Publisher Comments:

Michael Pollan and Maira Kalman come together to create an enhanced Food Rules for hardcover, now beautifully illustrated and with even more food wisdom.

Michael Pollan's definitive compendium, Food Rules, is here brought to colorful life with the addition of Maira Kalman's beloved illustrations.

This brilliant pairing is rooted in Pollan's and Kalman's shared appreciation for eating's pleasures, and their understanding that eating doesn't have to be so complicated. Written with the clarity, concision, and wit that is Michael Pollan's trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely. Kalman's paintings remind us that there is delight in learning to eat well.

The hardcover Pollan-Kalman collaboration will be the Food Rules edition that families will pass down for posterity, sharing lessons for eating healthfully — and joyfully — for all their lives.

Marissa Landrigan, January 30, 2012 (view all comments by Marissa Landrigan)
I love this book. I loved the idea behind the original version of the book. After writing The Omnivore’s Dilemma, in which Pollan details the central problem of the Western industrialized diet as the distance between eaters and their food, he realized that many people here have lost their way when it comes to food. No longer do we have backyard gardens and Grandma’s secret recipes �" we instead have Kraft and Tyson and Atkins and television spots. People wanted guidance for how to “eat right.”

The new edition of the book is broken up into three sections around those three tenants, with all the original rules detailed in gorgeous illustration by Maira Kalman, and supplemented by reader-produced rules. Some of my favorites:

Get out of the supermarket whenever you can.
Eat animals that have themselves eaten well.
Have a glass of wine with dinner (yes, that’s a real rule!)
Avoid foods you see advertised on television

What I like about all these rules (and many, many others) is that, in addition to spending time detailing good nutritional practice, Pollan and his readers in this edition, spend time detailing good food behaviors. Where to shop. How to cook. What (and whom) to be suspicious of and avoid.
