Michael Pollan interviewed by Jon Stewart. How can that be anything but perfectly entertaining?
Pollan is promoting his newest book. Yes, you loved him for The Omnivore’s Dilemma. And you probably enjoyed In Defense of Food. His newest book is more like a pamphlet. It’s called Food Rules, and is on sale at Amazon for a mere $5.50. The new book contains 64 food rules which Pollan collected from people around the world. The few I’ve read are simple, funny, and fairly well on-target. I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest to see whether they’re all as good.
The segment began with Jon Stewart asking a straightforward question: Name one over-arching rule that summarizes the book.
“This is going to sound weird,” Pollan answered, “but it’s eat food.”
They then go on to discuss the difference between real food and edible food-like substances.
It only gets better from there. Watch the whole 6 minute segment below:
