Review quote

"In the more than four decades that I have been reading and writing about the findings of nutritional science, I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than the 64 principles outlined in a slender, easy-to-digest new book called "Food Rules: An Eater's Manual," by Michael Pollan." --Jane Brody, "The New York Times" "The most sensible diet plan ever? We think it's the one that Michael Pollan outlined a few years ago: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." So we're happy that in his little new book, "Food Rules," Pollan offers more common-sense rules for eating: 64 of them, in fact, all thought-provoking and some laugh-out-loud funny." --"The Houston Chronicle" " It doesn't get much easier than this. Each page has a simple rule, sometimes with a short explanation, sometimes without, that promotes Pollan's back-to-the-basics-of-food (and-food-enjoyment) philosophy." --"The Los Angeles Times" "A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf." --Tara Parker-Pope, "The New York Times"
