    When life for the entire universe and planet turns on its end and like everyone else you "have nothing to do" while your place of work is closed and you are in #COVID19 #socialisolation, superspeed readers like me can read 250+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today. (I have played a "zillion games" of scrabble, done a "zillion crosswords" and I AM BORED!!!) I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the When life for the entire universe and planet turns on its end and like everyone else you "have nothing to do" while your place of work is closed and you are in #COVID19 #socialisolation, superspeed readers like me can read 250+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today.

I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. Let’s Ask Marion is a considered and thoughtful question-and-answer collection that showcases the expertise of food politics powerhouse Marion Nestle in exchanges with environmental advocate Kerry Trueman. These informative essays show us how to advocate for food systems that are healthier for people and the planet, moving from the politics of personal dietary choices to community food issues, and finally to matters that affect global food systems. Nestle has been thinking, writing, and teaching about food systems for decades, and her impact is unparalleled. Let’s Ask Marion provides an accessible survey of her opinions and conclusions for anyone curious about the individual, social, and global politics of food. As a librarian who currently works from home for a library that is currently stuffed into a room off of a community kitchen/workspace (renovations are on hold due to $$$ issues) I spend a lot of time studying food systems, community food issues, food deserts, etc. etc. this book was right up my alley. Marion is a powerhouse of smarts and information and this book is a fascinating albeit disjointed read. I enjoyed a previous book "food politics" and I have enjoyed reading her smart, relevant opinions (on Twitter) of the current food crisis affecting Americans who are lining up for hours at food banks as almost everyone is off work due to #COVID19 and they don't have any money once they pay for the mortgage, car payments, utilities, etc. A fascinating read for anyone into food and history - it kept me enthralled and now my sister has stolen my kindle to read it, too. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "🙏-ed Social Influencer Millennials/#BachelorNation survivors/Tik-Tok and YouTube Millionaires/etc. " on Instagram and Twitter... Get a real job, people!) so let's give it 🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕

    So as an overview, this was helpful (that chart of federal agencies with various conflicting responsibilities in the food system...oy), but I would have appreciated two additions to fill some holes in the content: 1) Are there any other countries that have a coherent, humane food system like Nestle envisions? It'd be helpful to know if such a thing is feasible at all. 2) If political advocacy is indeed the prime way to change the U.S. food system, it would have been nice for one of the "question So as an overview, this was helpful (that chart of federal agencies with various conflicting responsibilities in the food system...oy), but I would have appreciated two additions to fill some holes in the content: 1) Are there any other countries that have a coherent, humane food system like Nestle envisions?

    Incredible read! Anyone who is interested in food on any level should definitely read this book! Highly recommend. Interested in food? Then you should be involved in food politics. Everything is political whether we realize it or not. We need more good food advocates! Marion Nestle is one of the best!
