This book had pretty basic info on how food affects the environment. If you read any books about the production of food, this won't have any new info. It does have some good points about small changes you can make to help the environment, but seemed like a "beginner" book to me
The sub title of this book should be: Food choices for a healthy planet and healthy people. There is also a good section outlining greener choices for household cleaners.
