The PBS special (October 28, 8pm) is based on the book by Michael Pollan, whose role in in the documentary "Food, Inc." helped change my perspective on food and my own eating habits, enhancing my respect for the earth and our place in/on it.
I've yet to read any of Pollan's books, but I've heard rave reviews for "The Omnivore's Dilemma."
Go to the PBS site to see a preview, videos and images of desire: sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control.
