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.Read More
