Review: Food Rules

2010 Finishes: Books , Bookish , What, me? Have an opinion?

Food Rules by Michael Pollan
Genre: Food
Pages: 140
Rating: 7.9

You've probably heard Michael Pollan's basic rules: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." This little book expands these three rules into 64 rules, most of which are guidelines to figuring out what counts as "real food." I've heard some criticism that this is mostly a rehash of his other books, and if you've read the others, then sure, this might not be very helpful or interesting. But if you want a quick introduction to Pollan's way of thinking - or if, like me, you've been meaning to read his longer books for years and haven't gotten around to it - this is an accessible, quick read that I found both inspirational and useful on a practical level.

Thanks for the review. I have several of Pollan's books and skim them frequently, but I haven't *really* read them. I was thinking this would be a good Kindle-on-my-Touch purchase to have at the ready, but I hesitated because of the mixed reviews. I've become much more discerning about book purchases lately.
