Review

“Accessibly written, rationally argued and focused on action over rhetoric, the book will interest parents, foodies, economists, committed vegetarians, moral omnivores, environmentalists, health enthusiasts and anyone interested in actually doing something about climate change while government responses stagnate. An essential toolkit for readers looking for a pragmatic climate-response action plan of their own.”—"Kirkus"

“Responsibly researched and cogently articulated… an impeccable, informative, and inspiring contribution to the quest for environmental reform.”—"Booklist" (starred)

“Anna Lappé’s "Diet for a Hot Planet "does for the present generation what her mother’s "Diet for a Small Planet "did for the last: empower us to think in a new way about how food affects our own health as well as that of the planet.

"Anna Lappe's "Diet for a Hot Planet "does for the present generation what her mother's "Diet for a Small Planet "did for the last: empower us to think in a new way about how food affects our own health as well as that of the planet. Her inspiring book makes it clear that food choices matter to climate change and that each of us, voting with our forks, can make a real difference in ensuring a more sustainable food system. I want all my students to read this powerful book."--Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University, and author of "What to Eat"

"Anna Lappe hits this hot topic straight on and she has a cool real food solution."--Nina Planck, author of "Real Food"

"In this tour-de-force, Anna Lappe provides readable, lively, and much-needed answers to question that all too few of us understand: how does our food affect the planet? By guiding us with a sure hand through the fog of claims-and-counterclaims around climate change and agriculture, she inoculates us from the corporate lies that stand between us and a just, sustainable, and delicious food system. Although this diet is easily gobbled in a single sitting, its lessons will stay with you for a lifetime."--Raj Patel, author of "The Value of Nothing" and "Stuffed and Starved"

"Nothing is more important than connecting the way we eat to global warming. After all, food is an everyday need for everyone. Anna Lappe shows us that eating with intention is our responsibility and our pleasure."--Alice Waters

"As Anna Lappe reveals in this important book, we must be conscious of what we eat--not only for our own health, but for the health of the planet. When it comes to climate change, junk food may prove even more destructive than S.U.Vs. Lappe's message is timely and empowering. Instead of waiting for politicians to do the right thing, we can make simple changes to our diet, enjoy it, and help change the world."--Eric Schlosser, author of "Fast Food Nation" and "Reefer Madness"
