Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal - Eric Schlosser Well-written and obviously thoroughly researched - "enjoyed" is probably not the correct way to describe my reaction to this book, but I certainly appreciated it. I expected the book to focus mostly on the food itself, and was pleasantly surprised to see that the author had spent lots of time tracing not only what goes into some fast food chains' offerings, but also how their business models have affected farmers, consumers and property development. As you might expect from the title, it's a sobering picture.Did I give up fast food entirely after reading this? No, but I do think about my choices more than I used to.
