I <3 Michael Pollan's books. They all tend to be informative, and spawn plenty of introspection. This one was even laugh-out-loud funny at times!

My one quibble with this particular book that I didn't have with The Omnivore's Dilemma or In Defense of Food is that it's a bit ... patronizing at times. He starts out with a problem and then carefully leads the reader through the steps to the conclusion he came to, in a tone that implies it's the best solution. Eh, it's a small criticism compared to the overall delight I experienced while reading it.
