I've been a Vegetarian for over 25 years and this wonderful book shed light on additional steps that I can take to make the world a better place and enhance my overall quality of life.
I loved it and thought that it is well written and thought – provoking, while at the same time, not disparaging those who “don’t get it” but hopefully enlightening them.
I’d highly recommend reading “The World Peace Diet” and wish that it was recommended reading in nutritional classes and schools throughout.
I’m going to be going Vegan at least 1 – 2 days a week for the rest of the year and start moving in that direction.
Informative, detailed, thought provoking. Makes it clear what you should do next. Recommended to anyone who wants a better understanding of how the releationship between food, our cultural, why we eat whay we eat and what our body really needs.
The readers voice is soothing...I might have fallen asleep if not for the content.
This book changed my thinking in ways I did not dream were possible. I have made what I once thought of as an impossible shift in diet and the benefits to my life are clear.
The whole book is beneficial.
The World Peace Diet was hard to listen to. Yes, there were times when I wanted to cry but I am grateful that I am able to be touched in this way.
I wish everyone could hear these words and think about what kind of world we want to live in. I know the world would become a better place.
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.
Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows, by Melanie Joy.
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.
poignant, powerful, and piercing
The revelation that what you do unto others includes all others, not just humans
charismatic, caring, and compassionate
Yes, but it is too lengthy over 12 hours
Better presentation of subject matter.
I am a vegetarian and still could not get interested in the book. I found it to be a very brutal book about the suffering of food animals and droned about this without presenting any solutions.
This is an extremely well-written book. The author is a Ph.D. and every thing he writes is backed up by references, resources and a bibliography. An excellent read. While I'm listening I'm feeling that his words are being channeled from a higher power, seriously!
His performance is masterful, and easy to listen to.
The author speaks about the importance of "leaving home" which is the spiritual practice of questioning our society's values and adopting a higher set of values. He states that this is essential to spiritual progress because it brings the maturity that can lead to higher consciousness, greater compassion, and ultimately, freedom from the delusion of being a fundamentally separate self and the suffering and violence this delusion necessarily causes.
I also like his discussion of infant "indoctrination" and how this forced unawareness becomes a sort of belief system that we "need" to eat animals in order to be comforted, to be healthy and not stand out from the rest of society.
A rationale for evolution.
Only a gifted writer and brilliant thinker could meld science, poetry and spirituality into such a comprehensive approach to what our business as humans should be on our precious planet.
Guy sounds like he's sitting on a towel Indian style smoking some weed. Its a story about slaughter houses, etc...what a waste
"Tough going but really interesting"
This title is very tough going! It goes in to all the gory details of the meat industry from raising the animals to slaughter and packaging and you will need a strong stomach to get through the descriptions. However this is information everybody needs to know and it would shock anybody in to realising that we need to look after ourselves as well as the rest of the animal population in the world. I recommend this title for anyone looking to get healthy while also trying to help the environment.
