Review:

"I recommend this book highly to the academic community as we try collectively to understand the next 50 years in regard to food security and environmental sustainability...It is well referenced. Feeding the Ten Billion is a good reference for upper level courses on sustainability and should be on the shelf of those working and writing in agricultural sustainability." Soil Science

"Excellent...a very readable book which should be of interest to a wide audience, including teachers, students, policy-makers, advisers and the general public." Plant Growth Regulation
