    Bad writing, on par with a teenage girl's diary.

    I thought the first part was fine. But the ending nutrition part, I have to agree with you. Almost seemed like two different authors to me. Or she got plum tired of research and finished off with a bunch of anecdotal ranting.

    Funny because I hated the first part the worst. I thought the nutrition part saved it.

    I liked it, but my social circle contains a lot of veg*ans, and I could see many of my friends being where she is a few years down the road. I am going to pass it on to my vegetarian brother. He's an eco veggie, so I think it will speak to him.

    I read the first couple of chapters and sort of lost interest. It was interesting tho, especially the parts about how unsustainable and dangerous growing annual ceral grains is. If I were more inclined to argue with vegetarians I would finish it, but Ive already converted six veggies with my cooking, no debate required.

    I thought it was a great book. No, she isn't the best writer and some of her arguments seemed weird (like the one about when you take a fruit of a tree, you are stealing the plant's children). However, I learned a lot about permaculture and the destructive nature of non-perennial agriculture, which were two topics I knew nothing about.

    I think its a great book, and whilst her writing style varies its actually well written because it combines both well backed up factual information with a personal and descriptive perspective. Some parts may not be everyones cup of tea, but its to the point, but and they need to open their mind to different ways of thinking. It tackles the issues from different angles and enlightens you to the most fundamental problems in society rather than just what's making people ill.

    If everyone read this book the world would be a better place.

    Just my opinion
