Eat Drink but We still need Change 8 septembre 2013
Par Lafayette - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was very happy when I won Eat Drink Vote through Goodreads.com. The book is an easy read of a multi-faceted and complicated subject of great interest, with many opinions and controversies; and the interweaved cartoons make for a thoughtful support for the author's views to demonstrate the broad scope. The short but clear essay format delivers on many levels and gives structure to this intricate topic and sets a great stage for discussion. This textbook quality in its approach also gives the reader the ammunition to dispute or counter the author's premises and conspiracy concepts and therein lays the weakness in this thoughtful lecture; the lack of solutions. Dr. Nestle stops short of discussing the "elephants-in-the-room" in food politics which are the only answers to her basic desire to correct a broken food system. She avoids either a libertarian approach coupled with better education [here her book could be used as a text] and/or national tax reform to stop food subsidies; all forms of corporate welfare, wealth inequities and political favors.
Finally, I must chastise Dr. Nestle for her first page diatribe about tomato paste, a topic which flares my nostrils as a scientist father of 4. Scientific argument would say Dr. Nestle should have fought for an amount of tomato paste equal to a single tomato. Their extreme of 4oz. was met and lost to the pizza slice because they were not prepared with the science [1 tomato = 1.5 oz. tomato paste] or the food's [the beloved pizza] importance to the school diet.
I have many positives about this book and I believe this cartoon editorial concept should be used by others whenever a complicated topic, which often attracts national attention is presented. For the general public, this format is clearer than the typical 200-400 page multi-redundant cries for justice and world correction and appreciates the power that a-picture-is-worth-a- thousand-words editorial punch of the world's great cartoonists. I'd be willing to bet this format in middle school and higher education would do wonders for topic clarity and communication skill development.

Best Picture (book) of the year 3 septembre 2013
Par David Wineberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Eat Drink Vote is a salute to cartoons and cartoonists. It is a collection of 250 or so cartoons, all on a food theme, framing Marion Nestle's unsurpassed mastery of the subject. I'd go farther than that. The cartoons take precedence, and the text simply accompanies them and sets them up, by adding framework, facts and figures. The whole thing could be a Marion Nestle presentation, with the cartoons being her powerpoint accompaniment. The text sets up the visual laughs. It's easy to read, easy to absorb, and hits home loud and clear.

My favorite cartoon pictures the new official American place setting: napkin, fork, knife, plate, and shovel. How elegantly eloquent.

The best quote is attributed to Tommy Thompson, as he resigned as Secretary of Health and Human Services: "I for the life of me cannot understand why terrorists have not attacked our food supply, because it is so easy to do." That was in 2004. Nothing has changed since.

The message that she gives the most play to is that eating less is bad for business. Everything the corporate food complex does is aimed at getting us to eat more, and more often. We now eat all day long, in meetings, in breaks, in front of the tv - anywhere, any time. That is dramatically different than any other period in history, and it is making a difference - in profits, in obesity, and in healthcare.

Marion Nestle hits all the hot button issues in one entertaining package. It's an excellent primer on the state of the nation's approach to food. It's a message that needs to be spread wider.

But while we get a thorough treatment of Eat and Drink, Vote remains unexplored....

Nice collection of issues - not too deep 10 octobre 2013
Par Kndl Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wonderful overview of food issues ranging from safety, technology, to policy. It is a basic text so people looking for a deeper dive into the issues of food policy may be disappointed.

Perfect for easing one into the food politics discussion 21 septembre 2013
Par aryxus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Food is getting to be a touchy subject... It seems everyone I speak with lately is on some food-related crusade. I like my fast food, and I'm too chicken (pun unintended) to watch movies like Forks Over Knives or Food, Inc. (and I have friends that champion one over the other, not to mention the warring factions of dieters and vegans and "you should only eat organic foods" and "don't you know how harmful organic farms are for the environment" .... ugh)

This book was the perfect way of easing myself into the roiling waters of food politics. Nestle is a highly respected writer, and placing her words among cartoons not only made a serious topic easier to digest (um. really, no pun intended), but also visually brought home some of her points with more impact than words alone.

In short, I highly recommend this book. Wish more serious writers would take such a light-hearted approach to such heavy topics!

Par Amanda E Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Marion Nestle is one of my favorite nutritionists. She is balanced and reasonable and rightfully calls to task government policies and deceptive marketing that encourage an "eat more" culture. The cartoons in this book are perfect for my economics class that I teach for students who respond better to visuals than text.
