An important book. Very handy and effective in equipping one with knowledge about the challenges emanated out of population growth. It is not effective only to the extent of informing us about the challenges, it awakens our conscience of our role and responsibility as an individual to put our share into the greater effort to make this world a worth living place for us and our generations to come. I will keep this book with me to take benefit from it.
