Praise

“A perfect marriage of economics and food. Tyler Cowen is my newest guilty pleasure.”—Rocco DiSpirito, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Now Eat This!

“Tyler Cowen’s latest book is a real treat, probably my favorite thing he’s ever written. It does a fantastic job exploring the economics, culture, esthetics, and realities of food and delivers a mountain of compelling facts. Most of all, it’s encouraging—not a screed, despite its occasionally serious arguments—and brings the fun back to eating. Delicious!”—Stephen J. Dubner, coauthor of Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics

“A gastronomic, economic, and philosophical feast from one of the world’s most creative economists. Tyler Cowen offers the thinking person’s guide to American food culture, and your relationships with food will be hugely enriched by the result.”—Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist and Adapt

“Part economic history . . . part guide to getting a better meal at home or a restaurant. Reconowned economist . . . Professor Cowen is an expert on the economics of culture and the arts.”—The New York Times Dining Section
