Publisher's Summary

In the 1980s T. Colin Campbell, PhD, codirected a study of more than four dozen diseases and 367 items of socioeconomic, lifestyle, nutrition, and genetic information across a population of 6,500 adults in rural China, generating more that 8,000 statistically significant associations. Those groundbreaking results, along with many other research projects described in the best-selling book The China Study, support the theory that a whole-food, plant-based diet is linked to lower rates of chronic disease.

More than a million people across the world have read The China Study and have been convinced by empirical evidence to adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet. The Campbell Plan goes beyond the why and shows listeners how to make the transition - and enjoy the journey - with practical guidance and a simple plan to make a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle easy and sustainable.

The Campbell Plan is full of the cutting-edge nutritional research that fans of The China Study have come to expect. Dr. Thomas Campbell speaks to the listener about health, weight loss, and the science behind it. He also addresses the biggest difficulties of transitioning to a plant-based diet; the most frequently asked questions he receives from patients, practitioners, and readers; and the most cutting-edge research in nutrition. The Campbell Plan's combination of practical tools and the research-based evidence of The China Study will change people's lives for generations to come.

    "Recipes"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved the content, my only complaint is that the accompanying PDF does not include recipes, only graphs. To obtain the recipes, the listener needs to listen to them being read. Strange and somewhat annoying.

    "Great Book! Great Listening!"

    This was a wonderful book! I really enjoyed how the narrator read the book (However, he read a little slow, I ended listening to the book at 3x speed for this one).

    Dr. Campbell is very fair in his assessments and he lays out the facts in a way where once he makes his conclusions, you feel as though you would have made the same conclusions. This book is scientific but written for all audiences.

    The only gripe I have is who in their right mind would ever be able to listen to the last chapters (recipes). Recipes should be written. Audio books are when I am multitasking, running, or driving. I can't possibly write down all the recipes or remember we them.

    "PDF does not include Recipes or Diet Documents"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Good listen but the PDF should include the writen documents yu need to actually do the siet.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Cabus’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


    Was The Campbell Plan worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The information in the first part of the book is very valuable but the real point of this is to change your diet and lifestyle - author refers to lists of foods and check lists but they are not includedin the PDF. Author also reads the recioes, not particularly helpful - recipes should be in PDF.

    "Need recipes in PDF"
    What did you love best about The Campbell Plan?

    This backed up the book he and his father wrote very well and gives you a bit more of the toolsl that you need to be successful with this life change.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The proof is in the research.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    This book can really change your life if you stick to it.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book but I need the recipes in PDF format. I hope I do not have to go and purchase the book just to get those. I also see that the same complaint is in almost everyone of these reviews but I wonder if anyone is reading them other than the consumers.

    "Grateful for the PDF, but recipes were not include"
    What did you love best about The Campbell Plan?

    What I loved is that The Campbell Plan made applying what was learned in The China Study more accessible for actual application.


    What could Thomas Campbell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It totally irks me when an audible book that has charts, graphs, recipes and other forms of visual information the consumer/reader may need to make the book actually useful, cherry picks what is included in the PDF. In this case, recipes are not included. All that was included were the pie charts and graphs which the written part of the book covered in enough detail that I could easily do without. However, try transcribing several recipes, menus, shopping lists, etc....


    What does Mark Cabus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark Cabus does a good job of relating what might be dry material in a voice that is easy to listen to. Basically, his reading the book to me gives me the ability to listen while I am doing my housework. I would not get to "read" as much if I did not have audio books.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The most interesting tidbit was not really new news, since I have read The China Study twice, and some chapters more than that. What I find interesting is that milk is so harmful to my immune system.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author did not continuously recommend the reader to The China Study. A couple of times would have been fine, but I lost track of how many times he actually said it. Additionally, what is the point of making a book an Audible book, and expensive, if the reader is not allowed access to all of the information because the important stuff was not included in the PDF provided? Isn't that, well, stealing my money? It's a good plan, and I believe in the what the author suggests, but I do not appreciate not being given ALL of the information.

    "1.5 hours of recipes"

    Although the information in this book is good, I advise against getting it in the audio book form. The performance is great, but last three chapters are recipes and listening to 90 minutes of them just doesn't make sense. They are not included in the pdf, so you either have to listen and write them down, or get a printed copy/e-book. Also discounted Kindle companion book is not available for this title, so you'd have to pay full price. So great info, poor execution.

    "PLEASE ADD THE RECIPES IN THE PDF"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not the audio version because the recipes are not available. Book is very interesting nonetheless.


    Any additional comments?

    Review will be updated when recipes are added in the pdf coming with the audio book. Until then, it's pretty useless you can't listen to 1,5hours of recipes.

    "I loved 3/4ths of the Audible book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I think this is a VERY important book and I enjoyed it greatly until I got to the recipes; then, I realized that NOT every book should be audible. The dang recipes are the KEY to living the Campbell Plan and do they expect me to write them down as the narrator speaks them? If you want to "hear" the compelling facts regarding a WFPB diet, listen to the book all the way to the Recipes content. Then go out an buy the dang book. Amazon should chat with the author about getting a pdf of the recipes. The 11-page PDF is excellent support of the initial content, but falls WAY short in helping listeners execute the Plan. I am going to ask Amazon for a refund, which I will apply to the hard back book. For now, I am left hungry.
