"This compilation of previously published essays, along with some new material, by best-selling author Robbins (The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World) examines the physical, social, economical, and environmental effects of industrialized food production. While a longtime promoter of a varied, plant-based diet, Robbins acknowledges that many people also want to eat animal products; for that audience, he espouses the benefits of supporting humane, natural farming practices that promote sustainability while providing nutritious, affordable food for everyone. The book's title derives from Robbins's lawsuit with PETA against the California Milk Board's "Happy Cows Come from California" advertising campaign. He discusses large-scale agribusinesses, misleading advertisements, food labeling, and government regulations of agriculture, all while providing information for his claims and deftly avoiding steamrolling readers with technical language or invective.
Verdict: Robbins sounds like a close friend who is very passionate about his cause. Like a good pal, he encourages readers to make informed choices about what they consume and how they spend their money. He believes even small steps can have big impacts if more people join his food revolution." --Meagan Storey, Virginia Beach, Library Journal, May 4, 2012
