What is food to you? Friend or foe or earthly delight? Today's topic is how-to books on nutrition and cuisine.

Gerald, Cheyenne, and Tom are joined in studio by our fellow writer Sarah Ambrosio, who is planning to coauthor a "couples cookbook" with her new husband. We help her think through some of the questions she's been asking about how to get a how-to book done.

After the break, we have an interview with Ruth Frechman, registered dietitian nutritionist and award-winning author, who wrote The Food Is My Friend Diet. She’s going to talk not only about how to be smart about food choices, but also how her book has become her business calling card for building her professional practice.
