Dan Pashman, creator of food podcast "The Sporkful," will eat almost anything but only following unique specifications to achieve his high personal standard. He writes, “My friends who have known me for a long time know that I will always start rebuilding any sandwich and rearranging it." Indeed, "Eat More Better" engagingly combines math and science to analyze the intricacies of everyday meals: how much sauce various types of pasta will hold, the proper way to layer a sandwich to prevent slippage and the ideal way to pour milk into cereal.

Both witty and logical, Pashman's recommendations really will revolutionize readers' eating habits. He argues that one should serve grilled cheese vertically on its end instead of flat on a plate. It looks odd but it prevents soggy bread caused by condensation created when the hot sandwich touches the cold dish. Pashman also advocates for eating cupcakes upside down because the frosting tastes more pronounced closer to your tongue. In the same vein, putting cheese under the patty of a burger instead of on top will accentuate its flavour.

Arranged like a high-school science textbook with diagrams, pull-out sections, and fun facts, "Eat More Better" both entertains and informs, providing ingenious advice while never taking itself too seriously.
