Reviews

Read this book. Saving Planet Earth starts right here, right now * Stella McCartney *
We Are The Weather: Saving The Planet Begins At Breakfast is optimistic not because Foer minimises the crisis, but because of his claim that ordinary people have a chance of ameliorating it . . . I have not had meat at lunch since I read the book, and that makes me feel even better than having solar panels. * The Times *
A warning: this is a life-changing book and will alter your relationship to food forever * Observer *
Since I finished the book I have been following his advice. I hope others will too. The future of the planet is in our hands - or rather, it's on our plates * The Times *
Jonathan Safran Foer has laid down an urgent challenge with this book. Thought-provoking, humane and incisive, We Are the Weather confronts our personal entanglement in the climate crisis through the food on our plates. A necessary book about the way we eat and the enormous difference our daily choices can make. -- Julian Hoffman
Safran Foer's new approach, measured and moderate, gives me hope * Observer *
In a style rarely found in books about global catastrophe, [Foer] interweaves personal stories, bulleted factoids and a delicious serving of metaphor. The effect is dazzling. * The Washington Post *
Eye-opening . . . In this follow-up to his influential Eating Animals, [Foer] brings both personality and passion to an issue that no one has figured out how to address in a way that inspires an adequate response. * The New York Times Book Review *
Beautiful, powerful writing that's made me rethink the way I eat. -- Samin Nosrat, author of Salt, Fat, Acid Heat
Foer's message is both moving and painful, depressing and optimistic * Publisher's Weekly *
Foer's new book urges the reader gently towards incremental adjustments - the idea being that if enough of us observe them, difference can be made * Monocle *
