Books - Plenty and Appetite for Profit

I'm re-reading Plenty/The 100 Mile Diet by Smith and Mackinnon, and I had better hurry up because I have another book on reserve at the library called Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines our Health and How to Fight Back by Michele Simon. I think this book by Simon will be right up there with one of my favorite books Food Politics by Marion Nestle. I'll let you know.

I admit to finding it "curiouser and curiouser" that the vast majority of people who are writing books about these important food policies are not within the nutrition community per se.
