really liked it
Read in July, 2010

Definitely thought provoking and concern inducing. The book was selected as the main component of the summer assignment for a course I teach; it definitely offers a lot of material for classroom discussion. For the environmentally-conscious recreational reader, you should know that the author is a British journalist and as such the writing style is a bit unique. The chapters take an interesting angle on the issues and include a fair amount of data for those who like to evaluate the impact of numbers. Charles Clover is not shy about his opinions, which can be either refreshing or a bit wearing depending on your point of view. I particularly found the way in which he addresses the foodie culture toward the end of the book particularly eye-opening.
