Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal by Eric Schlosser
Genre(s): Nonfiction, Industries & Professions, Business & Investing, Hospitality Travel & Tourism, Biographies & Primers
ew York Times Bestseller,
With a New Afterword
“Schlosser has a flair for dazzling scene-setting and an arsenal of startling facts . . . Fast Food Nation points the way but, to resurrect an old fast food slogan, the choice is yours.”—Los Angeles Times
In 2001, Fast Food Nation was published to critical acclaim and became an international bestseller. Eric Schlosser’s exposé revealed how the fast food industry has altered the landscape of America, widened the gap between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and transformed food production throughout the world. The book changed the way millions of people think about what they eat and helped to launch today’s food movement.
In a new afterword for this edition, Schlosser discusses the growing interest in local and organic food, the continued exploitation of poor workers by the food industry, and the need to ensure that every American has access to good, healthy, affordable food. Fast Food Nation is as relevant today as it was a decade ago. The book inspires readers to look beneath the surface of our food system, consider its impact on society and, most of all, think for themselves.
“As disturbing as it is irresistible . . . Exhaustively researched, frighteningly convincing . . . channeling the spirits of Upton Sinclair and Rachel Carson.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Schlosser shows how the fast food industry conquered both appetite and landscape.”—The New Yorker
Eric Schlosser is a contributing editor for the Atlantic and the author of Fast Food Nation, Reefer Madness, and Chew on This (with Charles Wilson).

Keith Harkin by Keith Harkin
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
eith Harkin is sure to be a Grammy winner for this debut CD. In an eclectic mix of styles, Keith’s Irish roots and unique musical vision shines through this collection of covers and original songs. You think only George Harrison could do justice to Here Comes The Sun? Think again! Keith’s version is both mystical and joyous. And Don Henley’s End of the Innocence? After you hear Keith’s rendition, Irish-flavored by Barry Kerr’s Uillean pipes and whistles, you’ll say “Don Who?” His duet with Colbie Caillat, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You is sweet, simple, and emotional.
Keith Harkin is, more than anything, a gifted songwriter. Poetry set to music, every song is a jewel. The two best songs on the album, Orange Moon and Rosa, beautifully showcase his skill as a lyricist and composer. In Orange Moon an upbeat, catchy tune masks conflicted yearning for lost love complicated by the pull of the road. Rosa is a tender love song, so poignant that the first notes bring me to tears at every listening. With every word he writes, Keith shares his heart and soul.
For those of us who have followed him since the Celtic Thunder juggernaut introduced him 4 ½ years ago, Keith’s debut album has been a long time coming. But, man, is it worth the wait!
