Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock embarks on a journey to find out if fast food is making Americans fat.

He treks across the country interviewing a host of experts on fast food and a number of regular folk while downing McDonald's to try and find out why 37% of American are now overweight. Spurlock's grueling diet spirals him into a metamorphosis that will make you think twice about picking up another Big Mac
Don't eat this book : fast food and the supersizing of America by Morgan Spurlock( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can man live on fast food alone? Morgan Spurlock tried to do just that. For thirty days, he ate nothing but three "squares" a day from McDonald's as part of an investigation into the effects of fast food on American health. The resulting documentary film, Super Size Me, won him resounding applause and a worldwide release that broke box-office records. Audiences were captivated by his experiment, during which he gained twenty-five pounds, his blood pressure skyrocketed, and his libido all but disappeared. But this story goes far beyond his own "Mc-Sickness": he traveled across the country, into schools, hospitals, and people's homes, to investigate school lunch programs, the marketing of fast food, and the declining emphasis on health and physical education. He interviewed experts in medicine, nutrition, law, and marketing. He looks at why fast food is so tasty, cheap, and ultimately seductive, and what Americans can do to turn the rising tide of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes that have accompanied its ever-growing popularity

Where in the world is Osama Bin Laden? by Morgan Spurlock( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spurlock is a jittery father-to-be with a simple question: If OBL is behind 9/11 and all the ensuing worldwide chaos, then why can't we just catch him? And furthermore, why is his message so compelling to so many people? So the intrepid Spurlock kisses his anxious wife goodbye and - armed with a complete lack of knowledge, experience, or expertise - sets out to make the world safe for infantkind and find the most wanted man on earth. After boning up on his basic knowledge of OBL, Islam, and the Global War on Terror, he hits the Osama trail. He zigzags the globe, drawing ever closer to the heart of darkness near the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, where OBL is rumored to be hiding. Along the way he interviews imams and princes, refugees and soldiers, academics and terrorists. He visits European ghettos where youth aspire to global jihad, breaks the Ramadan fast with Muslims in Cairo, and rides in the bomb squad van in Tel Aviv. And then the fun really starts. A companion to the acclaimed documentary, Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden? delves even deeper than the film. What listeners will come away with is possibly the first-ever funny book about terrorism, as well as a greater understanding of a conflict that has cast a shadow across America and the world". --Amazon.com
