Swindled - Bee Wilson An interesting and fairly thorough book about food cheats through history. The author comes to the conclusion that this sort of thing is inevitable, though he is hopeful individuals can be educated to protect themselves at least. I tend to think information could be used more effectively here, but agree education is important too.

This book was dry at times, and a few more in-depth or recent examples might have served better than the broad overview taken. Overall a pretty good book.
