KIRKUS REVIEW

You can have your Cake and eat it' seventy-eleven reasons why junk foods are bad for you, the assorted ways you're inveigled into eating them, and a compendium of over 200 popular items--virtually all rated Tooth Rotters and dietary duds. We should cut down, says Lasky, and be more selective: Mister Goodbar, Payday, and Oh Henry! win nominations for his Hall of Fame. An entry for every flavor of Wrigley et al. gum seems a bit much of a bad thing, but the guide to fast-food chains is something else: McDonald's comes off as Michelin caliber, HoJo gets the drubbing it deserves. Incidental lore on the food processing industry too, for food cultists--the only ones likely to swallow all this glop.
