The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals
By Michael Pollan
Why this book?
Like me, you will love this book for many reasons. It was one of the first to raise everyone’s consciousness about the richness of the meaning of food. What we choose to eat has implications for our own health (of course), but also for society and for the environment. You may not agree with all the book’s conclusions, but it provides such a wake-up call to all of us to look at what Pollan calls ‘America’s national eating disorder.’ And….to understand that just a few companies control the majority of what we consume! This is a book that will never get old or outdated unless there is a truly cataclysmic change in our food environment. The style is serious, but it is always entertaining.
