Michael Pollan's new book, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, should be available in bookstores now. I haven't picked up a copy yet -- and I'm a little backed up in my food reading, besides -- but here are two reviews:

Janet Maslin of the New York Times offers a rave review.

Laura Shaprio has a mostly positive review at Slate, though she does a good job of pointing out the shortcomings of Pollan's general technique -- namely, a certain pie-in-the-sky idealism about how we can achieve the sort of diet he envisions.
