This paper presents a critical analysis of Eric Schlosser's book, "Fast Food Nation". The paper examines the writer's thoroughness in presenting the fast food industry as one of the most corrupt industries. The paper contends that the book is one-sided, not illustrating the positive aspects of the fast food industry.

From the Paper:

"As a first criticism, one may notice that the author writes some 350 pages on the subject of fast food and the fast food industry finding almost no positive aspects whatsoever. It isn't much to say that, at the end of the book, you will be able to assimilate the fast food industry with some of the most criminal and degrading industries in the world, drug and human traffic, for example. It is not necessarily his vehemence (which almost doesn't exist throughout the book, as I will refer to further below), but the thoroughness with which he covers the disturbing aspects in the fast food industry, ranging from the managers and founders who barely have a high school diploma, to the "overworked and underpaid teenage workers" and to the chemicals that are behind the tasty flavors we find in fast food outlets."
