“Thought-provoking....[Stuffed] will certainly get people talking and thinking.”


“An Insider’s Look at Who’s (Really) Making America Fat and How the Food Industry Can Fix It,” Stuffed by food industry executive Hank Cardello exposes how the board room decisions and slick marketing machines of restaurant chains, supermarket companies, and food packagers along with failed governmental regulations and misleading media coverage have spurred the current obesity epidemic. Written with Doug Garr, Stuffed is the most important book on the American way of eating since the classic Fast Food Nation, and it offers clear solutions on how to work with the food industry to reverse what has become the most serious health crisis in our country today.
