This is probably one of the best written, well researched non fiction books I've read in my life. Since moving to New York I've become very passionate about having good, local, organic food. Although I expected this food to give me a look and even more reasons about why fast food is harmful for our bodies, I was in for a bigger treat and learned how our fast food chain establishments hurt us economically, and morally. There is a whole backdrop of workers who make this kind of market possible. There are explorations into these kind of establishments from a political, industrial, economic, and social point of view. I would really encourage anyone and everyone to give this book a try.

Although to be fair, the whole chapter about ecoli and beef really just made me want to get a hamburger. I'll be ordering them medium to well done from now on, however.
