The new book is THE HACKING OF THE AMERICAN MIND: the Science Behind the Corporate Takeover of Our Bodies and Brains. It was published by W. W. Norton, 2018 (256 pages) and it is an updated version of an earlier book published in 1998 about how the food industry was influencing Americans eating and health habits before the rise of social media.

It grew out of a popular and influential online lecture about the dangers of consuming too much sugar. It was published by Hudson Street Press, 2013 (i-v, 320 pages)
