Good Review of Pollan's In Defense of Food


Via Jack, Adam Merberg of the site, Say what, Michael Pollan?, has a very interesting review of Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food. Full review here; excerpt:

…Pollan’s prose is so lively that most readers won’t want to stop and give things a closer look. However, the reader who does bother to check the details sees that In Defense of Food is not a credible work of nonfiction. Pollan twists facts and misrepresents the way science works in the course of assembling exaggerated, false, and contradictory narratives.
