Important Topic Well Covered,
This review is from: Healthy Eating, Healthy World: Unleashing the Power of Plant-Based Nutrition (Paperback)
Over the last twenty thirty years I have read a number of books dealing with diet and the impact it has on our bodies and our planet. One of the first was John Robbins, Diet for a New America. Healthy Eating Health World picks up where books like Robbins' left off and offers a current, fact based perspective on this critically important topic. It clearly explains how the answer to so many of our own individual health problems and those of the earth on which we reside, can be solved simply by what we choose to eat.
Hicks raises all the right issues but does so in a way that is readily approachable and nonthreatening, even to members of the mainstream medical community, many of whom are not yet enlightened about the subject.
The book is exceptionally well written. I finished it in a few hours not because I am a speed reader but because it is a "great read." Although the topics covered address life and death decisions we make every day, the clever wording and subtle humor make reading it a pleasure.
I am buying copies to give as gifts to family, friends and business associates. I can't think of anything more valuable I could give people I care about.
