Free for All: Fixing School Food in America (California Studies in Food and Culture, 28)
There have been a lot of very good food issue-related books published lately, many following in the footsteps of Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma. Free for All is not one of them. This is not to say it is a bad book, but it is written by a university professor accustomed to writing scholarly articles, rather than a journalist accustomed to writing words for the masses, and this is abundantly clear in Poppendieck's prose. If you are strongly interested in the issues she discusses, this is an excellent book, but it's definitely not something to pick up for a little weekend reading.
