Fast Food Nation - anyone read it? Thoughts?

I'm reading Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser right now. I'm only a third through, and already I'm slightly appalled and also at the same time intrigued by the observation and points he is making.

Basically, he is drawing conclusion the (ill) effects of fast food and its culture on this country's eating habits, labor practices, business philosphoy and even city planning and building construction. The effects are far reaching and seemly pentrating to every corner or our society and almost to every corner of this world. Sort of scary...

Anybody else read it?
