Can a man live on fast food alone?

Morgan Spurlock tried to do just that. For thirty days, he ate nothing but McDonald’s as part of an investigation into the effects of fast food on American health. The resulting documentary earned him an Academy Award® nomination and a worldwide release that broke box-office records.

But there is much more to this story than Spurlock’s good-humored “McSickness.” In Don’t Eat This Book, he examines what’s happening across the country–in schools, hospitals, and homes–and explores school lunch programs, the marketing of fast food, and the sharp decline in emphasis on physical education. Spurlock 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. He interviews experts in twenty U.S. cities–from surgeon generals and kids to lawmakers and marketing gurus–who share their research, opinions, and “gut feelings” on our expanding girth and what we can all do to offset a health crisis of supersized proportions.

I liked supersize me but this book on CD is an overdose. I've been listening to MS's voice for over 10 hours. By now I'm losing my mind. He's so cocky and slimy.
