Unfortunately, the evidence, the whole structure to sustain the argument, is not strong enough nor well-researched. This is more an ideological tract than an objective essay. Don't misunderstand me: the ideology promoted is one with which I happen to have much sympathy: I'm all for investing in local food systems and going local.
It's a pity the book doesn't work better because it is largely a missed opportunity to make a strong statement in favour of all the values Mr. Tasch supports and win over new adherents.
