Title: Food Rules: An Eater's Manual
Author: Michael Pollan
Call Number: RA 784 .P6429 2009
Location: 3rd Floor Science and Technology
Book Review: A quick read that focuses on food in the Western diet with a few pages of explanation, followed by 64 food "rules". Some of Pollen's "rules" are obvious common-sense but are presented with interesting details that make them fun to read. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in better understanding why and how our diets have become so complicated and unhealthy, and what to do about it.
