Sintesi dell'editore

This book is all about the single most powerful move that humans can make to promote health, reduce obesity, lower the cost of health care, nurture our fragile environment, conserve our energy resources, feed the world’s steadily growing population, and greatly reduce the suffering of animals in factory farms all over the world. As Dr. T. Colin Campbell says, “It turns out that if we eat the way that promotes the best health for ourselves, we also promote the best health for the planet.”

Like a blinding flash of the obvious, the single most viable solution to all of these issues is an aggressive move in the direction of consuming much more whole, plantbased foods—not necessarily becoming vegetarian or vegan. This book clearly explains how and why we began eating the wrong food for our species and provides helpful guidelines for getting us back on the road to vibrant health and effortless weight loss.

Fortunately, despite the incredible complexity of our current dilemma, the solution is refreshingly simple. It merely requires educating yourself, making better choices in what you eat, and then sharing all that you have learned with everyone you care about. There has never been anything more important in the history of the world.

A Very Educational Book / Audio

Where does Healthy Eating, Healthy World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best audio books I have listened to regarding health and our environment. It's material that should be taught in school but will never be allowed until the government gets out of public schools and stops controlling the curriculum.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Healthy Eating, Healthy World?

By far the most memorable moment of the book was making the distinction between our eating habits and their affect on the environment.

What does Mike Chamberlain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mike doesn't just read the story to you, he is engaged in it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think this entire book is good. A lot of the nutritional information is identical to "The China Study". That's good since I hope more people get that message and act on what they learn.

Any additional comments?

This is a very good audio and I highly recommend listening if you are ready to make changes to your health and the environment. They are more connected than I ever knew.

Meh...not a whole lot new here

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The last hour and a half or so was interesting. I enjoyed his ideas on how to begin a program of eating a WFPB diet. I think this book would have been much better if there was more emphasis on his personal experience, lessons learned, strategies, and the day-to-day life of being vegan, especially for a busy professional. He simply mentions in passing his son and other family members with demanding schedules that have made the successful transition to the WFPB diet, but then fails to discuss their experiences or strategies. How does a busy working mother and father accommodate a vegan life style with kids? He superficially touches on helpful ideas, such as eating out, planning meals, making a menu, etc. However these topics were left woefully under developed and were the biggest questions I needed to have answered. If you have an interest in nutrition and have listened/read the books already by authors such Campbell, Pollan, etc the majority of the book will be old news.

Would you recommend Healthy Eating, Healthy World to your friends? Why or why not?

Only if they were entirely new to the subject and had not already listened or read other authors on the subject.

Was Healthy Eating, Healthy World worth the listening time?

I felt like the majority of the book was simply a book report or re-reporting information of other people. As stated above, I would have really found his experiences and those of his family dealing with their transitional experiences and daily strategies more valuable.

Slightly skewed

Although most of the items in this book are accurate, several items are skewed to make it sound much more dramatic than what it really is. The author says several times that you don't have to have a vegetarian lifestyle but you just need to remove all meats and by products ... which is the definition of a vegetarian diet.

Loaded with Information

This book is loaded with information and research findings--it is not a light and entertaining listen. I listen to this title when driving or walking to help reinforce lifestyle changes I am trying to make. The narrator's performance is rather pedantic and becomes a "forceful" monotone after awhile.

Eye Opener!

This book was an inspiration and insight to help me transition into a new phase in my life. I want to implement a plant based diet in my daily lifestyle and with the knowledge I received from this book, I am looking forward to begin this journey. The way I view foods now, especially meat is such an eye opener. Thanks for sharing!

Preachy and dogmatic about avoiding meat based food

The author employs plenty of anecdotal evidence and news headlines to support the argument for a plant based diet. There is plenty of encouragement to eat a healthy balanced diet, but the author goes overboard to argue that every disease, every social ill, and every economic challenge can be overcome by not eating meat and dairy.

Excellent information that the world needs to hear

I have been on a mostly plant-based diet for about 8 months now and was starting to forget everything I had read and become lax on what I ate. This book reminded me of all the reasons I started this diet and even more. I think the whole world needs to hear this information. We really do need to change and it starts with one person at a time!

Alarmist Predictions

Alarmist predictions, especially about the economy and human population, undercut what is potentially good about this book. If an author is willing to cave to alarmist predictions such as overpopulation which has been raised, and proved wrong, several times since Thomas Malthus' prediction of overpopulation in the 1800s, it makes me question the factual underpinnings of the rest of his claims. I'd say skip and read a different book encouraging a plant based diet.

Very educational & thought provoking

This book strengthened my resolve to move to a whole foods plant based diet. There are many different reasons from my personal health, from helping ease the suffering of animals and beginning the reversal of trends that can ultimately destroy our planet.

Not really what I expected

What disappointed you about Healthy Eating, Healthy World?

I wasn't looking to become a vegan, only wanted to understand more about plant based food. I felt this book told me to not eat any animal products.

Would you ever listen to anything by J. Morris Hicks and J Stanfield Hicks again?

No
