Book Review of Omnivore’s Dilemma The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan was written with a goal to confront the misperception of every omnivore, or human being about the decision of what we should eat when nature itself has so much to offer us. The book start by asking the reader a modest and rhetorical question that is intended to make him or her think more about their growing lifestyle and the taste they have for food. Mr. Pollan asks his readers to answer this question, “what should we have for dinner?” and then he goes on to express to his readers just how complicated the answer to this question could be. The Omnivore’s Dilemma is split into three different parts: Industrial/Corn, Pastoral/Grass, Personal/The Forest, each of which brings out its very own thought-provoking views & trends in the food chain. Part one is Industrial/Corn, it describes how corn is the most important ingredient in the industrial food chain, while the second part, Pastoral/Grass talks about organic farming.
