I would change a lot of this book. While I agree with much of what is in this book I dislike all the kid like ranting and raving. It's no wonder the people that oppose his views treat him like a kid. I think reception of the ideas presented would be better received if delivered in a more professional manner with more facts and not blanket statements with half truths such as what he accuses others of doing.Overall I feel like it was a waste of my time.
No but I'll probably research the author better.
Not one that I would watch.
I thought the reader of the book did a great job. I'll certainly watch for other books with the same reader.
Based on the title, I thought this book would be about eating whole food. Instead, it's about evidence supporting a plant-based diet. Although at times it seems like a research paper, I found the information fascinating and valuable. The author talks about fallacy of reductionism - focus on a single specialty of practice, single drug, or single nutrient to treat diseases. Our culture is accustomed to doctors prescribing medication, rather than discussing diet. It's easy - pop some pills and your problem goes away. Except your problem doesn't go away. There are many side effects to medication. And why are they called "side" effects? They are effects on your body. You're trying to ingest something that your body doesn't process well. If you think you should eat more fruits and vegetables but wonder how much benefit you would get from it, this book would convince you.
I turned the speed up 1.5-2x to get through this book. The reader was well-spoken, and well modulated, but it seemed like nearly every chapter repeated something from a previous chapter.
Fewer repetitions of phrases and stories, as well as fewer references to being considered a heretic. Once of anything was enough. The book sounded like it was made up of a combination of speeches Dr. Campbell might have given over time, because there were so many repetitions of phrases and examples. I think the same points could have been made in fewer words.
I have practiced eating foods as close to their natural state as possible for a number of years and am quite healthy at almost 60. I will be considering what the authors said about animal protein, but I am not completely sure I will be able to eliminate it completely...we'll see.
I would have liked the book better if it had been about 1/3 as long as it was.
I just had a hard time really enjoying the content because the narrator didn't pull me in
For anyone who wants to understand why the hell everybody is not eating s whole plant based diet and what is causing them to not do so.
Just listening to the thoughts of this great man (and his fellow WFPBD revolutionaries) has changed my life forever and no doubt will have saved me from an early death and a lot of pain and suffering from eating the typical Australian diet.
Thank-you, Mr T. Campbell.
The author has a long career in research and academia. He points out that the nutrition guidelines we receive are all inluenced by industries that benefit or might be damaged by the actions we take based on those guidelines. Very informative and an alternative to the normal corporate inluenced information we receive. I enjoyed it.
common sense easy to follow vital information about health and the medical industry . if you want to live a longer healther life read this book.
Never in my life I thought that so many organizations can be so corrupt to create a system around money to keep public from finding out the truth about their own power and destiny. Dr Campbell is a true hero who has shown so much courage in this book to expose the real offenders in the American health system. Anyone who reads this book would be encouraged to fight against the system to make a change and will feel very empowered to own and control their own health. I wish everyone in the USA and whole world read this book to know how our wrong trajectory on scientific research has taken us to a point where we are about to break down the very habitat we live in through our own arrogant actions. I liked the way Dr Campbell explained how Renaissance made a positive change in the olden times and why we need another such revolution at a large scale to survive beyond the year 2050 as a successful species.
