Book recommendation: The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (2007) by Michael Pollan (looks like a great book on the evolution of meat eating!!)

Updated 3/9/2012 8:32 am @ Union City, California – came across reference to this book thanks to one of my martial arts mentor Mr. He.  Taiwanese readers can understand the summary by reading this blog:


“原本不想再漟渾水的,不過學科學的人,嘔心瀝血的文章被暗中指控扭曲科學事實,是令人寑食難安的。因此,這篇文章的目的是要為 〈群魔亂舞的美國牛肉〉作補充,證明我的提出的論點都有科學依據的。

對文 〈群魔亂舞的美國牛肉〉中的政治問題,這裡就不作討論了,畢竟政治取向是個人的選擇。

中,關於美國農業及畜牧業的探討,主要依據是Michael Pollan的The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals。Michael Pollan是加州大學柏克萊分校(University of California, Berkeley)的新聞學教授。The Omnivore’s Dilemma曾榮獲《紐約時報》(The New York Times)評選2006年年度十大好書。The Omnivore’s Dilemma中文版《到底要吃什麼?:速食、有機和自然野生食物的真相》由蕭秀姍和黎敏中翻譯,久周出版文化事業有限公司出版。”


Book Description

Publication Date: August 28, 2007

A national bestseller that has changed the way readers view the ecology of eating, this revolutionary book by award winner Michael Pollan asks the seemingly simple question: What should we have for dinner? Tracing from source to table each of the food chains that sustain us–whether industrial or organic, alternative or processed–he develops a portrait of the American way of eating.

The result is a sweeping, surprising exploration of the hungers that have shaped our evolution, and of the profound implications our food choices have for the health of our species and the future of our planet.
