Written, seemingly, with mainly the American reader in mind, this is an excellent book, full of information and insights regarding issues that are already to a great extent global. It is, therefore, a pity that the publishers did not think it fit to produce a 'metric' version of the work, or at least to give the metric equivalents in brackets immediately after all all the inches, feet, miles, ounces and pounds.

In the vast middle class in which most of you reading this live, we have totally lost contact with the sources of our food. And when you do get back in touch with the realities of food - especially how it is all produced today - you realise that we are doing so much harm to our planet, our fellow animals and ourselves... This book is a good wake-up call and reality check. Get your head out of the sand!!

After reading this, you will think every meal differently. Through the food chain of 4 different meals (sometimes a bit long, but always witty), this book is a real journey into the history of eating, through hunting, gathering, small-scale farming or intensive monocultures. Every citizen going to the supermarket mindlessly should read this !
