Publisher Comments:

Fears of Frankenfood, e coli, and "mad cow" meat abound. If, indeed, we are what we eat, what in the world are we becoming? Now, John Robbins, who revolutionized how we think about food, reveals the truth about our already deadly diet. Fifteen years after the publication of Diet for a New America, and 10 years after the popular PBS special about the book (September 1991), general readers are informed, curious, and articulate about diet and nutrition, and that phenomenally successful book was one of the vehicles for awakening people?s interest in the direct connection between what they eat and their health.

Now, at this time in our culture?s history, people in the general population are fairly sophisticated in their knowledge of quite a wide range of issues related to diet: the importance of a low-fat diet; the relative importance of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables in daily eating; the connections between certain foods and certain health issues, particularly heart disease and cancer; the dark side of the agricultural business, particularly the beef and chicken industries; and the questions raised by scientific breakthroughs in genetically engineered foods.

This sequel to Diet for a New America speaks to a nation that is much more savvy about food and health issues than it was in the 1980?s and presents the tremendously compelling new information that has come out of research in the fields of nutrition, medicine, and agriculture, bringing the reader in on what we now know about relationships between diet and longevity, aging, and robust health. Armed with powerful statistics, fascinating discussions, and exposes of false information and its proponents, the author argues for people adopting a vegetarian diet for their own well-being as well as that of the planet. Politically charged, the book is unquestionably convincing in its advocacy of a lifestyle that is not only personally beneficial but of critical importance to the world at large. This is a book of health and hope, and it unabashedly makes a pitch for a better world through better eating.

Review:

"Well researched and lucidly written, if sometimes overly sentimental and burdened by cliched rhetoric, this book is sure to spark discussion and incite readers to examine their food choices." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Robbins's zealous advocacy of plant-based nutrition and his refusal to consider the need for animal products in human nutrition throws his book off balance. Nevertheless, those who want to know more about vegan diets will gain many insights from his provocative book." Library Journal

Review:

"John Robbins has done it again! Another brilliant, mind-altering, paradigm-shifting, lifestyle-changing, heart-expanding book from the most powerfully sane man I know. The Food Revolution will change your life and the lives of those you love. Thoughtful, penetrating, impeccably researched, it will make you laugh, then cry, then pass it on to your loved ones." Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

Review:

"With regard to our health and the health of our planet, The Food Revolution could be the most important book ever written." Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God

Review:

"A vital and wonderful book, and easy to digest, this is a perfect read for anyone with a body, a mind, and a heart. The Food Revolution is the most positive book of the decade." Ingrid Newkirk, President, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

Synopsis:

The man who started the "food revolution" with the groundbreaking "Diet for a New America" now boldly posits that, collectively, our personal diet can save ourselves and the world. Robbins argues for adopting a vegetarian diet for personal wellbeing as well as for the wellbeing of the planet. Photos, charts & tables.

Synopsis:

How your diet can help save your life and our world. A topical manifesto for the post foot-and-mouth era - devastating in its accuracy. The sequel to the groundbreaking, 'Diet For a New America'.

Rene Friberg, August 30, 2007 (view all comments by Rene Friberg)
This is the first book by John Robbins that I've ever read, and he has me hooked.
I appreciate his honesty, his research, and his willingness to share his journey.
It's a great book, and it is told well.
