This is a remarkable book, filled with most important data...and it is so readable! I would not hesitate to say that it is the best resource available in that it incorporates in a comprehensive way the interconnection of diet, agricultural techniques , animal welfare, environmental effects as well as the detrimental effects of corporate abuses in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries of poisoning of our environment , our food ,water and air and contributing to our increasing ill health. Thank you. It is not only informative but a wake-up call.

A well-researched and refreshing dose of clarity amidst an international ocean of confusion about what humans should be eating. In no other book will you find such a comprehensive discussion of the five key factors that should be driving our food choices—beginning with our own health— and followed by respect for all life, the environment, social justice and the wisdom of ancient traditions."

We see lots of books referred to as "the book for our times." Eating As If All Life Matters is, in fact, the book for our times. From climate change to food and health to politics, Bill writes a road map out of the mess we've created.Does it require change? Yup. Big change? Yup. Without the kind of common sense thinking and change Bill espouses in this book, we will continue our collective downward spiral. A culimination of a lifetime of work and research, Bill's words uplift, educate and empower us to be our best selves and create the lives we want to live and world we wish to live in.
