There are much better books about this same subject. The End of Overeating by David A. Kessler, Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser, or anything by Michael Pollan are a million times better than this book. There were so many statistics and facts, and long descriptions of boring experiments. In between all this dry recitation there were some interesting facts and interviews, but a lot of it felt like a rehashing of better written books (like the ones mentioned above), and I gave up after the sugar section. I gave it two stars (as opposed to one star) because I feel this is an important subject to discuss, and I appreciate someone writing another book on it, especially one that ended up on the NYT bestseller list.
