First Person Non-Fiction

Another great example of non-fiction writing: The Art of Overeating.

The author, David Kessler, a former Commissioner of the FDA,  doesn’t just present fact and figures in his book. He doesn’t just report stories and anecdotes. He also tells his OWN story, questioning his own eating habits and drive to eat sugary, fatty, salty food.

Much like a novel, this book is written from the first-person point of view, making it more of a story and less like a treatise. Makes me want to keep reading (and eat less!)

Bravo!
