Common Sense and Food...Finally

With the over proliferation of diet books and "food wisdom" suffocating our culture Michael Pollan's books are a breath of fresh air. Written as a follow up to The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food, Food Rules: An Eater's Manual is a collection of common sense eating guidelines for people who want to remove themselves from the industrial food chain and move towards a more traditional way of eating actual food. Pollan breaks down his philosophy of eating into seven simple words, "Eat food, not too much, mostly vegetables." The three sections of this book are structured around this statement and offer the reader bits of advice and simple practices to help them change the way they eat. Not all of the 64 pearls of wisdom are Pollan's alone. Many of them come from people he interviewed or from his readers who submitted advice via a website created by Pollan. The advice in this book is extremely easy to understand and to put into practice. If you desire a different way of eating and relating to food this book is essential reading.
