Fast-food nation (Eric Schlosser)

A complete review of the food processing chain, from slaughterhouses and rendering plants to your local Golden Arches. The author obviously knows his subject, the whole book is extremely well documented and quite stylishly written for its genre - which makes it an easy and informative read. Guaranteed to put you off fast food for several weeks (if not forever). See also the good movie from the book (featuring Avril Lavigne as a tree-hugger).
