3.0 out of 5 stars Good but..., January 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Everyone Eats: Understanding Food and Culture (Paperback)
I'm not a food or anthropology expert and the author definitely seems well educated and includes many interesting facts but I must say I was looking for some cross between Andrew Zimmern (Bizarre Foods) and Alton Brown (Good Eats) and what I got seemed heavily slanted to "We should all stop eating meat and feed the world." Not to sound cold hearted but assuming you actually bought this book because you care about feeding the world it should be noted that you will find nothing accept vague notions and catch 22 situations regarding how to go about it. Maybe the topic is too complex to really lay out a plan but it certainly is sickening to read without one after a while.

Welcome to the world of anthropology, where nothing is straightforward and most everything deals in the grey areas of life. In fact, welcome to social sciences as a whole!

Of course, I've not yet read this book, but it's on my list as a possible book for my anthropology courses.
