I've only read 4% and cannot face reading further - the importance of this issue deserves far more professional treatment than this. It isn't structured well. The language is quite aggressive and rather repetitive. The facts are given in a sensationalist manner and not consistently supported by references, at times mixed with opinion. 2% in, a trio of solutions not linked to the text so far are provided, then again at 4%. The numerous authors clearly feel very passionately what needs to change but seem to trip over one another. Perhaps professional writing input would have been wise to help Oxfam make their points more effectively.

I've not used any of the techniques in the book, just bought it for reference really. Handy to have a read over if you're interested in that kind of thing.

HASH(0x8beaf564) out of 5 stars Oxfam-biased, but packed with good facts and charts. 19 Oct. 2011
By Ed Pegg Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Facts, facts, facts. The amount of farmlands and fresh water on Earth is limited, and often solutions follow the most profitable short-term solution instead of the best long-term solution. Areas at fringes of deserts tend to be overgrazed, adding to the problem of desertification. Meanwhile, as resources dwindle, the population is increasing. Seven billion now, and nine billion in the near future.

The book has a heavy bias towards Oxfam recommendations. I don't know the anti-Oxfam point of view, but most of the facts presented are noncontroversial. There are many, many facts given, often with excellent charts and tables. Much of the file size is due to these charts.

I spent some time looking for the Anti-Oxfam point of view. Some of their recommendations on Coffee have been controversial, but that's a tiny part of this book.

Recommended.

HASH(0x8d2bd0f0) out of 5 stars Eye Opening 20 April 2012
By Peter Kingston - Published on Amazon.com

Although this book reads a bit like a "sales pitch" for the Oxfam point of view, I found it interesting. I would like to know the other side of the story to help me form a more informed opinion.

HASH(0x8d2f0fd8) out of 5 stars A difficult read 30 Jan. 2013
By Bette Bensch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There is a lot of good information here, but it's very difficult to read. If it offered solutions for our problems, they were hard to find and not something an individual can implement. I understand we need to influence our government to make better decisions, but I was hoping for more personal solutions for my own food-growing efforts rather than a complete review of what's happening in Ethiopia. Too many statistics, too few solutions.
HASH(0x8c40acb4) out of 5 stars Excellent, startling information 7 Sept. 2012
By Liss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Growing a Better Future does a good job of presenting the results of many different studies in a coherent and concise manner. It could be used as a jumping-off point for further research. I appreciated the many web links included to delve deeper into topics of interest. Some of the charts could have included more explanation of the impacts of the data, but overall, an excellent introduction to the looming food crisis and some practical solutions to avoid and/or alleviate its devastating effects.
HASH(0x8c40af18) out of 5 stars Climate Change is the nearest danger. 12 May 2013

If you interested with climate change you should read this book too. It contains too many valuable informations for establishing a better future
