Paul Roberts critiques the current system of food production, both domestic and international, and it is a scary world. Roberts shows how seemingly disparate problems--first-world obesity, third-world hunger, food-borne pathogens, rising fuel costs, pollution, and climate change--are connected and are logical responses to an unsustainable large-scale, hyperefficient food system. William Dufris employs an energetic and lively manner to hold the listener's interest while maintaining a note of matter-of-factness that adds to the grimness and peril. He is adept at delivering the mix of seriousness and astonishment clearly intended by Roberts. Dufris's pacing is also entirely appropriate for material that is often complex. A faster pace could leave the listener behind; a slower one could dull the impact of the material. A.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
