IN DEFENSE OF FOOD An Eater’s Manifesto

by | Read by Scott Brick

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Scott Brick brings the necessary energy, pacing, and articulation to what promises to be one of this year’s most popular and provocative titles. His delivery of Pollan’s critique of what we eat is delivered with a heavier irony than readers might find on the page and misses some of this fine stylist’s quieter tones. However, of all Pollan’s work, this particular title requires the most force and assurance, and the pacing of a skilled reader. Pollan’s denunciation of “the ideology of nutritionism,” packed with studies, names, theories, and suppositions, is food for two or three listenings. Brick carries this manifesto against nutrition science and food manufacturers with the voice of indictment—unflinching, unflagging, and fired by conviction.
