5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Important Contribution to World Peace and Justice, 30 Oct 2012
This book is remarkable in its scope and implication. Will Tuttle has brought together a thoroughly convincing argument that we really are what we eat - not just individually but collectively as a society and as a species. If you think that the slaughter of billions of animals, birds and fish used for human consumption is sustainable, morally, environmentally or spiritually then I suggest this book will make you think twice. With craft and care Will Tuttle takes us on a journey that is surprising and potentially life-changing to the conclusion that we must move rapidly away from eating flesh, dairy and eggs - if we are to survive. I say that this book is life-changing as it has changed me and what I eat is now plant based (vegan). Don't read it unless you are open minded enough to be thoroughly challenged and changed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A`blueprint for uniting the green movement, 18 Nov 2010
This delightful book skilfully weaves together views that have often been seen as representing differing and conflicting ideas and philosophies based around religion/spirituality, science and new-age thinking. The diverse and interesting contributors (some well known and others less so, but all with something important to say) have been thoughtfully chosen and present what I believe is a very convincing case for finding common ground and blending rational and long-held religious and spiritual ideas with the exciting and ground breaking new world being revealed by modern science.
Can we successfully mix a deep ecological and spiritually heart-based approach to life with practical and rational approaches grounded in sound science? Yes! This is the conclusion that this book presents.
Growing numbers of people are realising that we cannot continue in our present blind way trying to solve the burgeoning environmental problems and growing consequences of human selfishness by employing yesterday's thinking and ways of relating. GreenSpirit - Path to a New Consciousness provides a possible blueprint, cogently offering an holistic, scientific, earth-centred approach and I believe successfully arguing that a sustainable future relies on You, Me and Us Together walking a path to a new consciousness.
If you are at all curous about green sprituality or, are already involved in the green movement but feeling rather jaded and dispirited at the current lack of progress, this is the book for you. Read and enjoy and maybe join GreenSpirit as a growing group of people who think and act differently.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what political vision should be all about, 5 Oct 2009
This review is from: Earth Pilgrim (Hardcover)
Satish Kumar has written a truly great book, easy to read and simple to understand. He has managed to avoid jargon or language that is difficult to engage with - which is a refreshing change. Based on his extensive personal experiences and years of reflection this book, for me, should be read by all who yearn for a more caring and sustainable future - it's radical without being off the wall.
Earth Pilgrim is written as a conversation with several different interviewers, and at first I was sceptical that this format would work - but it does and its very good! Satish argues for a reconnetion with nature, for the development of holisic education (or should than be re-education) for all and, for putting ecology ahead of economy
If you want to hear a refreshing critique of what's gone wrong with out society and to feast on a vision of what can be, then read this lovely and compelling book. It puts forward a manifesto that is quite different than anything that the mainstream politians have to offer - and it just could work!
