Publisher Description

"Outstanding . . . a wide-ranging invitation to think through the moral ramifications of our eating habits." —The New Yorker

One of the New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of the Year and Winner of the James Beard Award

Author of How to Change Your Mind and the #1 New York Times Bestseller In Defense of Food and Food Rules


What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, with The Omnivore’s Dilemma, his brilliant and eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species. In the years since, Pollan’s revolutionary examination has changed the way Americans think about food. Bringing wide attention to the little-known but vitally important dimensions of food and agriculture in America, Pollan launched a national conversation about what we eat and the profound consequences that even the simplest everyday food choices have on both ourselves and the natural world. Ten years later, The Omnivore’s Dilemma continues to transform the way Americans think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating.

An eye opener.

It is sad to see how dangerous is the cheap food.

Great Read for Food Lovers

As someone who has loved cooking for years, but has just recently discovered the joy of REAL food, this was a phenomenal read. Pollan does a marvelous job of presenting both sides of the many issues he tackles in this book, but without being too preachy. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in where their food comes from
