A brave examination of the calamities caused by a policy laughingly called one of 'cheap food' -- Jeremy Paxman * Observer, Book of the Year *
Challenges each and every one of us to think again about what we buy and eat. It's almost like uncovering a secret state within the state -- Andrew Marr * BBC Radio 4's Start the Week *
A thorough, complex and shocking insight into the food we eat in the twenty-first century . . . Perhaps this should be sold as the most effective diet book ever written * Daily Mail *
I can't remember when a book made me more angry. Lawrence's book should be compulsory reading . . . Nothing is what it says on the packet -- Allison Pearson * Evening Standard *
Her expose of the costs of our year-round food cornucopia leaves no packet unscanned, and very few undamned * Independent *
A stark, challenging and compelling book * Sunday Times *
A devastating analysis of the food business * Sunday Telegraph *
Felicity Lawrence's horrifying account of how the food we eat is produced doesn't make for a good night's sleep but is compulsively readable. It is the sort of book that changes attitudes -- Peter Parker * Evening Standard *
A blistering expose of the global food industry, focusing on the role supermarkets play in deciding what we eat and how it gets to us. This is a great book that anyone who eats should read. It is also a fantastic diet aid - you may never eat again! * Bookmunch *
Superb, chilling, excellent. There are not many books that make you radically reconsider everyday choices. The facts simply stagger * Scotland on Sunday *
Superb. In this re-issued book she has added a brilliant section on the horsemeat scandal * Evening Standard *
