First let me say there isn't much difference between this and the "adult" version, it is slightly reworded and has pictures, graphs, and interesting sidebars.
Have you ever wondered where you food comes from? From that chicken nugget to your farmers market here is a look at America's food system. Michael Pollan explores 4 food systems Industrial, Industrial Organic, Local Sustainable, and Hunter Gather. You get to see what this are made of from corn to grass and how they get to you, and what food truly costs.
I really enjoy this book, the only problem is some times he seems to repeat himself on some topics.
