This book had plenty of beautiful photographs, and a lot of interesting information about sweatshop labor and sustainable fashion... but I came away feeling like I'd just read one LONG ad for the People Tree company. I think every interview was with a People Tree collaborator, model, makeup artist, etc.. The book did reference some other sustainable companies and tried to deliver an important message, but I still felt a bit tricked.

Safia Minney and the people she highlights are doing wonderful work and more should be done. The book is written as short anecdotal snippets and is a quick read. It is a good intro into this field. I would have liked more detail.
