Quite a few of Michael Pollan's books have been very appealing to me.
Pollan's books that I like the most were mainly published at least a decade ago. I feel as if I learned much more from reading them. They included much more interesting research, for example, his studies of the life and times of Johnny Appleseed and his interviews with experts about baking bread and making fermented foods to name just a couple of themes. The books I most enjoyed:
- The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World. 2001.
- The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals. 2006.
- In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. 2008.
- Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation. 2013. (Also a Netflix series)
