Be careful...this is not Pollan's typical analysis of food related issues. This is simply a short book that explains Pollan's philosophy about how to eat better food. I know some people were disappointed by it, because they were expecting something different, and I was expecting something different as well. But once I understood what this actually was, I liked how simple and clear it was. ( )

Pollan's "Food Rules" book is written / illustrated in a simplistic manner, witty, easily understood, and a nice overview for individuals desiring to learn to eat "back-to-the-basics-foods." This little pocket book has is a wide range of useful tips that can be applied to any individual at any time; it contains no complicated diets, just sensible realistic rules to help you eat healthy.

Precisely what it says: some good rules for people who eat food. And some tips on how to avoid those things that are just masquerading as food. ( )

than margarine
First words
Eating in our time has gotten complicated---needlessly so, in my opinion.
"It's not food if it came from the window of your car."
"The banquet is in the first bite."
"If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't."
"Eat only foods that will eventually rot."
"Better to pay the grocer than the doctor."
