A- " An] engaging exploration of the ways American eating habits have changed over the past half century." --Entertainment Weekly

"Grocery not only offers insights on how we produce, distribute and buy food, but seeks ways of understanding our changing relationship with what we eat and how we get it." --"All Things Considered," National Public Radio
Prominently featured in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and The Atlantic, and on NPR and CBS This Morning, when first released in hardcover, Grocery has been praised by critics as "an illuminating journey through and behind the grocery store" and called "informative and inspiring." Ruhlman's thoroughly researched examination of the grocery store and its place in our ever-shifting food landscape, now available in paperback, is by turns personal, political, and practical in its focus. His profile of the Cleveland-based family-run chain Heinen's provides the perfect lens through which to examine our evolving attitudes about food and how these echo larger changes in American culture.
