"This book is the basis for health and happiness in any society. A must-read."
--Quentin Young, Chairman, Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, and former President, American Public Health Association "'What we need is here.' That line from a Wendell Berry poem sums up the theme that runs through this vital and timely book. This book is a treasure.
