The bestselling author of "Quantum Wellness" offers a fresh look at veganism, examining in detail 10 life-changing promises of a plant-based diet to physical and mental health. Includes a chapter on where and what foods to buy.
White turns in a workmanlike performance in this audio version of Freston's guide to the benefits of a plant-based diet. Full of useful tips, practical information, and personal stories about veganism, Freston makes a compelling case for giving up meat and dairy products, but she can present a change in diet as something of a panacea for everything from illness to environmental degradation and spiritual malaise. Karen White's narration is crisp, well-paced and pleasantly cheerful. Her conversational and encouraging delivery works to personalize the book's stories and arguments-all the while eschewing any hint of sanctimony. A useful, very encouraging guide for listeners considering a vegan or vegetarian diet. A Weinstein hardcover. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Freston (www.kathyfreston.com), author of several titles on cleansing, weight loss, conscious eating, and overall physical and spiritual wellness, here presents a treatise on adopting a vegan diet and lifestyle. Less a guidebook or cookbook than a testament to the benefits of being a vegan-e.g., weight loss, improving the planet, achieving emotional balance, and saving animals' lives-the book includes anecdotes from people who have benefited from the switch as well as extensive excerpts from an interview Freston conducted with fellow author/wellness expert Dean Ornish, M.D. (founder & president, Preventive Medicine Research Inst.). Audie Award nominee Karen White delivers an excellent reading of the material, and the production quality of this audio is high. But while the text is informative, it sounds like an infomercial or extended Oprah or Ellen segment-both shows on which the author has appeared-and the lengthy interview portions detract from the narrative flow. Most likely to appeal to fans of Freston and those new to the vegan lifestyle, who will find much of interest here.
