amazing. though i think i might discourage the more squeamish of my ice cream eating, cigarette smoking, bread consuming friends from watching it.

I got this book for Christmas! It's absolutely fascinating.

The book is really wonderful, though I wish it were less than $61, which makes it a design object rather than something that could be read & discussed by everyone as is Michael Pollan. There's an older video (caution: it autostarts) at the Index Design Awards pages. There's also an essay on the book at Design Observer.
