Publisher's Summary

Here, the man who started the "food revolution" with the million-plus-selling Diet for a New America, boldly posits that, collectively, our personal diet can save ourselves and the world. If, according to chaos theory, the beating of a butterfly's wing can cause a hurricane in another part of the world, try this out for chaotic cause and effect: monarch butterflies are dying in droves due to genetically-engineered corn growing in the Midwest. There is also a direct correlation between the Big Mac in your hand and the mile-wide river now running across the North Pole. Learn the truth about foods we are eating that are, in Robbins' words, "unsafe on any plate."

Any additional comments?

This book can and has changed lives for the better. There is so much going on in the food industry that the average person is not aware of. Robbins doesn't throw out glittering generalites. In the printed book, he presents his information and backs it with scientific findings from an exhaustive number of footnotes. This is important to note since you don't realize this just from the audio book alone. The information is solid and thankfully he is helping to heal the planet, one reader at a time.

Another great book on the myriad benefits of a whole foods plant based diet. I really wish this message would get out there more. The world would be a far better place. People would be dramatically healthier. The environment would substantially improve. And many millions of sentient intelligent animals would not spend their entire short lives in tortured misery.

Outstanding book. Highly recommended.
