I love Jane Goodall, I like the cause behind the book, it's just a little meandering for me. Nothing much that is new. ( )

An interesting discussion of GMOs, philosophy of food. ( )

This is an excellent book for people wanting to eat healthy. Goodall describes clearly why it is important to eat organic and local. She also is very clear why farming practices are important not only for what we eat, but the for the environment as well.

Oh dear. This book was in a list of similarly-themed books that I found in the New York Times Magazine (I think). I'm afraid it's a stellar example of expert-gone-wrong, sort of like the Linus Pauling Vitamin C thing. Jane Goodall knows a lot about chimpanzees, and she obviously cares about our food choices and their impact on the planet. But the book is a total hodgepodge of everything from reminiscences about eating canned pineapple in the air raid shelter during the Blitz to an incredibly naive chapter telling us that my goodness! people in different countries eat different kinds of food! My resolute omnivorousness probably made me less sympathetic to her championing of a vegetarian diet, as well. Spend your time reading her books on chimpanzees if you want to read Jane Goodall. ( )

A thoughtful examination of the complex process whereby today's humans acquire the food and drink to sustain us, often to the significant detriment of our planet and other sentient beings. While a lot of the news is grim, Goodall manages to dispense her information with compassion and empowering practical suggestions. Expectedly, a significant portion of the text is dedicated to animal cruelty issues, especially in factory farming settings, however Goodall treats the carnivores in her readership with her customary respect and does not bludgeon steak lovers for their choice. Rather, she focuses on educating every food consumer to keep in mind that each meal is a vote for the type of planet we want to live on and changing one item on your plate (or the method used to grow it) can make a huge difference when multipled over time. I found the David vs. Goliath analogies a little overwrought at times (not ALL successful multinational corporations are bad, just as not ALL small, independent farms are good), but that was a minor annoyance in an otherwise powerful book. I appreciated the comprehensive approach she took to approaching the human nutrition chain as a whole: soil, water, seed, plant, protein & dairy, etc, as well as the populations who determine how those resources are foraged, cultivated, harvested and sold/traded. Monsanto executives probably won't find much to love in these pages and sensitive PETAites might not be able to stomach some of the barnyard atrocities, but I'd recommend it to just about everyone else.
