Download Our Daily Bread: the Essential Norman Borlaug
Until midnight Pacific on Friday, anyone can download the book “Our Daily Bread: the Essential Norman Borlaug” by Noel Vietmeyer in digital form for free at www.amazon.com/Daily-Essential-Norman-Borlaug-ebook. The prologue of the book reads: “Norman Borlaug grew up hungry; he grew up poor; he only wanted to be a forester. After creating super-productive food crop varieties he donated their seeds to the world and saved hundreds of millions from starvation. He is our age’s humanitarian hero.”
As a professional at the National Academy of Sciences, Vietmeyer often worked with Borlaug. Borlaug’s own words, which form the book’s backbone according to the author, were recorded during discussions spanning more than 20 years. The e-book can be read on computers (both PCs and Macs), Kindles, Nooks, tablets, smart phones, etc., but may require downloading an additional free Kindle Reading App.
