Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual by Michael Pollan


Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual is a short and (not so big on the) sweet(s) little book. Written for those who are eager to learn more about the food they’re putting into their body, but aren’t interested in a lot of research, the rules are presented in a clear and easy to follow format. The length of this book is both an advantage and a disadvantage for the book in my opinion. The short length allows the reader to learn simple guidelines they can follow right away without having to analyze too much; but not every rule is so easily simplified, and I think that is why Michael makes a habit to mention a lot of exceptions in this book, and also points readers interested in knowing more to his longer book on the subject titled The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Yet the most important rule of all that Michael gives can certainly sum up the entire book in a second:

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”


Rating: 3/5
