Reason #8: Warren Belasco says my book is eye-opening, heart-rending and wonderful. (He liked it.)

REASON #8 to buy The American Way of Eating comes from Warren Belasco, president of the Association for the Study of Food and Society:

This is a wonderful introduction to the triumph and tragedy of the American food industry. Mixing compassionate participant observation with in depth, up-to-the-minute background research, Tracie McMillan takes us for an eye-opening, heart-rending tour of the corporate food chain. Along the way we meet unforgettable people who, at great personal cost, labor hard so that we can eat cheaply and easily. Having seen what it takes to move our meals from farm to table, the reader will emerge shaken, enlightened, and forever thankful.”

Warren Belasco, president, Association for the Study of Food and Society;
editor, Food, Culture & Society
