How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence (2019)
A New York Times Notable Book The #1 New York Times bestseller.A brilliant and brave investigation into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs–and the spellbinding story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and…
Because in the so-called Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion–most of what we’re consuming today is longer the product of nature but of food science. The result is what Michael Pollan calls the American Paradox: The more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we see to become.
What should we have for dinner?
Eating doesn’t have to be so complicated. In this age of ever-more elaborate diets and conflicting health advice, Food Rules brings welcome simplicity to our daily decisions about food. Written with clarity, concision, and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollan’s trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page, accompanied by a concise explanation.
In his articles and in best-selling books such as The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan has established himself as one of our most important and beloved writers on modern man’s place in the natural world. A new literary classic, Second Nature has become a manifesto not just for gardeners but for environmentalists everywhere.
**Now a docu-series streaming on Netflix, starring Pollan as he explores how cooking transforms food and shapes our world. Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney executive produces the four-part series based on Pollan’s book, and each episode will focus on a different natural element: fire, water, air, and earth. **In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen.
The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World (2002)
Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers’ genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship.
“A room of one’s own: Is there anybody who hasn’t at one time or another wished for such a place, hasn’t turned those soft words over until they’d assumed a habitable shape?” When Michael Pollan decided to plant a garden, the result was the acclaimed bestseller Second Nature.
Food. There’s plenty of it around, and we all love to eat it. So why should anyone need to defend it? Because in the so-called Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion–most of what we’re consuming today is longer the product of nature but of food science.
Cómo cambiar tu mente / How to Change Your Mind: Lo que la nueva ciencia de la psicodelia nos enseña sobre la conciencia, la muerte, la adicción, la depresión y la transcendencia (Spanish Edition) (2019)
Cuando Michael Pollan se propuso investigar por qué el LSD y la psilocibina (el componente activo de las setas alucinógenas) proporcionan un enorme alivio a personas que padecen condiciones de difícil tratamiento como el trastorno por estrés postraumático, la depresión o la adicción, no tenía la intención de escribir lo que es sin lugar a dudas su libro más personal.
“What’s for dinner?” seemed like a simple question—until journalist and supermarket detective Michael Pollan delved behind the scenes. From fast food and big organic to small farms and old-fashioned hunting and gathering, this young readers’ adaptation of Pollan’s famous food-chain exploration encourages kids to consider the personal and global health implications of their food choices.
In a few short years, Michael Pollan has completely transformed America’s understanding of eating. Now, Pollan on Food collects the New York Times–bestselling author’s three masterworks into one memorable package. First, the groundbreaking book that started it all, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, in which Pollan turns his own omnivorous mind to the seemingly straightforward question of what we should have for dinner.
