Promotional Information

For thousands of years, humans have eaten well and stayed healthy without nutritional scientists or even knowing what an antioxidant is.
So which of the modern world's hundreds of rules do we actually need?

About the Author

For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect- food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. The Omnivore's Dilemma, about the ethics and ecology of eating, was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. He is also the author of The Botany of Desire, A Place of My Own and Second Nature and, most recently, In Defence of Food.

Pollan invites us to grab our pots and pans and cook some real food for dinner * praise for In Defence of Food, Time Out *

In more than four decades I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than these principles -- Jane E. Brody * The New York Times *

In this solid companion to his other works, Pollan offers 64 "simple rules for eating healthily and happily." Some are simple adages, while others are more detailed. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
