Campbell's follow-up to his best-selling The China Study is more of the same, in the best way. He continues his quest to convince people that "the ideal human diet looks like this: Consumer plant-based foods in forms as close to their natural state as possible...eat a variety of vegetables, fruits, raw nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, and whole grains." The entirety of the book is a passionate and convincing case for that ideal diet. Campbell has not written a book of diet tips, or even provided recipes. In fact, at times the book delves so deeply into scientific process— for example, explaining how cancer develops or how metabolism works—that many may find themselves having to read slowly to understand his point. Yet he makes the case that Americans are too prone to take pills to solve health issues (and doctors too prone to prescribe them) as a result of "reductionist thinking". His years of scientific study and calm, measured tone are highly convincing, making a firm case that changing one's diet is the best way to assure good health. Readers will be inclined to put down their processed food snacks once they read what could be a life-changer of a book. (May)
I'm still reading this. Carefully and slowly. From The China Study he delves more deeply into how research works, breaks it down for non-scientists and gives a lot to think about. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Linda Caswell

I couldn't finish the book. I agree with the premise but didn't like the arguments or style. The author struck me as ornery.Published 12 days ago by valerie litznerski

Really enjoyed this. I just wish it would be required reading in college. I am fairly new at the WFPB diet and this book just makes me want to try harder to eat healthy. Read morePublished 1 month ago by gardenchick
