This bestselling book can change how we think about the way we eat!
"Are we what we eat? To a degree both engrossing and alarming, the story of
fast food is the story of postwar America. Though created by a handful of
mavericks, the fast food industry has triggered the homogenization of our
society. Fast food has hastened the malling of our landscape, widened the chasm
between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and propelling the
juggernaut of American cultural imperialism abroad. That's a lengthy list of
charges, but Eric Schlosser makes them stick with an artful mix of first-rate
reportage, wry wit, and careful reasoning.
