10 billion reasons not to buy this book, 1 July 2013
Having read the Guardian article I thought I would give the book a go. It appealed to me as taking on a topic such as the problems faced with a rapidly expanding population seemed a wothwhile cause. What I got was something not that much longer than the article for which I had to pay nothing. The book told me nothing new. There was some pretty pictures and graphs. The old rhetoric on climate change (of which I am neither ardent believer or denier) and some dubious figures about how much water you need to make a burger or a chocolate bar. The advice given by the author in relation to what to do about the impending disaster - teach your children how to use a gun. Please do not buy this book.
