If any Ecologist doubts whether they should read this book or just feel plainly knowledgeable/self-righteous, I recommend they go look up Peters' book first (this goes for anyone with the time to do it as well), A Critique for Ecology. After said ecologist feels like hanging him/her-self, take notice in that Chapter 15/16 in Ford's book is - briefly said - Peters' Critiques vs. Ford's Solutions. In of itself, the book is worth buying just because of this last chapter - if you don't believe me, read Peters. ENJOY!
