    1. July 2017 My Book Box Non-fiction selectionI am at once very conflicted and very disappointed in this book. It is not a bad book. In fact, Lymbery's view on farming are ones that I agree with and of those farms I try to support. In fact, I stopped buy Purdue chicken several years ago after watching a Fronline program about chicken farms and pollution.So I agree with his thesis.At times, I found this book interesting. The chapters on palm oil and corn in particular stood out. It's just that somet [...]

    2. Dead Zone is an astonishing feat. To describe it as well-written and well-researched is an understatement. The author has traveled around the world to document the (often unexpected) effects of human eating habits on wildlife. Each chapter focuses on a specific wild animal and how its fate has become unfortunately interlinked with human eating habits. They include the elephant, bison, shrimp, water vole, jaguar, penguin, and bumblebee. Lymbery’s style is compelling and his prose descriptive. M [...]

    3. A freaky, frightening and highly disturbing report by Philip Lymbery, 'Dead Zone' spells out a 21st century warning in a very similar way to Rachel Carson's 'Silent Spring' way back in 1962. These publications are separated by fifty five years, but Lymbery's 'point of no return' earth predictions happen in 2050, in thirty three years time, if global agri business continues on it's present road.The author's previous book was 'Farmageddon' and here again his beef is meat! Industrial factory farms [...]

    4. This is an extremely readable and important book that talks about an issue few even think about at all, that being the true cost of cheap meat that so many millions and millions take for granted, and the environmental catastrophe it is causing. The author travels to a wide variety of locales around the globe, showing examples of how the widespread factory farming of animals is causing wildlife to disappear, is bad for soil, water, air and many other aspects of the environment we all depend on fo [...]
