"I was at Green Festival today in Seattle and attended a talk by Congressman Dennis Kucinich, where he talked about how individuals can make a difference by changing their diet. He recommended your book, The World Peace Diet, and even held up a copy of it for everyone to see, during his talk."--John Stephens

The World Peace Diet - Amazon's #1 Best-seller in March 2010 - offers a compelling and liberating new understanding of our food and our culture. It 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 culture, our food, and the source of our broad range of problems—and the way to a positive transformation in our individual and collective lives. The World Peace Diet is an award-winning book to help us understand the big picture of our culture, why we have the unyielding dilemmas we face, and how we can solve them.
