A #1 New York Times Bestseller -- "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan''s In Defense of Food, the well-considered answers he provides to the questions posed in the bestselling The Omnivore''s Dilemma.Writing In Defense of Food, and affirming the joy of eating, Pollan suggests that if we pay more for better, well-grown food, but buy less of it, we''ll benefit ourselves, our communities, and the environment at large. Taking a clear-eyed look at what science does and does not know about the links between diet and health, he proposes a new way to think about the question of what to eat that is informed by ecology and tradition rather than by the prevailing nutrient-by-nutrient approach.
Michael Pollan is a contributing writer for "The New York Times Magazine" as well as a contributing editor at "Harper's" magazine. He is the author of two prize-winning books: "Second Nature: A Gardener's Education" and "A Place of My Own: The Education of an Amateur Builder." Pollan lives in Connecticut with his wife and son.
