Whatever you believe there's no denying that man's hunger and thirst is having a catastrophic effect on many ecosystems and natural balances. And that's what Jason Drew and David Lorimer's new book aims to set out in fascinating and enlightening detail. The environmental experts claim the global recession is a mere drop in the ocean compared to another storm that's brewing - a problem they call the 'protein crunch'. The Protein Crunch is a term they've given to the effect they say mankind has had on the supplies that we rely on above all others - food and water. Refreshingly their new book isn't the prophecy of doom I expected. Nor is it another lengthy moan about how little we recycle and how much fossil fuel we get through. It simply lays out the facts in a simple and interesting way. It's a book that makes you feel very small. Despite the huge amounts of evidence it puts forward to explain mankind's effect on our planet, it still leaves you feeling insignificant. Like we're all playing a tiny part in what could become a massive issue. But at the same time it offers a brutal reminder of just what is happening around us. It's a while since I've read a factual book that's made me think so much. --Burton Mail
