainly been impaled.
