Easy to digest...
Pollan's book is a must read for anyone who is confused by all the "diets" out there. It is a light hearted and common sense approach to the food we eat.

Michael Pollan has been one of the best guru's of good eating. His other books are classics and this is no exception. The difference in this book which gives it a special place is 'it is small!!" It is the simplest 'how to book' I have ever seen. I need to read it over and over. I suggest this for everyone interested in their own health.
