Praise

"Thoughtful, engrossing … You’re not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from."
-The New York Times Book Review

"An eater’s manifesto … [Pollan’s] cause is just, his thinking is clear, and his writing is compelling. Be careful of your dinner!"
-The Washington Post

"Outstanding… a wide-ranging invitation to think through the moral ramifications of our eating habits."
The New Yorker

"If you ever thought ‘what’s for dinner’ was a simple question, you’ll change your mind after reading Pollan’s searing indictment of today’s food industry-and his glimpse of some inspiring alternatives…. I just loved this book so much I didn’t want it to end."
-The Seattle Times
