Fast Food Nation

The Dark Side of the American Meal
by Eric Schlosser

This well researched, lively bestseller by award-winning journalist, Eric Schlosser takes readers to the underbelly of the fast food giants and examines how America’s obsession with fast food has shaped both bodies and culture.  Fast Food Nation is an informative and thoughtful investigation that exposes the high price we pay for convenience, and if indeed you-are-what-you-eat, then we are in big trouble.

“…Schlosser is a serious and diligent reporter… [Fast Food Nation] is a fine piece of muckraking, alarming without being alarmist.”—New York Times Book Review

Fast Food Nation is the kind of book that you hope young people read because it demonstrates far better than any social studies class the need for government regulation, the unchecked power of multinational corporations and the importance of our everyday decisions.”—Publishers Weekly
