Reviews

"Breezy, humorous." --The New York Times

"Fact-packed and funny." --Publishers Weekly

"Spurlock expands on [Super Size Me's] harrowing themes of American obesity and offers causes and cures, all while remaining--get this--entertaining. Like a funnier Michael Moore." --Maxim

"A sobering look at the country's obesity crisis." --People (Great Reads)

"Just reading this book will give the average reader indigestion...a shocking indictment of the fast food industry." --Tucson Citizen

"He has a story to tell, and it's scary enough to keep you out of that drive-through line." --Charleston Post and Courier

"Alternately hilarious and discouraging...provides further details about the health impact of the nation's poor eating choices." --Toledo Blade

"Detailed and nuanced...very amusing." --Maclean's

"With a combination of wit, sarcasm, anger, and hard-hitting research, Spurlock argues that groups such as the American Medical Association and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have been corrupted by corporate interests." --St. Paul Pioneer Press

"Spurlock [writes] in his trademark take-no-prisoners style and with a humor that saves him from sounding pious or self-satisfied. A powerful work of reporting and punditry."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
