    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."

    What did you like best about Healthy Eating, Healthy World? What did you like least?

    The author brings to discussion a very important subject and offers the reader a new kind of diet, which should be followed by everyone. His arguments favoring this "new diet" are quite strong and have almost completely convinced me if it weren't for the author's radicalism at some points.

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know who would enjoy this book, because I could not read it to the end. Maybe there is a point in which it becomes more exciting, but I did not reach this part...


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I have to say I am a bit disappointed, since it was a highly recommended book. The cover also attracted me, but in the end, it was just boring and not the kind of story dynamics I was expecting.
