If you've read FAST FOOD NATION or FATLAND, or if you've seen Morgan Spurlock's documentary, SUPERSIZE ME--in which Spurlock spent one month living on McDonald's food--you may wonder what can be added to the vilification of the U.S. fast-food industry. Surprisingly, DON'T EAT THIS DOOK is packed with plenty of fresh health and nutrition facts. (Do American grandparents REALLY exercise more than their grandkids?) Unlike Spurlock's popular documentary--a merger of muckraking and performance art--his audiobook focuses on a more specific point: Corporate forces have compromised our desires, our freedom of choice, and our ability to make objective decisions. With his hint of a Kentucky accent, Spurlock is a homespun and invigorating reader. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
