Food Rules: An Eater's Manual, Michael Pollan (Penguin) 

Pollans' latest spells it out clearly just how to eat right.

Depending on from where you are approaching Michael Pollan's Food Rules, the author has either finely distilled his exhaustive research on the industrial food chain and North America's often counter-intuitive eating habits into approachable, easily digestible rules to govern food choices---or he has severely dumbed down his message. If you've read Pollan's previous works, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, the staunch rules and brief explanations in Food Rules strip Pollan's key insights of their elegant urgency. If you are a Pollan neophyte, his "Eat Food. Not too Much. Mostly plants" axiom outlined ---again---here in a kind of point-form can't be dismissed as hollow, even if it has been better served in previous publications.
