5.0 out of 5 stars Save our planet, help yourself, others and not least the animals !!!, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More than 25 years ago I became Vegan primarily for ethical reasons – I had no wish to be a consumer of cruelty to animals. However although health and cost were also issues that I was keenly aware of, back then I was less conscious of the significantly reduced environmental impact of a cruelty-free diet.

Dr Tallman's scrupulously researched book leaves us in no doubt about the huge contrast in the use of natural resources between an animal products (meat and dairy) and plant based diets. In an over populated world where millions go hungry every day and precious environmental assets are being plundered far beyond their limits this bible not only defines the problem but offers a constructive solution.

Currently the real costs of meat and dairy are not factored in and in reality are subsidised by all, especially the poorest of our small planet. Not only does the production drain resources at an unsustainable rate but its waste products overwhelm nature. Vanishing natural aquifers, polluted water courses and an excessive production of greenhouse gasses are direct results of the of this agriculture and especially by its industrialisation. No less important, the extra burden on healthcare is also set out, juxtaposed with a plant based diet, confirming another drain, on human resources. One can only reach the rather unpalatable conclusion that a diet of meat and dairy is intensely selfish – Taking the lives and dignity of animals, devastating the environment and pulling others from more productive work into caring for the self-made sick.

Whilst the use and abuse of animals should never be overlooked or dismissed, neither should the consequences of their farming. The book is a sober reminder of what many chose to conveniently deny, clearly setting out how we can tame agriculture's exploitation of land, water and air, whilst simultaneously improving our health and society.

Sadly Dr Tallman's excellent tome is more likely to be preaching to the converted when it is an urgent read for our politicians, anyone with a concern for the environment and an essential academic textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chunky, durable and good value, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just love this garlic press !!!
As I use loadsa Garlic any press has to be pretty durable and this one apparently is - so far !!!
- All the others I've had have fallen to bits sooner or later including an expensive Kuhn Rikon press ...
It certainly is 'chunky'.
The only possible downside is that it takes a bit of care and time to wash properly but this is a small price to pay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers' 2003 double DVD instead., 25 Jan. 2015
Reluctantly giving this 3 stars. I wanted to like it more but ... There is too much awful cheesy footage of Plant poncing about ... The video is only 720 x 576, so definitely NOT 'HD' ... it looks grainy too (processed from film to digital presumably) and the audio is only sampled at 192 kbps which is lower MP3.

Zep did rock and Madison Square Garden 1973 probably was one of their best gigs but this lets them down sadly. Maybe the remastered version is superior as my copy has the cover in French so the 'edition' is unknown. I would also hope that Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers' double DVD of 2003 is much better ...
