University of Chicago Press monthly free book

The Univesity of Chicago offers one book each month for free. IMO, they’ve ranged from awesome to kind of odd, but always have provoked a bit of thought. This month’s book (Nov 2021) is Consumed: Food for a Finite Planet by Sarah Elton, which appears to be pretty much what you might guess from the title:

“By 2050, the world population is expected to reach nine billion. And the challenge of feeding this rapidly growing population is being made greater by climate change, which will increasingly wreak havoc on the way we produce our food. In┬áConsumed, Sarah Elton walks fields and farms on three continents, not only investigating the very real threats to our food, but also telling the little-known stories of the people who are working against time to create a new and hopeful future.”

You do have to give UChi your email address, but they are pretty respectful of it, and only send the very occasional email – not nearly enough to be offensive.

I’ll come back and add next month’s free book in the comments to this post, so keep an eye out here!
