I can just imagine the response to Michael Pollan’s excellent book, In Defense of Food – people probably said to him: Ok, that’s great, but what exactly should I be eating? This very short book is his response. He gathered food wisdom from a wide variety of sources and distilled it into 64 rules about what to eat. A quick read, excellent advice, and I highly recommend it! (submitted by JF)

Michael Pollan keeps it simple, straightforward, and sparse. Within this book you will discover his 64 rules for the selection and eating of food. Some are almost self-explanatory, such as "Treat Treats as Treats" but some make less sense at first, like "If it comes from a planet eat it, if it was made in a plant don't eat it." It can take a minute to chew over what he says, but it all ends up making a lot of sense. I need to take some of these things on myself, and hope to in the coming months.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Am I eating healthier or developing an eating disorder?

Who else is here for high school summer reading?

Short simple advice, but not as compelling or well written as his other reads. Prefer Omnivore's Dilemma and Cooked.

This book must have been a breeze for Michael Pollan to write - it sure was a breeze to read! Sort of a summary of his In Defense of Food, this almost-pocketbook (it's almost small enough to keep on hand throughout the day!) provides you quotes, anecdotes and moer about how we should focus (or not focus) our eating. From old wives tales to etiquette rules, Mr. Pollan really has created an easy manifesto for "good" eaters everywhere. Remember: Eat food, not a lot, mostly plants!

This little book is great but it deserves only 3 starts because it is only a summary (quick and easy to read) of Michael Pollan awesome book: In Defense of Eating. If you are lazy read this one, if you want more details and a better read go to In Defense of Eating instead.

Fantastic book for sensible eating. Loss the diet and just stick to these rules. This is a pocketbook of the rules that were explained in "In defense of food".

Short form of the conclusions from his previous book, which explains how after millennia of successful human diets we Americans have managed to embrace a diet that causes deadly diseases.

Entertaining yet to-the-point: "Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much." He has great rules for recognizing food.
