If you are trying to avoid fast food, this is the book for you. Read it alongside Upton Sinclair's The Jungle if you're looking to really clean out your stomach. A mix of facts and stories of real people, this book will make you think twice about what we eat in America. Read full review

Alright, I'll admit it. I still eat meat. Heck, I still eat at McDonald's. I cringe but I still succumb. The book was an important one for me to read. I certainly work harder now at providing healthier foods for our family. It did make a difference. Read full review

This book take a look at the unique relationship between the fast food industry, automobile industry, and American culture. It shines a light on the unhealthy culture that we have developed. It is a one-sided look at the fast food industry, but it serves it purpose. I often find myself going back to references in this book and questioning our way of life in regards to American obesity, the reluctance to modify driving habits, and practices of big business in American culture.
