Recommended Reading

Today I received my REIN CDs in the post. After loading them into itunes and started to listen to Don Campbell and all the great information for this month.

Usually Don recommends a book and often times I buy it. In the past he has recommend some really great books that I have listened (I love to two or three times -Freakonomics, Made to Stick and Three Cups of Tea.

Today he recommended a book that I am already reading; The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. It IS fantastic. I have been a fan of Pollan's since I read The Botany of Desire two years ago. It was at the time and may still be one of the most interesting books I have ever read.

Once you read The Omnivore's Dilemma you will never feel right about eating corn fed animals again. I have noticed the the term corn fed has become a marketing slogan , as if it is better for us or higher quality.

It may be a lot of things but it is certainly neither of those. But that is for you to decide.
