A clear and straightforward look at food nutrition, specifically calories, though more scientifically detailed than I was expecting. The content itself was a bit of a mashup of food science, nutrition, agricultural/FDA/ATF policies and politics, and analysis of food marketing. The authors present a thorough overview, but duplicate a lot of information found in other resources (Michael Pollan, David Kessler, Nestle's other works) so I would say it's a necessary addition to the bookshelf if you've already read those.
