    The World Peace Diet has been called one of the most important books of the 21st century: the foundation of a new society based on the truth of the interconnectedness of all life. It is the first book to make explicit the invisible connections between our meals and our broad range of problems -psychological, social, and spiritual, as well as health and environmental. It offers powerful ways we can all experience healing and peace and contribute to a positive transformation of human consciousness.

    James says: "Great Book and A Wonderful Way to Live!!!"
    "Enlightening book"

    Story
    Would you listen to The World Peace Diet again? Why?

    I discovered The World Peace Diet in 2012. I had been vegetarian for a year and became vegan while listening to this book. The overall feeling was of coming home at last. I resonated with the ideas Will Tuttle presents, and I was also challenged by perspectives that I had never thought of. It is a thought-provoking and life-changing book.


    What other book might you compare The World Peace Diet to and why?

    Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows, by Melanie Joy.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is read by the author, who is not a professional reader. You can sometimes feel it, but I much prefer his sensitive reading to someone who just does the job.

  • Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism

    Story

    Carnism is the belief system, or ideology, that allows us to selectively choose which animals become our meat, and it is sustained by complex psychological and social mechanisms. Like other "isms", carnism is most harmful when it is unrecognized and unacknowledged. Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows names and explains this phenomenon and offers it up for examination. Unlike the many books that explain why we shouldn't eat meat, Joy's book explains why we do eat meat.

    Lenore says: "Intro to the term carnism."
    "Great book, odd reading"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows to be better than the print version?

    I like both the audio and the print versions, the audio for when I drive and the print for when I want to refer to specific passages


    What did you like best about this story?

    Melanie Joy is very intelligent, knowledgeable, and thinks outside the box. Her book is revolutionary.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too affected, unnatural reading


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It makes me think!
