PENGUIN BOOKS FAST FOOD NATION ‘What makes Fast Food Nation different is that it is not the predictable anti-meat, anti-fat, anti-additives, anti-non-dairy creamer, anti-have-any-fun rant against McDonald’s… it is meticulously researched and powerfully argued’ Observer ‘Schlosser could do for the fast food industry what Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring did for producers of pesticides’ The Times ‘Eric Schlosser may be the Upton Sinclair for this age of mad cow disease… [He 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 ‘An elegiac exposé of how burgers, fries and sodas came to symbolize America’ The New York Times Book Review ‘Required reading’ Express ‘One of the best reasons to read Eric Schlosser’s blazing critique of the American fast-food industry is his bleak portrayal of the alienation of millions of low-paid employees… It would be wrong to portray Schlosser’s book as just another anti-McDonald’s diatribe. It is deeper and broader than that’ London Review of Books ‘A frightening investigation into America’s fast food industry’ Independent ‘Compelling… Fast Food Nation will not only make you think twice before eating your next hamburger… it will also make you think about the fallout that the fast food industry has had on America’s social and cultural landscape’ The New York Times ‘Our fast food executives are in for some sleepless nights’ Food Magazine ‘Makes for very unsettling reading. A brilliant, access-all-areas dissection of the McDonaldization of society’ Metro London ‘His eye is sharp, his profiles perceptive, his prose thoughtful but spare. This is John McPhee behind the counter’ Washington Post ‘A damning critique of the junk-food business’ Vogue ‘Fast Food Nation is witness to the rigour and seriousness of the best American journalism, readable, reliable and extremely carefully done’ Daily Telegraph ‘Skilful and persuasive’ Economist ‘If the idea of a three-storey, illuminated Ronald McDonald strikes you as a blight on the landscape, this book is for you’ Globe and Mail
