    Cannot be 100% accurate

    This book is not 100% accurate on how the average American would live on a dollar a day. It was over a year ago that I read this book, but from what I remember is the couple were vegan. With that being a small portion of the population, you cannot take into consideration how somone who is a meat eater would do in this situation. It's still really well written and goes in-depth, but for those of us who make up the majority of the population, it doesn't cover how we would do in this situation. I do however recommend the book for others as a learning guide into the worlds hunger problem.

    I almost felt their hunger.

    Christopher and Kerri gave such detailed descriptions about their experiences that I almost felt as if I were there. I can't imagine watching what I spend on food as closely as they did. In one instance Kerri is at a school function where there are cookies; she calls Christopher and asks if she can eat one, but it is decided that she shouldn't. He then bakes cookies that will fit into their budget and brings her one. I found that very moving, but I also was aware of the fact that this was an experiment for them that they could have discontinued at any time. It was a very well written book.
