    This book is like a modern day Silent Spring: it was absolutely necessary to be written and to educate the world, no matter how dark the topic becomes. With a range of startling facts and investigative journaling, Schlosser paints a murky picture of what the globalization of our food has become. He critically writes of corrupt systems, dangerous methods, and a way of living that the earth cannot support. Tracing a detailed history of the billion dollar fast food industry all the way back to the first drive-thru, this is a deeply thorough book that will change a person's entire worldview. Not for the faint of heart, but an absolute must in order to be educated of the industry's disturbing crimes against humanity. Also suggested: The Omnivores Dilemma by Micheal Pollen
