I liked this book well enough. It was a bit of an overview of what's wrong with our food production methods, and how local food and organic are good. I found it all agreeable, but I was less excited about the recipes which were half the book. They sounded good, but not anything I was dying to run out and try. Also, I was expecting more emphasis on urban living, since I do live in a city and the title suggests it, but didn't find anything particularly related to what we can do in a city that would differ from life in the suburbs or the country. I actually prefer The Edge of Hope, a book this author wrote with her mother, and that I have also reviewed here.
