Popular books written by Pollan: Pollan is well-known for a number of books, especially Botany of Desire and The Omnivore's Dilemma.
What makes him stand out: Readers enjoy Pollan's research and perspective about issues of health through nutrition mixed with larger cultural issues of food production. He presents unsettling truths, but does so in a manner that is readable and consistently fascinating.
