I was intrigued by a CNN story by Dr. Sanjay Gupta called ???The Last Heart Attack.??? As I am a 58 year old male, this story peaked my interest and I began researching the various diets and their health benefits. Fortunately, I found this audio book right off the bat. I am now listening to the book for the 2nd time, since it is all new to me it takes a while for the information to settle in. So, my review is not intended to compare one resource to another, but I want to say that the book was exactly what I am looking for.
Kathy Freston makes the information personal and interesting and the book narrator is expressive without going overboard. It is obvious that Kathy Freston is passionate about the subject, but does not hit you over the head with a harsh, negative position. Instead, she provides a very rounded perspective of the vegan lifestyle and how they (we) fit into the mainstream, as well as interviews with leading experts on the subject. She also answers some of my questions. How do I relate to people now that I do not eat meat? Will I be considered odd? How do I handle invitations to someone's house for dinner or a cookout? Kathy has made me want to continue the vegan journey. I recommend this book.
