    Review quote
    "We all want to end hunger. Conway's book provides the roadmap for how to do it.... Conway provides clear (if lengthy) guidelines for what to do and how to do it. His is a voice of optimism, and he speaks convincinglty and authoritatively when addressing the promise of agricultural science in this endeavor." C. Peter Timmer, Journal of Economic Literature(March 2014)"
