Review quote

-Patton (emer., Penn State) draws on his more than 50 years of work on milk-flavor synthesis to present a readable history of milk production and consumption... This authoritative and engaging work includes photographs that appear dated but add to the historical and personal nature of the text. Milk will be valuable for any academic library that supports the study of food science, animal science, or human nutrition. Libraries with health and wellness collections will find it useful. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels.-

--C. Brown, Choice

-... knowledge, broad background, and thoughtful scientific matter allow him to become the ultimate science based apologist for milk.-

Journal of Dairy Science

-Knowledgeably written, Milk is a scientifically researched and presented response to modern-day claims downplaying or even attacking the health of milk as a food. Unashamedly pro-dairy consumption, Milk backs its fervent emphasis upon the importance of regularly consuming dairy products as a part of a balanced diet with research, statistics, and modern scientific wisdom.-

Bookwatch

-Patton is one of the few scientists who has the understanding of all aspects of the dairy industry to write such a far-ranging book and he has done so marvelously. This book presents clear and documented facts that will allow the reader to evaluate the radical claims made against the dairy industry by the animal rights activist movement. I would recommend this book as an enjoyable and informative read for anyone interested in nutrition, particularly their own.-
