Very interesting, and should you read this you will never look at your bananas the same way again. I like it when a book does that to my mind.
Keoppel raises some very good questions about GMO foods - specifically in the case of the banana. I had no idea at, when I started reading this book, how essential the banana is for survival in many parts of the world. Truth to tell, there was a lot of new information in this book for me. Bananas are so ubiquitous that I had never really thought much about the wheres and hows of the fruit. It makes me wonder what other daily items (food in particular) have these bizarre histories as I take them for granted. I know Salt does.
Anyway, though it took me a long time to read fully, I did enjoy the read. Koeppel has a very fair and lucid way of writing, in which one can still feel his passion for the subject.
