Yes, In fact I did.
Great information that everyone should have access to.
I changed my eating habits based on the information in this book and have never felt better. Also, those last 10 pounds are finally coming off. Positive choices are easier when you understand what is at stake.

Credible evidence about an undisputed national health crisis and the simple solutions and plain truth each of us should know about how to counter this crisis
The discussions regarding western medicine's opinions about diet being the simple answer to complex healthcare problems
The discussions about patient's coronary blood flow improvments when diet was altered - this was fascinating information and counter to common belief
Just what the doctor (should have) ordered - for dinner
A great read - a must read for anyone in healthcare prevention !! We should ALL be in healthcare prevention..
Haven't read the print version
The narrator's voice is excellent
The stats on vegan vs. non-vegan
Rarely do I stumble upon a book that change my life. This audiobook is one of it. The audiobook's content is highly organized and is superbly deliver by the narrator. The author's argument is backed up by convincing statistics, evidence and logic. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is concerned about his/her health.
Very compelling data and numerous studys that make the case for a diet of plant based foods.
It easy to understand yet is not superficial. I found the audio book moving and funny while being highly enlightening.
As someone who is being to suffer from niggling health problems this book has come along at exactly the right time.
Dr Campbell lays it out in a clear and understandable format that proves - yes PROVES - that animal protein is causing most if not all of our cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other terminal diseases. This book is changing my life. I am now on a plant based diet and plan to continue for the rest of my (hopefully healthy) life.
Another book to companion with this one is Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell B Esselstyn, Jr., M.D. Dr. Esselstyn proves it in a different way but once again - PROVES it.
Both these men and their families practice what they preach and practice a plant based diet. It's a matter of life or death - a really awful death or a wonderful healthy life. You get to decide.
I thought the book was very informative, but everyone will take something different away. I personally thought it was a bit extreme at points, but still found the content and the facts very helpful in making educated decision on how I eat and feed my family
Books on diets are at best risky, too many hugely opposing views seems to surface from time to time. The China study and it???s author promised a real scientific approach to the problem. As it turns out, it all seems to be an attempt at pushing some agenda. Make-up your own mind.
I started of sceptical and will remain so. I will in future Google more before I buy.
It was average
I???m annoyed that authors with strong credentials are not beyond bending a few facts to feather their beds for retirement.
The presentation of facts, points of view and observations by T. Colin Campbell were in line with the recommendations by my own doctors, which made sense of the whole eating process. A valuable "second opinion" for all those who want to change "eating" for the rest of your life. The author's solutions to obesity are obvious, easy to understand, and actually worked for me. I thoroughly recommend this to any person above their ideal weight.
The China Study is a provacative read providing compelling scientific evidence that we've gotten the Western diet all wrong. The story is well written and enjoyable to listen to, while telling us that we've been duped by the government into thinking that meat protein (meat, eggs, milk) are good for us, then once sick, we can turn to medical doctors untrained in nutrition and insented toward high cost ineffective procedures and pharmaceuticals. By living on plants alone we can avoid or even reverse cancer and heart disease. I must say that I am currently a near Atkins like protein eater with an aversion to carbohydrates. This new information flies in the face of what I thought to be true. As a trim 40-something, weight management has been my primary concern, thinking cancer is predestined based on family history and bad luck and being too young / healthy to be concerned for my heart health. Where the book falls short is in identifying a reasonable and tasty transition plan on how to adopt a plant based diet. As he also is against all oils, I'm at a loss as to how to prepare a full menu plentiful on a variety of foods, seasonings, and textures. It needs a follow on diet book or at least recommended reads as to who has it right.
