By Pollan, Michael




In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto is a 2008 book by Michael Pollan. It was number one on the New York Times Non-Fiction Best Seller List for six weeks.

Strange New Worlds: The Search for Alien Planets and Life beyond Our Solar System

Jayawardhana, Ray

Princeton. 2011. Princeton University Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN:9780691142548. 288 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - AN INSIDER’S LOOK AT THE CUTTING-EDGE SCIENCE OF TODAY’S PLANET HUNTERS. Soon astronomers expect to find alien Earths by the dozens in orbit around distant suns. Before the decade is out, telltale signs that they harbor life may be found. If they succeed, the ramifications for all areas of human thought and endeavor— from religion and philosophy to art and biology—are breathtaking. In Strange New Worlds, renowned astronomer Ray Jayawardhana brings news from the front lines of the epic quest to find extrasolar planets—and alien life—beyond our solar system. Only in the last fifteen years, after millennia of speculation, have astronomers begun to discover planets around other stars—hundreds in fact, but the hunt to find a true Earth-like world goes on. In this book, Jayawardhana vividly recounts the stories of the scientists and the remarkable breakthroughs that ushered in this extraordinary age of exploration. He describes the latest findings—including his own—that are challenging our view of the cosmos and casting new light on the origins and evolution of planets and planetary systems. He reveals how technology is rapidly advancing to support direct observations of Jupiter-like gas giants and super-Earths—rocky planets several times the mass of our own planet—and how astronomers use biomarkers to seek possible life on other worlds. Strange New Worlds provides an insider’s look at the cutting-edge science of today’s planet hunters, our prospects for discovering alien life, and the debates and controversies at the forefront of extrasolar-planet research. ‘If you have ever wanted to know how astronomers are going to find an Earthlike planet, this engaging book explains it all. Not only is Strange New Worlds fantastic storytelling about the checkered and dramatic history of exoplanet discovery, but it also gives a compelling description of the path to future discoveries.’ —Sara Seager, author of Exoplanet Atmospheres. inventory #37849 ISBN: 9780691142548.

In Defense of Food An Eaters Manifesto

Michael Pollan

Penguin. Paperback. New. Paperback. 244 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.4in. x 0.7in.In his hugely influential treatise The Omnivores Dilemma, Pollan traced a direct line between the industrialization of our food supply and the degradation of the environment. His new book takes up where the previous work left off. Examining the question of what to eat from the perspective of health, this powerfully argued, thoroughly researched and elegant manifesto cuts straight to the chase with a maxim that is deceptively simple: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. But as Pollan explains, food in a country that is driven by a thirty-two billion-dollar marketing machine is both a loaded term and, in its purest sense, a holy grail. The first section of his three-part essay refutes the authority of the diet bullies, pointing up the confluence of interests among manufacturers of processed foods, marketers and nutritional scientists - a cabal whose nutritional advice has given rise to a notably unhealthy preoccupation with nutrition and diet and the idea of eating healthily. The second portion vivisects the Western diet, questioning, among other sacred cows, the idea that dietary fat leads to chronic illness. A writer of great subtlety, Pollan doesnt preach to the choir; in fact, rarely does he preach at all, preferring to lets the facts speak for themselves.

In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

Pollan, Michael

New York: Penguin Books, 2008. Later printing. Paperback. NEW. 244pp. 20 cm. White wrappers with orange backstrip. Includes bibliographical references and an index. New. Because in the so-called Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion-- most of what we're consuming today is no longer the product of nature but of food science. The result is what Michael Pollan calls the American Paradox: The more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we seem to become. With In Defense of Food, Pollan proposes a new (and very old) answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. Pollan's bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating."
