Good Storytelling kept my interest

I like this book. It has a story-telling style to it, which kept me interested. It focuses on the people in the organic movement. I grew up on an organic farm, and even still, this book taught me a lot about how the idea of "organic" got started, and gave me a much broader perspective about the industry and the many different types of organic farms out there. Also, I really liked hearing about the many different reasons that consumers buy organic. Organic foods are beneficial for so many reasons, so it makes sense that consumers would be pulled in for their own personal reasons, ranging from health, to more sustainable living, to the environment.

Note: after finishing the book (I cheated and reviewed before I was even done reading.) I think the book deserves a +5. It was an excellent and eye-opening view of an industry that I thought I already knew everything about. Awesome.
