An invigorating and shocking beginning to a nutrition, consumer education, or media literacy course, this well-documented work paints a critical picture of the fast-food industry.

From stories of entrepreneurs (Ray Kroc, Carl Karcher et al.) to intensely graphic descriptions of "factories" where cattle become hamburger, Schlosser’s unsettling report forces readers to reflect before taking another bite. The book further probes working conditions in the industry, franchising practices, government regulation (or not), slick campaigns that target children, the nutritional value of fast food, diseases like E. coli, and seismic cultural changes wrought by our love affair with burgers, fries, and KFC. Includes a brief afterword by the author on the national changes since the first edition was released. Note: brief strong language.
