So many books (you know the rest)
Fast Food Nation
by Eric Schlosser
Published in 2001 (I finished it on November 20, 2002)
A stunning read. I rarely visit fast food joints, but now I have more solid reasons than “The food is fattening.” It’s a true wakeup call to a world where the golden arches is the most recognized symbol. This book should be on everyone’s must read list. And I wouldn’t mind seeing it as required reading in every classroom.
