book: Fast Food Nation

i had mixed feelings about Fast Food Nation
by Eric Schlosser.

on the one hand the book had a lot of great information about nutrition, labor standards, and the history of fast food entrepreneurs. on the other, it was clouded with a lot of left-wing dribble about how Republicans in congress and President Reagan are responsible for making America fat.

overall, the book read more like a political campaign than a serious piece of journalism which presents all sides. i’d like to read a book that looks at the fast food industry with more objectivity and would appreciate any recommendations.

summation: skip this book.
