Whilst this book is not badly written and makes some good points, I am really surprised that it can be described as 206 pages. I read it in just over an hour, it contains endless pages of single paragraphs or lines, one page was a single word. If it were condensed it could probably fit on to 70 or so pages of large font size text. A large section of the book is also lacking proper referencing. For example in one section there are some pretty sensational claims about how much water it takes to produce certain things, without any explanation. I wouldn't, having read the book, think of it as a book. Its more of a (admittedly interesting and mostly well written) dissertation. Its a frame for what really needs far more in depth explanation and discussion. Some good points, but it lost my trust as soon as I realised it had been a little mis sold. I could spread this review over 80 pages, but it would hardly be an 80 page book. Ultimately this was unfortunately not worth the money.
