Jane Goodall, the chimpanzee lady, gives an overview of the issues with food, water, transportation of the food, etc. in this book. She does a good general job of explaining the issues. She discusses how crops are raised and used, how animals are raised and treated, genetic engineering, organic growing practices, how food is distributed, fast food and water! She uses an anecdotal style with facts and studies to back the stories up. However, the facts are not always referenced in a way the one could easily follow up. Overall, I liked the amount of information she conveyed in a very readable way.

As always, Jane Goodall gives lots of information without overwhelming the reader. She shares lots of personal experiences with us (the conversation she had about people sweating or not sweating while eating hot food is hilarious!) while giving us important facts about the food industry that we may not have ever questioned. Unless you truly don't care about anyone or anything (including yourself), you will undoubtedly come away with a new sense of your responsibilities in your eating habits. For those of us who wish to change ourselves to be the best that we can be, this is a wonderful book. It is easy to read but packed with information and Jane's personality really comes through in every sentence of the book. Very well done, as usual.

This book really got me thinking about the food that my family eats, where it comes from, the effects on animals and the planet, and things I can do to make a difference.
