Cogs in the Great Machine Book Description :

Every book tells a story . . . And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today.

When Penguin published his expose Fast Food Nation in 2001, it sparked a storm in the fast food industry. This piece on the terrifying true cost of cheap meat shows why Schlosser has been instrumental in changing our attitudes to what we eat....
