I just read Morgan Spurlock's "Don't Eat This Book." Spurlock is the director and star of the movie "Super Size Me" about how McDonalds food is going to kill us all. The book builds upon that, with some stuff about the movie, and a lot of stuff about food in general and how all this processed fast food is terrible for us, and Americans overeat and we shouldn't and we're all gonna die. It's nothing revolutionary, but it's a solid read, and does a good job of taking they key points from a bunch of other books -- Fast Food Nation, for example -- and distilling it down. If he wrote the book himself, he's not half bad. It's entertaining and breezy, a quick read and hard to put down.
