Anyone who knows me knows that this book would be right up my alley. I'd had this book on my TBR list long before it was first recommended to me by a friend. I am highly conscious of what I eat (and what I don't want to eat). Pollan's "natural history of four meals" was incredibly interesting to me. I already knew most (though not all) of the history behind the industrial meal, but was appalled at what went into the food of the industrialized organic meal, and wondered if it is really much better than a McDonald's meal. I found myself most sympathetic to the small "beyond organic" farm in Virginia and if I ever decide to eat meat again, it would be bought at such places.
