He continues to work tirelessly to promote conscious food choices more than 20 years later. First published in 2001, The Food Revolution is still one of the most frequently cited and talked about books of the food-politics revolution. It was one of the very first books to discuss the negative health effects of eating genetically modified foods and animal products of all kinds, to expose the dangers inherent in our factory farming system, and to advocate a complete plant-based diet. The bok garnered endorsements by everyone from Paul Hawken to Neal Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson to Julia Butterfly Hill. After ten years in print, The Food Revolution is timelier than everand a very compelling read. The 10th anniversary edition has an updated, new contemporary look and a new introduction by the author.Read Less

This is an important book; much like ?Fast Food Nation? it is a wake-up call for all consumers to pay attention to the impact of our collective diet on the planet.
This comes from a fascinating and dedicated man, heir to the Baskin-Robbins fortune, who turned his back on his family empire on principal.
This book is very detailed, tackling many global issues - famine, poverty, animal cruelty, genetic modification of foodstuffs, water shortages - with the very clear conclusion - we must change our eating habits, to save the world and our own lives.
It isn?t a vague book, but deals in specifics - for example, how many gallons of water a cow needs to produce a steak, and the local and broader impact of that consumption.
You should read this book. Especially if you don?t want to.
