Review: Library Journal starred review - December 15, 2007
“Her persuasive book reminds us all that we can no longer be passive observers to the world around us—our future depends on it. Highly recommended for all academic and public libraries.”
Review: Kirkus Reviews - December 1, 2007
"…her description of the hit-or-miss nature of the genetic-engineering process—which studies suggest may be at the root of alleged health impacts associated with GMOs—will unnerve many. A firm but not strident attack on 'techno-elites' that raises serious questions about the way we farm."

"...a persuasive account of a lesser-known but potentially apocalyptic threat to the world’s ecology and food supply—the privatization of the Earth’s seed stock… [Cummings'] authoritative portrait of another way in which our planet is at peril provides stark food for thought."
