really liked it
Read in August, 2008

The End of Food offers a deeper look at the global food system than any previous book I have read. At times it reminded me of Confessions of an Economic Hitman and The Omnivore's Dilemma combined into one. Mixing solid writing with a behind the scenes look at the geo-political systems that control our food, Paul Roberts describes the harsh reality of the food system being pushed to the edge. With detailed citations and succinct analysis, Roberts fills in the details where The Omnivore's Dilemma left them out.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to understand our food system and how it will be shaping our lives in the future.
