This was one of the first books of this kind that I read and it literally changed my life. I didn't eat fast food much before that, but I haven't touched it since then. It actually made me a more conscious consumer and a healthy eater. It is very informative and shocking and sometimes not easy to read but that is the nature of the subject matter and if shock is what will make people change then I am fine with it.
Fast Food Nation
i love this book. entertaining and educational. tells the whole history of fast food -- how it arose as an industry, and the economic and political factors behind its development (eg. highway system in california, and the need for food stops along the way...). it also explores the impact of fast food on our consumption as a nation, etc. really well-written non-fiction. highly recommended!
Pros: very interesting and revealing
Cons: a little gross at times!
This is a really interesting book that covers everything related to fast food from the history of McDonald's to consumption statistics to what's in your fast food burger. Very interesting and revealing. A little gross when you think back to the times you've eaten fast food. Overall a really good book.
