Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America


Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America (usually shortened to Don't Eat This Book) is a book by Morgan Spurlock, a writer and documentary filmmaker known for his work in Super Size Me. The book is a follow up to the film.

Plot

The book starts off with some statistics on American spending habits and why certain things are there (i.e. the warning label) and it eventually concentrates on the American eating habits and some references to his movie. It also talks briefly about how McDonald's started and how much trouble many of their CEOs attempt to carry on Ray Kroc's legacy.
