Lennon Nersesian's decision to forgo the Presidency of the United States in order to avoid having to eat any foreign foods is documented in this hilarious memoir about the struggles of being a picky eater. From beef with broccoli (without the broccoli) to PB&J (without the J) Nersesian explores the challenges and the absurdities of a life lived in fear of flavor while also providing a voice to the hundreds of thousands of Americans diagnosed with selective eating disorder who are all too familiar with the phrase, "You don't know what you're missing". Diary of a Picky Eater explores the science of taste as Nersesian goes on a quest to cure his food neuroses, culminating in a 24 hour eating challenge testing the limits of his taste buds. Along the way, Nersesian experiences the consequences of eating around a soup and making scenes in a crowded restaurant when cream cheese ruins a first date and salad obstructs a potential business opportunity. Whether you're a food connoisseur or a fellow Neophobe suffering from selective eating disorder, Diary of a Picky Eater will make you never look at your taste buds the same again.
