Join the Bill Gates Book Club and Read Tomorrow's Table

Thank you Bill Gates for your work on behalf of farmers and.... for blogging on our book, Tomorrow's Table!
If you don't have time to read the full reviews, here are a few excerpts:

"This is an important book for anyone who wants to learn about the science of seeds and the challenges faced by farmers... I think anyone who reads this book will be convinced of the authors' sincerity and intelligence - even if, like me, you never try any of the cool-sounding recipes...

I gained an understanding of the history of organic farming and learned about some of the very clever ways organic farmers control pests. I agree with the authors that we will need the best ideas from "organic" thinkers and from scientists - including genetic engineers - to feed the world and help the poorest...

I certainly recommend this book "

Arg! I've come to completely ignore book recommendations on scienceblogs, unless it's really old.

They're never available anywhere! Google, ixquick, the piratebay, booktorrentz, Emule, limewire, I've tried EVERYTHING.

I've tried all the different permutations I can think of "tomorrow's table" "tomorrows table" + authors +torrent, misspelling, it's ain't out there. It's a myth.

hello Heelok
The Tomorrows' table link has now been added.

Cool. Bill G. has good taste in non-fiction literature.

I'm a great fan of Tomorrow's Tablle book.
We are now translating it into Japanese and the japanese book will be published next year.
Actually, I feel a little bit scared because most Japanese people have negative opinion to GE.
I could ask Bill g. to write to Japanese people and to recommend for reading our books.

Dear Yoko,

I am delighted to hear that you are translating Tomorrow's Table into Japanese. I realize it is quite a bit of work. Would you please let me know the name of the Japanese publisher and the date that you expect it will be available?

Apparently there are also Korean and Turkish translations underway as well.

Thank you for taking time to write and good luck with your project.
All the best,
