"Schlosser has a panache for amazing scene-setting and also a collection of stunning truths ... Fast Food Nation points the method yet, to resurrect an old junk food motto, the selection is yours."-- Los Angeles Times

In 2001, Fast Food Nation was published to vital honor and also came to be a worldwide bestseller. Eric Schlosser's exposé disclosed exactly how the junk food industry has modified the landscape of America, broadened the void between rich and also poor, sustained an epidemic of weight problems, and also transformed food manufacturing throughout the world.

"As disturbing as it is alluring ... Exhaustively investigated, frighteningly convincing ... directing the spirits of Upton Sinclair and also Rachel Carson."-- San Francisco Chronicle

"Schlosser shows exactly how the junk food industry conquered both appetite and also landscape."-- The New Yorker

Eric Schlosser is an adding editor for the Atlantic and also the author of Fast Food Nation, Reefer Madness, and also Chew on This (with Charles Wilson).

< br/ > On any type of offered day, one from 4 Americans choose a fast and also affordable meal at a lunch counter, without offering either its rate or its thriftiness a reservation. Convenience food is so common that it now seems as American, and also safe, as apple pie. The industry's drive for debt consolidation, homogenization, and also rate has radically transformed America's lose weight, landscape, economy, and also labor force, commonly in insidiously devastating methods. Eric Schlosser, an acclaimed reporter, opens his enthusiastic and also inevitably devastating exposé with an introduction to the iconoclasts and also high college failures, such as Harlan Sanders and also the McDonald brothers, that first used the principles of a factory production line to an industrial kitchen. Promptly, nonetheless, he pursues the counter with the worn and also underpaid adolescent workers, into the factory farms where the potatoes and also beef are grown, and also into the slaughterhouses run by large meatpacking firms. Schlosser wants you to understand why those French fries taste so great (with a browse through to the world's biggest flavor firm) and also "just what truly hides between those sesame-seed buns." Eater beware: forget your worries regarding cholesterol, there is-- essentially-- feces in your meat.

Schlosser's investigation reaches its frightening optimal in the meatpacking plants as he reveals the practically full lack of federal oversight of a seemingly lawless industry. His searing representation of the industry is terribly just like Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, composed in 1906: headache working conditions, union busting, and also unhygienic practices that present E. coli and also various other pathogens into restaurants, public institutions, and also homes. Almost as disturbing is his summary of exactly how the industry "both feeds and also feeds off the young," insinuating itself into all facets of youngsters's lives, also the pages of their college publications, while leaving them susceptible to weight problems and also illness. Schlosser offers some eminently sensible treatments. "Eating in the United States must not be a kind of risky actions," he writes. Where to start? Ask on your own, is real price of having it "your method" truly worth it? -- Lesley Reed
