Anticancer
Anticancer by David Servan-Schreiber (Other)
A powerful argument [backed up by scientific studies] for the cancer fighting properties of certain foods and the role of diet and lifestyle in the explosion of cancer in the 20th & 21st centuries. The author, a scientist and doctor who developed brain cancer himself, while undergoing traditinal Western cancer treatment, searched for the changes he could make in his own health to understand and fight cancer using the body's own natural cancer-fighting capabilities. -- Added by nkennedy on 03/06/2014

Provence, 1970
Provence, 1970 by Luke Barr (1970s)
From the journals and letters of M.F.K. Fisher and the other food writers of this group, author Luke Barr, the grandson of M.F.K. Fisher's sister, Norah, engages the readers in this vivid account of the meeting of these very opinionated culinary stars in what he describes as a pivotal moment in American food culture. Anyone who is interested in the philosophy of food culture would enjoy this peek into the lives of these culinary legends. -- Added by nkennedy on 02/15/2014

The Engine 2 Diet
The Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn (2000s)
I've been reading all about the health benefits of a plant based diet and this book has been highly recommended in the literature. Foregoing meat and dairy, and concentrating on fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains might be a major dietary change for most people but Esselstyn makes a convincing argument for the major health improvments one can achieve. -- Added by nkennedy on 02/05/2014
