5.0 out of 5 stars Objective, pro-technology view of food's future, March 13, 2012
This review is from: The Taste of Tomorrow: Dispatches from the Future of Food (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For those hoping that this book will tell them that the future of food is an organic Eden, don't buy this book. Keep dreaming. For those who prefer a dose of reality, read this book

The author came into the project with a balanced view, almost anti-GMO, but after years of researched he warmed up to the idea. This is sensible once you consider the facts. Those who haven't considered all the facts, ought to read this book.

The last paragraph of the book give you a preview of the tone of the book:

"I raise this concern because of the rising tide of food-specific neo-Luddism in America. While entirely well intentioned and often beneficial in its impact, this foodie fundamentalism is unfortunately often associated with a dangerous antiscientism. If we are going to meet the enormous challenges of feeding the world's still growing population, we are going to need all the ingenuity we can bring to bear. My modest hope: Let's keep an open mind. Let's consider even the fringy, sometimes yucky, maybe kooky idea. Let's not miss opportunities to build a long-term sustainable future for our planet."
