Each post is set out as comprehensively as possible with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from Odd Ball

Everything I want to do is Illegal

By Joel Salatin

Odd Ball said: “This book is easy to read and takes a light-hearted look at the bureaucratic red tape that a semi self-sufficient farmer has to deal with in order to do, make or sell anything. It even covers the problems he had in trying to make & sell bacon..”

Amazon said: “Drawing upon 40 years’ experience as an ecological farmer and marketer, Joel Salatin explains with humor and passion why Americans do not have the freedom to choose the food they purchase and eat. From child labor regulations to food inspection, bureaucrats provide themselves sole discretion over what food is available in the local marketplace. Their system favors industrial, global corporate food systems and discourages community-based food commerce, resulting in homogenized selection, mediocre quality, and exposure to non-organic farming practices. Salatin’s expert insight explains why local food is expensive and difficult to find and will illuminate for the reader a deeper understanding of the industrial food complex.”
