From Publishers' Weekly:

Cookbook author Bittman (How to Cook Everything) offers this no-nonsense volume loaded with compelling information about how the food we eat is doing damage to the environment, what changes to make and why. Authors have covered this topic before (Michael Pollan, for example, in The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food), but Bittman takes a practical turn by concluding with 77 recipes that make earth-friendly eating doable and appealing. His collection of reliable recipes even includes such meat dishes as Thai beef salad, which isn't meat-heavy, but rather has "just the right balance of meat to greens." There are also such staples as super-simple mixed rice; "chicken not pie"; and modern bouillabaisse. Bittman decries consumption of "over-refined carbohydrates," but doesn't leave off without some sweets, including chocolate semolina pudding and nutty oatmeal cookies-suggesting, as the whole book does, that a diet in synch with the needs of the earth doesn't result in a sense of utter deprivation.

From Library Journal:

Author of the "Minimalist" column for the New York Times, Bittman picks up the torch for eating responsibly at a time when, e.g., livestock production is doing more to boost global warming than transportation. With a six-city tour. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
