Jane Goodall is an amazing person and tireless advocate for the environment, which I love but I was disappointed in this book. I really felt I was slogging through it. I had to keep pushing myself forward until I just got stuck and couldn't read any farther. I have finally decided to let go, I'm not going to finish it.

I didn't learn much new except the information on farmed fish and shrimp. I've read quite a bit about factory livestock farming but this was new to me. The amount of antibiotics given to the farmed fish is SCARY and the stories about the destruction of mangroves to farm shrimp (that turned them into barren wastelands) were sad and disheartening. I hardly buy fish or shrimp anymore because the farmed animals are not sustainably raised and I'm not sure which species are over fished or not.
