Recipe for America: Why Our Food System Is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It by Jill Richardson
Recipe for America: Why Our Food System Is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It

zekwean, July 28, 2009

The unhelpful Publisher Weekly's review will prevent many a library and reader from reading this engaging and helpful book. The review is unbalanced, and unfair to the extensive research that went into the book. Jill does make the argument about costs and benefits of growing, selling and consuming more local foods, and she documents the research that caused her to reach her conclusions.

Only the segment of the corporate world that feels threatened by the movement towards local control of our food supply would fail to grasp or deny Jill's message about sustainability.
