We are indeed what we eat - and what we eat remakes the world. But we are only just beginning to recognise the profound consequences of the simplest everyday food choices, both for ourselves and for the natural world. The Omnivore's Dilemmais bestselling author Michael Pollan's eye-opening exploration of the American food industry. His astonishing findings will resonate enormously for people everywhere who care about what they put on their plate. The Omnivore's Dilemmabrings a fresh perspective to the simple yet momentous question 'What shall we have for dinner?', which is overwhelming for any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the 'omnivore's dilemma'. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance. Dealing with each of the food chains that sustain us (industrialised food, alternative or 'organic' food and food people obtain by dint of their own hunting, gathering or gardening) Pollan follows each food chain through from the ground to sitting down to a meal, tracing the provenance of everything consumed. The Omnivore's Dilemmais an uncompromisingly realised, eloquent, philosophical and absorbing book for anyone who thinks about where their food comes from.

A Natural History of Four Meals The question of what to eat for dinner has become more complicated than ever. In the 21st century, we are faced with what anthropologists call, the omnivore’s dilemma. Back in the hunter-gatherer days, humans had to learn what was safe and what wasn’t. For example, we now know which mushrooms to avoid and which berries we can enjoy. Now with the evergrowing fast-food industry, we once again have to worry about which tasty foods might kill us. As you stroll the shelves of the supermarket, you are met with countless foods, all of which have different nutritional values. How do you know what to choose? What should you avoid? Should we be spending more on food? Or less? Even more, we’ve also begun to realize that our food choices affect more than just our health, they also affect the health of the environment. What we put into our bodies affects more than we realize, and we are only just beginning to recognize the profound consequences of our simple everyday food choices. So if you’re looking for a fresh perspective on the ordinary question, “What should we have for dinner?” then The Omnivore’s Dilemma is for you.

A captivating personal inquiry into the art of architecture, the craft of building, and the meaning of modern work “A room of one’s own: Is there anybody who hasn’t at one time or another wished for such a place, hasn’t turned those soft words over until they’d assumed a habitable shape?” When Michael Pollan decided to plant a garden, the result was the acclaimed bestseller Second Nature. In A Place of My Own, he turns his sharp insight to the craft of building, as he recounts the process of designing and constructing a small one-room structure on his rural Connecticut property—a place in which he hoped to read, write, and daydream, built with his own two unhandy hands. Invoking the titans of architecture, literature, and philosophy, from Vitruvius to Thoreau, from the Chinese masters of feng shui to the revolutionary Frank Lloyd Wright, Pollan brilliantly chronicles a realm of blueprints, joints, and trusses as he peers into the ephemeral nature of “houseness” itself. From the spark of an idea to the search for a perfect site to the raising of a ridgepole, Pollan revels in the infinitely detailed, complex process of creating a finished structure. At once superbly written, informative, and enormously entertaining, A Place of My Own is for anyone who has ever wondered how the walls around us take shape—and how we might shape them ourselves. Praise for A Place of My Own “A glorious piece of prose . . . Pollan leads readers on his adventure with humor and grace.”—Chicago Tribune “[Pollan] alternates between describing the building process and introducing informative asides on various aspects of construction. These explanations are deftly and economically supplied. Pollan’s beginner status serves him well, for he asks the kind of obvious questions about building that most readers will want answered.” —The New York Review of Books “By shrewdly combining just the right mix of personal reflection, architectural background, and nuts-and-bolts detail, Michael Pollan enables us to see, feel, and understand what goes into the building of a house. The result is a captivating and informative adventure.”—John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil “An utterly terrific book . . . an inspired meditation on the complex relationship between space, the human body and the human spirit.”—Francine du Plessix Gray “A tour de force.”—Phillip Lopate
