|In "stuffed and Starved" by Raj Patel, I learned about the World food System. This book introduced a lot of new material to my eyes, while still covering a lot of materials we had already covered during the year in AP Human Geography. |
Although, Raj Patel's writing style is quite dry and to be frank, boring, he still covers a lot of valuable information in this book.
As this book is a non-fiction book, it reads much like a documentary... a very long documentary.
The book is missing specific examples, stories of people's lives, that connect to the book.
Overall, however, the book still provides tons of information and statistics regarding the world food system.
That being said, I'd rate this book a 2.5 out of 5!
