Thoughtful, engrossing ... You are 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 timezone of gleeful irony and barely suppressed outrage and a way of inserting himself into a narrative so that a subject comes alive through what he's feeling and thinking. He is a master at drawing back to reveal the greater issues."Los Angeles Times"
If you ever thought what's for dinner was a simple question, you'll change your mind after reading Pollan's searing indictment of today's food industry and his glimpse of some inspiring alternatives.... I just loved this book so much I didn't want it to end. "The Seattle Times"
