Can man live on fast food alone? Morgan Spurlock tried to do just that. For thirty days, he ate nothing but three "squares" a day from McDonald's as part of an investigation into the effects of fast food on American health. The resulting documentary film, Super Size Me, won him resounding applause and a worldwide release that broke box-office records. Audiences were captivated by his experiment, during which he gained twenty-five pounds, his blood pressure skyrocketed, and his libido all but disappeared. But this story goes far beyond his own "Mc-Sickness": he traveled across the country, into schools, hospitals, and people's homes, to investigate school lunch programs, the marketing of fast food, and the declining emphasis on health and physical education. He interviewed experts in medicine, nutrition, law, and marketing. He looks at why fast food is so tasty, cheap, and ultimately seductive, and what Americans can do to turn the rising tide of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes that have accompanied its ever-growing popularity.… (mais)

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. At first I thought he was going to look at various fast food restaurants, then I thought he was going to just go over his movie, but it becomes clear that this books is, as another reviewer here puts it, an off-shoot of his movie.

I have heard about "Super Size Me", but I'm not sure it's something I want to watch. I was glad that his book describes his routine as well as elaborating on what happened after the movie was released and the response of the fast food industry. It was interesting how threatened they seemed to feel and Spurlock's responses to criticisms to his work.

It's a quick, fast read that touches upon the fast food industry, nutrition, health, school lunches and more. At times I felt it was a little too informal and I wished he had more endnotes denoting his citations. He has a few appendices, which are helpful.

If you're a fan of books such as "Fast Food Nation," and "Mindless Eating" or liked his documentary, you'll like this book. ( )

I love you, Morgan! First, I watched your documentary, "Super Size Me," and swore off fast food for months, then I found out about this book, which chronicles the before, during and after of the documentary process. It's a real eye-opener. ( )
