Summertime 2010 Book Review Series: ‘Food Rules’ by Michael Pollan

Filed under: Review — @ June 2, 2010

Books, books, and more books! I got ‘em coming out of my ears for the Summer of 2010, so I’m doing this special series of reviews of the newest and best low-carb, health, and nutrition books that you may want to take a closer look at. Many of the authors of the featured books are scheduled to be guests on my podcast show in the coming months. My goal is to try to feature at least one new book review a day, every day all summer long. There’s a lot of great stuff out there you need to know about and I can’t wait for you to see what all is available! ENJOY!

If you’ve been paying attention at all to the subject of diet and health over the past few years, then there’s no doubt you’ve heard of the name Michael Pollan. A trained journalist, he’s transitioned from reporting on the story to BECOMING the story with his highly-influential New York Times bestselling books The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food as well as a major appearance in the critically-acclaimed film on the state of our food supply in America called Food, Inc.. Yes, Pollan has been a busy man and he’s doing great work educating the public about what healthy eating is all about. While most people tend to make their diet more complicated than it needs to be, the reality is it’s rather elementary if you stick with a few basic principles to guide your daily decisions. That’s the concept behind Pollan’s latest offering called Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual.
