In A Bone to Pick, Mark's most memorable and thought-provoking columns are compiled into a single volume for the first time. As abundant and safe as the American food supply appears to be, the state of our health reveals the presence of staggering deficiencies in both the system that produces food and the forces that regulate it. Bittman leaves no issue unexamined; agricultural practices, government legislation, fad diets, and corporate greed all come under scrutiny and show that the issues governing what ends up in our market basket and on our tables are both complex and often deliberately confusing. Unabashedly opinionated and invariably thought provoking, Bittman's columns have helped readers decipher arcane policy, unpack scientific studies, and deflate affronts to common sense when it comes to determining what "eating well" truly means. As urgent as the situation is, Mark contends that we can be optimistic about the future of our food and its impact on our health, as slow-food movements, better school-lunch programs, and even "healthy fast food" become part of the norm.
At once inspiring, enraging, and enlightening, A Bone to Pick is an essential resource for every listener eager to understand not only the complexities inherent in the American food system but also the many opportunities that exist to improve it.

I had the same perspective when I was in college.
I'm currently working to save up money to buy my own land. the story of Mark bittman's analysis is factual and there needs to be more transparency amongst Food Corporation of what he is conveying to the American public.

love the topic but very biased and one sided
Saying things like only an idiot would disagree with what I'm saying is close minded and myopic.
