    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."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The last hour and a half or so was interesting. I enjoyed his ideas on how to begin a program of eating a WFPB diet. I think this book would have been much better if there was more emphasis on his personal experience, lessons learned, strategies, and the day-to-day life of being vegan, especially for a busy professional. He simply mentions in passing his son and other family members with demanding schedules that have made the successful transition to the WFPB diet, but then fails to discuss their experiences or strategies. How does a busy working mother and father accommodate a vegan life style with kids? He superficially touches on helpful ideas, such as eating out, planning meals, making a menu, etc. However these topics were left woefully under developed and were the biggest questions I needed to have answered. If you have an interest in nutrition and have listened/read the books already by authors such Campbell, Pollan, etc the majority of the book will be old news.


    Would you recommend Healthy Eating, Healthy World to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only if they were entirely new to the subject and had not already listened or read other authors on the subject.


    Was Healthy Eating, Healthy World worth the listening time?

    I felt like the majority of the book was simply a book report or re-reporting information of other people. As stated above, I would have really found his experiences and those of his family dealing with their transitional experiences and daily strategies more valuable.
