"The Washington Post"
Thoughtful, engrossing ... Youre not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.
"The New York Times Book Review"
Michael Pollan has perfected a toneone of gleeful irony and barely suppressed outrageand a way of inserting himself into a narrative so that a subject comes alive through what hes feeling and thinking. He is a master at drawing back to reveal the greater issues.
