'... this brilliantly written book could become a classic. I emphatically recommend that it be required reading for any educational group or public service program which studies the environment. It is the ticket to our future. It is without parallel! Dana Ellis Hunnes presents an abundance of science-based evidence that should encourage us to think deeply about the multiple ways we humans degrade our planetary home. No reader can come away without feeling a sense of awe and urgency to do whatever we can to save our home, both individually and collectively ... we can make it happen entirely within a democratic, free-market society. We simply need the collective will to do so. Dr. Hunnes provides a rich collection of ideas on how to make this happen and how to do it now! ... It is well-nigh time for us to truly sense the future of our children and our grandchildren.' T. Colin Campbell, Cornell University, author of The China Study, Whole, and The Future of Nutrition: An Insider's Look at the Science, Why We Keep Getting It Wrong and How to Start Getting It Right
