It was interesting and easy to read. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I found one or 2 innaccurate facts about milk production. I emailed the auther and got an instant reply..... although it is obviously too late to rectify the mistakes now the book is printed! I am a dairy farmer who made and sold cream and other dairy products myself and so I know the facts. This worries me about the other parts of the book about which I have no inside knowledge, but Ben Pratt's reply to my remarks was honest and informed.
