Praise For The Prince's Speech: On the Future of Food

“Chock full of important points about the pitfalls of the industrial food system and ways to address them...a handy guide to good talking points about the food system...this small book goes beyond laying out the facts (though it does that as well). Prince Charles conveys real empathy -- for those struggling to feed their families, and for those attempting to solve the world's hunger problem with genetically-modified crops and intensified agriculture. If we could all speak so knowledgeably and kindly of these issues, perhaps the global food debate would be a bit more measured and informed.” —
