Recommended Readings (1) – John Robbins

Read in Chinese (Simplified)

Ok, I got to make a list of some of the books that have touched me deeply. This 1st post on recommendations will be dedicated to John Robbins. Below are images of 4 of his books: Diet for a New America, The Food Revolution, Healthy at 100 and Reclaiming Our Health.

I’ve only read the Diet For A New America and The Food Revolution; I hope to read the other two soon too.*

If you are not yet acquainted with him, if you haven’t read any of his books… … no room for hesitation here, GO GRAB ONE. I guarantee it will be one of the best books you need to read in your whole life.

In fact, we have extra copies of Diet For A New America and The Food Revolution to lend out, if anyone is keen to borrow…

These books are for anyone who is human, who wants to live happier, who wants to find meaning in life. I’m not exaggerating. Only when we see how intricately we are all inter-connected can we see how, through something as simple as eating, we can make a significant difference in our own lives and the lives of others, as well as to the future of the world we are passing on to our children and grandchildren. There’s no room for denial, we are all a part of it, we are all leading actors, the difference is only whether you are aware of it or still UNblissfully ignorant. If you love your family, if you love the children of the future… read these books.

I can’t find the right words to describe him. He’s one of the greatest men alive. His profound wisdom, great courage, and deep compassion for the earth, for the animals, for us humans, have led so many of us out of our ignorance and self deceit. It is because of people like him that there is hope for the future.

I’ve copied two links to an interview with him:

*Update: Sadly, it is already September 2014, and I have yet to read any of his other books.

    He’s a hero indeed… for the welfare of animals, humans and the planet. I remember first coming into contact with the vege ideal by reading excerpts of ‘Diet for a New America’ in a book. Just reading that book alone made me vege almost overnight.
