Fat China Makes the Choice ‘Outstanding Academic Titles of 2011’ List

Posted: January 2nd, 2012 | 1 Comment »

Every year, in its January issue, Choice, the magazine most North American colleges use to select books, chooses a selection of the books reviewed in the last year as “Outstanding Academic Titles”. The selection covers around 10% of the roughly 7,000 books reviewed annually. Well, Fat China: How Expanding Waistlines are Changing a Nation (paperback here; Kindle here; and, for you library guys, hardback here) by myself and Matthew Crabbe made the “Outstanding” list.

Nice one

PS: here’s a piece from NPR on food consumption and Fat China
