Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!! Way way too much information here for a "Field Guide". If you want a quick reference guide to telling you about buying organic--this isn't it!! Three times now I've picked it up to read it and find myself going...ugh!!! As a mother of 3, no way do I have time for this.
