Pure fun. A hugely entertaining book that manages to blend future-tech and nostalgia in equal parts.

The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan
The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

Josh B, January 12, 2010

This book is undeniably one of the most significant books of the decade. Its significance is not in the particular political agenda that Michael Pollan espouses but rather in the simple presentation of facts.

How much do you think about the food that you eat?

Pollan takes a hard look at four different food supply chains: factory farming, big organic, local/small organic, and foraging (which is used more for comparison than anything else). He discusses the true costs of each type of food, and the results are quite chilling.

This may not change your eating habits, but it will certainly prompt you to think about where all of your food comes from, and what we as a country are doing to our food supply.
