Very interesting book. Unlike most in the same genre, Jay touches on many subjects, but also gives you a very in-depth look at each one (as in depth as one can get on 3-4 pages).

The book did lack the "oommph" that makes someone want to get up and wash their clothes with tea oils, however it did gives us a practical look at some problems, and how people are approaching them.

The chapters are easily discernible and all the issues have nice colour photos.

Not the quick, kick in the pants type of book, but a good read for anyone doing research or looking for a good casual read.
