In Defense of Food

I'm a notoriously slow reader.  I drive myself crazy because it takes me months to read most anything.  But not this time!  I've just finished the wondrously insightful In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan.  I found this book incredibly fascinating.  Like, "don't want to put it down because I want to keep reading" fascinating.  As well as actually staying awake and alert enough to do so at bedtime.

As those that really know me should know, I'm somewhat fanatical about health, fitness and exercise.  Although I sometimes don't live up to my own standards, I try to do so and encourage others to do so as well.  If you're serous about learning where we went wrong and (with the U.S. government's help) got our diets off-track (Hello there High Fructose Corn Syrup!) and you're interested in trying to eat healthier, this book is definitely for you.  I really can't say enough positive things about it.

You may also find of interest my previous post of Michael Pollan at Google.
