Michael Pollan's Food Rules prompted a national discussion helping to change the way Americans approach eating. This new edition presents 19 new food rules, advancing the national dialogue that Food Rules inspired. The new rules underscore the central teachings of the original Food Rules: eating doesn't have to be so complicated and that food is as much about pleasure and community as it is about nutrition and health.

Michael Pollan's "Food Rules" is both important and witty.

Comments about PBS Food Rules (Paperback):

I had already read Michael Pollan's "In Defense of Food," but watching the recent PBS special on the same topic deepened my appreciation for Pollan's famous dictum: "Eat food--" [rather than industrially processed foodlike substances] "--mainly plants--not too much." His "Food Rules" distills this wisdom into 83 witty, memorable, but totally right-on aphorisms such as "Don't eat anything a third-grader can't pronounce" and "If a plant made it, eat it. If it was made in a plant, don't." After reading it twice (it goes very quickly), I decided it was time to divorce myself from the corporate food chain and dashed out to my local farmer's market to pick up quantities of locally grown, unprocessed whole foods: apples, oranges, avocado, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, tofu--even sauerkraut--and I've been enjoying their delicious, righteous flavors ever since. I gave my copy of the book to a friend and, true believer that I've become, I'm planning to buy two more to give to my adult daughter and son. Seriously--"Food Rules" distills the current, off-the-industrial-grid food wisdom remarkably well and I highly recommend it. I'm not crazy about the illustrations, but they serve the purpose of slowing you down a little as you smilingly breeze through this important but witty book.
