KIRKUS REVIEW

The introduction led me to expect some revolutionary findings and a good deal of debunking. And from that angle, the book is disappointing, for it is straight-forward factual evidence of the distribution of costs and profits in the food industry, made intelligible to the housewife through charts and graphs. He takes the average weekly food budget and purchases, and then traces the dairy products dollar, the meat dollar, the fresh fruit and vegetable dollar, the canned goods dollar, etc., back to the farmer, with all the connecting steps. At the close, my chief reaction was relief that I was not in the food business, where the chances for profit are small and the distribution wide. A book which should interest intelligent women as a matter of information and which should prove suggestive as to small ways of saving.
