This book was life changing. After being a vegetarian for 17 years, not knowing if I could ever make the jump to vegan, this book made it extremely easy. Learning the seedy underbelly of the meat and dairy industries is an opportunity rarely given outside of PETA. I'm grateful to have been introduced to this book, and have been vegan ever since.

Not a diet book -- a classic on the ecological, personal, and ethical ramifications of meat consumption, done with great compassion and ludicity. Highly recommended!

This is a stellar book that really makes you think about the problem of factory farming and consuming animal protein in general. The only reason it's not a 5-star rating is because the studies cited are older and it makes the book dated. More compelling new research is out there further supporting Robbins' thesis that we need to move towards a plant-based diet for the health of our planet. That's why he wrote Food Revolution, to further his work (which is 5 stars to me). Diet For A New America is an excellent book, filled with truly must-read information if you really want to know what what's on your table is doing to the world around you.

Thought-provoking reading about the food industry, and the problems with reliance on animal foods as the mainstay of our diets.
