review 1: I got this book at BEA and boy am I glad I did! First of all, the author's writing style had me glued the entire time! As far as content goes, this was super informative and raises many questions that Americans don't usually think twice about; what makes something organic? Personally, I don't buy organic (unless I'm at a farmer's market, local farm, etc.) because I already had my doubts before reading this book. Great read for those that are on the fence about organic products or non-fiction in general!
review 2: All homemakers should read this book, especially if they are trying to buy healthful food for the sake of their husband and children as well as themselves. Although it is a nonfiction account of the author's investigation into the credibility of organ
... moreic food labeling, Peter Laufer's quest often seems like the story line of a mystery novel. I found this book to be well researched, interesting, informative, and often quite exciting!A special thank you to the author's wife, Sheila, who did a stellar editing job:) Disclosure: This review is of an Advance Reading Copy provided by goodreads. less

Trader Joe's is the villain in this one. I'm stunned, and glad I learned more about my food choices.
too much room for uncertainty regarding whether products are genuinely organic or not.
Interesting introduction and first chapter about Trader Joe's.
So much great info.
