Sorry not to be able to give more stars.

Although a true fan of "In Defense of Food" and "the Omnivore's Dilemma" and a dedicated home cook, I was disappointed here and didn't finish reading. Amidst Pollan's rhetoric of sacrifice and sanctification, hearths and altars, I just didn't find much that was news to me or very engaging. Maybe I will get back to it at some point to find out whether the second half of the book has more to offer.
Before starting this, I had listed to a great interview with Pollan, primarily about this book, on BBC radio's Food Programme. I recommend starting with that - I believe its still available as a Podcast. Maybe part of the problem is that the book's most interesting content can be condensed quite well into a 30-minute interview....
