Written in 1962, this book gives an overview of the challenges raised by the way man interacts with his environment. This covers such diverse topics as chemicals introduced into foods, industrialized agriculture, the stress induced by living in our congested cities, radiation, medical progress, what defines health. This is not a rant, but rather a thoughtful review of the various aspects of how man has changed his environment and what consequences arise from there and how to mitigate the negative impacts while not losing the advantages. Though some aspects are dated, most of the book is still very valid in the points it raises and very readable. ( )
