I give this one 10 out of 10 acorns.
My brother in law randomly gave me Omnivore's Dilemma one year and once I picked it up I didn't put it down. It's infectious in the best way possible. I credit this book with starting me down the permaculture path, introducing my family to the work of Joel Salatin, and eventually leading me here to Permies!!! Michael Pollan documents the three major food producing systems that our society has to offer and allows the reader to draw their own conclusions and solutions. This may not be for everyone, but I really appreciated his relatively unbiased portrayal of our food production systems without demonizing any particular producer. It's a great read and a really good way to inspire folks to come up with solutions or just be angry at a bad guy if they want to! A little bit of something for everyone!!!
