The Man Who Fed the World is an insightful book about an extraordinary man, but also illustrates the on-going challenges to feed the world
Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice
Supreme Court of the United States (ret.)
Your biography of Dr. Borlaug is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. … Dr. Borlaug's foresights, dogged commitment, practical and passionate approach to solving the world's food problem have left an indelible mark in the history of the world.

It's a trifecta much bigger and rarer than an Oscar, an Emmy and a Tony. Only five people in history have ever won the Nobel Peace Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal: Martin Luther King, Jr.; Mother Teresa; Nelson Mandela; Elie Wiesel; … and Norman Borlaug.

Dr. Borlaug’s scientific achievements prevented mass starvation
and death in South Asia and the Middle East. I have been particularly
impressed by his work in Africa, …Dr. Borlaug is an American hero
and a world icon.
