Cooked by Michael Pollan (2013)
I like Michael Pollan. I have seen him on television, heard him on the radio, agree with most of what he writes and thinks and says. But Cooked I just couldn't get into. Mostly, for some books, for some kinds of books, I have to be in a certain frame of mind. That frame of mind didn't exist for me with Cooked right now. Maybe I will come back to it. When I'm feeling more slow food-ish, organic-ish, simplicity-ish. For now, all I kept thinking about as I read it was "I'm going to feel guilty for something as I read this, and I don't want to feel that way right now." Frame of mind.
