How we get hooked on junk food
This was by far one of my favourite reads of 2013. Moss, a season writer for the New York Times, did years of research and interviews with various big food companies to figure out the science behind how we find ourselves hooked on junk food. The result is a candid, revealing, often-shocking look at over 50 years of making food convenient and how it’s shaped our culture. A fascinating read for fans of other hits like Fast Food Nation. – Lora Grady, Associate Editor, Copy and Research
