“There is no obvious competing or comparable book. . . . Green Illusions has the same potential to sound a wake-up call in the energy arena as was observed with Silent Spring in the environment, and Fast Food Nation in the food system.” - Charles Francis, former director of the Center for Sustainable Agriculture Systems
