In his latest debunking project (after The Culture of Fear), sociologist Glassner argues that frequent sensational headlines and scientific controversies about obesity, fast food, and food safety have left many Americans bewildered about what to eat. Glassner’s well-researched and wide-ranging commentary on American eating habits and food-related beliefs offers a welcome antidote to such confusion by examining the veracity of numerous food myths. Casting his clear-eyed, critical gaze on nutrition researchers and reformers, food writers, and corporate food marketers, Glassner succeeds in making a persuasive case that Americans take their concern over healthy eating to unnecessarily extreme levels.

Dr. Barry Glassner is the author of the new book, The Gospel of Food. He is also the author of the highly acclaimed and bestseller The Culture of Fear, named a “Best Book of the Year” by the Los Angeles Times. A Professor of Sociology at the University of Southern California (and a former journalist and editor for ABC radio news), Glassner has appeared on Oprah, Today, Hardball, Nightline, The O’Reilly Factor, and was featured in Michael Moore’s Academy Award winning film, Bowling for Columbine.
