Everything you could want to know about the environmental impact of your food choices is gathered here in a well-organized and reader-friendly format. You can dip into it anywhere and learn something. Each topic ends with "What You Can Do" suggestions, so the book is not an intellectual exercise so much as a guidebook for step-by-step action.

Educational, insightful and fun to read!
For a first year vegetarian like myself this book was extremely benificial. It has information that you would have to dig and dig for right in an smoothly written book. This book will ignite your urge to live a sustainable life and reach for that common goal of reinventing our food system! This book may answer a question you never knew you had if you just pick it up and get reading!
