Reviews

Hooked shows how food manufacturers have taken advantage of our habits, our biology, our psychological quirks, and our ignorance to transform foods into addictive substances. He takes us into laboratories and courtrooms, kitchens and legislatures-and shows us how we can win our freedom back * Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit *
Michael Moss delivers again with a deep, well-written investigation into food addiction and mass food production. With so many companies competing for our attention, dollars, and stomachs, it's more important than ever to educate ourselves about food and arm ourselves against efforts to get us hooked. This is a very important read for anyone who cares about their health * Sylvia Tara, author of THE SECRET LIFE OF FAT *
No one has done more to reveal the intentional and underhanded ways in which food companies manipulate our desires and eating habits than Michael Moss. In Hooked, he shows how these ongoing crimes must be challenged and stopped. A must-read for anyone who cares about food, general well-being, and justice * Mark Bittman, author of ANIMAL, VEGETABLE, JUNK *
Excellent... blends investigative reporting, science and foodie writing to argue that the processed food industry is no different from tobacco companies * New York Times *
