Chris Hedges has been telling truth to (and against) power since his earliest days as a radical journalist. He is an intellectual bomb-thrower who continues to confront American empire in the most incisive, challenging ways. The kinds of insights he provides into the deeply troubled state of our democracy cannot be found anywhere else.

Given the interview format of the book, hearing it performed by the author and his interviewer was an absolute treat.

Chris Hedges may see the difficulty of life with convictions ahead of him, but his simple rules allow him to look back with unashamed honesty. He became vegan after seeing Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret (now on NETFLIX) -- as did I, once the "blackout imposed by the industry" was revealed. Systemic change and deliverance from neoliberalism requires guidance and Hedges is compelled to lead by example.

Lyman in himself proves that if an "everyday" can make the connection and go vegan then any man can. He will be remembered as a pioneer of both the ethical and climate Vegan movements.

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.

Will Tuttle is so thorough in this book in his topical research and insight. I thought he was going to be too new age for my taste, but I found his spiritual approach to be as palatable as his science and psychology. World Peace Diet gave me hope for the future!
