An open-eyed look at several potential solutions to our food production woes.

Well researched and well put together. A very enjoyable read.

This is a very insightful journey into the industry that provides us with our "daily bread"...I recommend anyone interested in what goes into their mouth read this book.

This guy sounds like he is full of BS. If you want a sustainable food system, shipping foods around the world will never be it, GMO will not be part of it (we are seeing problems already). The last thing we should do is export the American Factory Farm model. As for organic, it can be very high yield. Permaculture farms are great examples of this, and they are found in many climatic regions. In fact, permaculture has been able to reverse desertification.
This is definitely not a book I recommend reading. The one thing he does get right is the topic of subsidies, and how food activists must understand how heavily big agriculture is subsidized and work to to eliminate perverse subsidies.

I love people that love the truth and search hard for it.
I don't know if i would come to the same conclusions as he does....I am still thinking about it...a worthwhile read about world food issues.
