Another must read by John Robbins. He forcefully deals with his very serious subject matter without being preachy or tiresome.

This is one of the most well written and well researched books I've ever read. In it you will learn the price we are paying for our meat habit: the destruction of our forests, the pollution and mass consumption of our water, the effects on our bodies, and the moral implications of treating animals as commodities to do with as we please. I'd been toying with the idea of vegetarianism. PETA was softening me up and Robbins gave me the final push. (Note: This is Robbins, the son of Baskin & Robbins, who gave up his inheritance to educate.) This contribution to our betterment will be far longer lasting than had he sold us ice cream. :o)

What can I say about this book...it really encouraged me to completely change my lifestyle. The animal stories were a bit sappy, but that was the point. The statistics jarred me enough to change my diet that same day. As an on and off vegetarian since high school, this book has finally made me decide to choose a side.

Old, but not really outdated, this book will make you think about what you put in your mouth.
Although it may not convince you to go vegan, it will inform you of the personal and environmental consequences of choosing to consume heedlessly. It will encourage mindful eating. It might also gross you out a bit.
I think some of the language is a bit inflammatory for my tastes, but I happen to agree with much of it, so I was almost able to overlook it. Read it for yourself and judge.

I first bought this book simply because I read an article by John Robbins and found his writing very inviting. I used to think that it would take a lot to convince me to stop eating animal products - I used to think nothing would do it. But I read this book and was presented with so many reasons for becoming vegan that I've switched to a vegan diet with relative ease. Robbins' book is wonderful in that it's really a celebration of life. He really shows you the facts about meat and dairy industries that are often kept from the consciousness of most Americans. I think this book is an extremely important read for anyone that considers themself a compassionate, accepting person. It's also crucial for those that care about their health. Because the meat industries have such clout, you need to read this book or books like it to really know the truth. My life is extremely blessed since I've read Diet for A New America and incorporated it into my Self. I recommend it to anyone that doesn't think "ignorance is bliss" and wishes to take the path of acceptance and to road to true happiness.

Format: Paperback
Eventhough I'm only half-way through the book, it has already impacted my life in so many ways. For startes, I have vowed to stop eating all red meat. The only thing I am still consuming is fish . . . not a lot. Hopefully with time, I can abstain from that too. But what really tick me is the greed in the beef/poultry industries! I can tell you more, but I think it is more effective if you read this book. The truth in this book will waken the humanity in you, at the very least.

If you want a book that will change your life and your health this is it
Mr Robbins gives you the facts and it's up to you what you do
with them. Not for the Faint of Heart. Your Dr and your Heart will thank you
You definitely won't look at food in the same light.

I had been contemplating becoming a vegetarian for a long time. This book finally made me take that leap. And it was easy. John Robbins writes with compassion and shows you his heart while backing it up with facts. And he doesn't lecture or scold you for the choices you make. He presents it as information for you to have and to make your own opinion.
Fantastic book. A must read for anyone with a soul.
Fast Food Nation on the side is a must as well.
