What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, with The Omnivore’s Dilemma, his brilliant and eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species. In the years since, Pollan’s revolutionary examination has changed the way Americans think about food. Bringing wide attention to the little-known but vitally important dimensions of food and agriculture in America, Pollan launched a national conversation about what we eat and the profound consequences that even the simplest everyday food choices have on both ourselves and the natural world. Ten years later, The Omnivore’s Dilemma continues to transform the way Americans think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating.

A must read! If you only venture into one of Michael Pollan’s book, (and all books by him should be on a reading list) this is the one to pick. Extremely well written and researched, Michael Pollan takes you on an amazing journey into the world of the food we eat, and humanity itself, that we are all apart of and rely on for almost every part of our daily lives, yet do not see, or worse, choose not too.

Highly intelligent, a must read for any person ready to understand the true nature and consequence of modern American lifestyle to a degree of breakdown that will satisfy the questions you have about the food, nature and process of what we are being fed.
