Thank you for linking to my article. I strongly recommend “In Defense of Food” and having seen Michael Pollan in person, his appearances are animated, engaging and well worth the time!

Agreed – it’s a stellar sequel to The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Not every point he makes is flawless, but he presents an incredibly coherent case for eating with common sense.

I saw him on this book tour about 2 weeks ago. Don’t expect an all-night event. He got mad at someone for going to long on a question (which WAS too long a rant but still no need for the pissy-ness displayed.) and frankly, I thought he came off as a bit of a jerk.

Then again, it could have been a bad night. The 1/2 hour he actually lectured was really, really interesting and very funny. Went really fast!

I’m a fan of his books, and he did sign the new one and The Omnivore’s dilemma for me.

The cost is well worth it considering you get the book too (and you can get any of your other books by him signed too! w00t!)
