#1 New York Times Bestseller

A definitive compendium of food wisdom


Eating doesnít have to be so complicated. In this age of ever-more elaborate diets and conflicting health advice, Food Rules brings welcome simplicity to our daily decisions about food. Written with clarity, concision, and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollanís trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page, accompanied by a concise explanation. Itís an easy-to-use guide that draws from a variety of traditions, suggesting how different cultures through the ages have arrived at the same enduring wisdom about food. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the perfect guide for anyone who ever wondered, ?What should I eat?Ē

"In the more than four decades that I have been reading and writing about the findings of nutritional science, I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than the 64 principles outlined in a slender, easy-to-digest new book called Food Rules: An Eaterís Manual, by Michael Pollan." --Jane Brody, The New York Times

"The most sensible diet plan ever? We think it's the one that Michael Pollan outlined a few years ago: ?Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.Ē So we're happy that in his little new book, Food Rules, Pollan offers more common-sense rules for eating: 64 of them, in fact, all thought-provoking and some laugh-out-loud funny." --The Houston Chronicle

" It doesn't get much easier than this. Each page has a simple rule, sometimes with a short explanation, sometimes without, that promotes Pollan's back-to-the-basics-of-food (and-food-enjoyment) philosophy." --The Los Angeles Times

"A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf." --Tara Par...

MICHAEL POLLAN is the author of six previous books, including Food Rules, In Defense of Food, The Omnivoreís Dilemma, and The Botany of Desire, all New York Times bestsellers. A longtime contributor to The New York Times Magazine, Pollan is the recipient of the James Beard Award and is also the Knight Professor of Journalism at Berkeley. In 2010, Time magazine named him one of the one hundred most influential people in the world. His most recent book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, was published by The Penguin Press in April 2013.

  • Best Non-Diet Book

    Very simply stated rules. Many are reminders we already know, but do not practice. The book is brief and some parts I found humorous. Following at least the majority of the rules will help a person really make a life-style change without counting calories, fat grams, carb grams, fiber, etc. For additional movitation to eat healthier he has written other books.

  • straight to the point

    I HAVE SEEN MICHAEL POLLAN ON OPRAH, THIS LITTLE BOOK IS GREAT TO BRING TO WORK, I WORK LONG SHIFTS AS A NURSE AND AFTER UNDERGOING A BIG CHANGE IN MY NUTRITION AND SUBSTANTIAL WEIGHT LOSS "FOOD RULES" REALLY PULLS THE PRINCIPLES OF COMMON SENSE EATING INTO ONE'S DAILY LIFE,

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • read it!

    There's no good reason not to read this one. It's short and extremely quick to read. It sums up ways to make better eating choices without bogging you down with too much data. This isn't a magic diet book or other garbage that you see on book shelves these days. If you want more detail though you should read Pollan's 'In Defense of Food.' This is also a good read and is very similar to 'Food Rules' but has more information. You'll think a little more about what you're eating after this book.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Great book!

    I have always enjoyed Michael Pollan's work, and Food Rules provides succinct, informative, and realistic advice on what to put (or not put) into your body. I had been hoping he'd write a guide like this, and he did! It's short, sweet, and gets right down to the important points.
