It was some twenty years ago that I was given the first edition of this excellent book, and have since bought the updated version since my copies get lent out so much I needed to have one copy on hand.
We are laco-ova vegetarians which means we have some free range hens which we have that weed the gardens and also provide us with eggs, and I buy raw milk from a friend and make yogurt. Although I am now learning how to do this with soy milk as well.
Diet For A Small Planet is in tune with our lifestyle, which is based on live light on the earth but also eat healthy and happy.
The one recipe in this book that we make so often and is a winner at potlucks and gatherings with friends is the Potato Egg Bake, which is better than any potato dish we have ever had. The Buttermilk, mushrooms and seasoning make it a winner with men who are often the pucky eaters.
The other aspect of the book that I respect is the author explaining in a none preachy way how eating low on the food chain actually gets us closer to the nutriants the soil gives us. The book also explians why eating vegetarian is less expense in the long run, and that contrary to some beliefs such a lifestyle is very delicious and easier than running out for fast food. And having grown up in a hunting family and one involved with raising black angus I can tell you that raising l lb of all nutricious non-meat food is more cost effective to the earth than raising l lb of beef, chicken, lamb, pork etc.
This is one of those books you need in your home library, as it will remain a great source of information for years to come. And how nice to have a book written in a style that doesn't slam meat eaters, but simply tries to educate and inform.

The recipes are reasonable, but the real issue in vegetarian diets isn't protein - instead the problem comes from the reduced availability of iron and other minerals.
The economics are simplistic; even if every American quit eating meat products tomorrow, the Third World countries are unlikely to quit growing cash crops and instead grow food for their populations. The sentiments are nice, and warm and fuzzy, and the author's heart, is in the right place.

Oh gosh what can one say about a book that is so insightful and factually sound? I commend Ms. Lappe for pulling together all the data contained in this book. She does not preach nor try to change anyone's mind. The info contained in the book reminded me of that old line "just the facts please." I believe she focused on protein because it is "lack of protein if we don't eat meat" (not vitamins, minerals, iron, etc.) that scare people about giving up meat. Ms. Lappe includes charts and facts and figures -- all kinds of information -- to reassure the reader that plant eaters can in fact get adequate protein from veggies -- minus the artery-clogging fat. Certainly, one gets plenty of vitamins and other nutients from plant/grain foods. Perhaps we bring our personal baggage along when reading such a book. I believe it is wasteful to feed grain to animals when people worldwide are starving and I doubt the earth can continue to support such wastefulness. So I welcome books such as this. Each person should think over the issues then decide. If one decides to stop eating meat or to cut back on the amount eaten, this book is loaded with information to help with food combining in the plant/grain families to make sure one will get the necessary nutrients. The recipes are included to help us along, and I will be referring to them and this book often in the coming weeks (or months!) Ms. Lappe's philosophy gets 5 stars too. I highly recommend this book.

If god was able to recomend a book for how to live, and the bible wasn't available this would do for practical purposes when it comes to the parts about eating. I spent years trying to lose weight to feel beautiful. My vanity guided me to everything from weight watchers, to Jenny, Atkins and Phen Phen. After more faliure, I gave up on my vanity and need for outside approval (it wasn't working anyway) one day I finally said screw it. On the next day I found this book at a yard sale for free. This book gave me practical ways to a happy and healthy body for me and my kids. I've never felt better- it's so simple that I scoff at any way to lose weight that dosen't pretty much say just follow nature's way and don't pig out. I also would like to see a planet that is able to sustain our kids. My old methods of eating would have contributed to the planets demise. I can't save the world, but I can act responsibly for my own peace of mind. This book is a way to make a vegitarian lifestyle appealing, satisfying, and fun. This attack of sanity has now caused me to be a happier & healthier person. (I'm also pretty slender) If your smart this book can give you tips to simplify your eating, feel healthier and thus happier.(it is also likely to save you money on your grocery bill and reduce wasteful packaging on processed foods)

This is one very informed lady. She has been studying food for decades, and has a mountain on interesting (scary really) facts (statistics, not opinions) to share. Granted, she promotes vegitarianism, but she does not try to force it down your throat. This book is not a over passionate rally-the-troops book, it is a point by point factual account of that state of the world food situation. If you are or want to be a vegitarian, definitely buy this book. Even if you are just an interested observer, still buy it. You will be amazed at the little known facts presented here.

Das Buch entlarvt die Probleme bei der Umverteilung der Nahrungsmittel auf diesem Planeten und zeigt deutlich wie unser westlicher Lebensstil am Hunger in der dritten Welt beteiligt ist, bzw. dass er der Grund dafür ist, Es entlarvt schonungslos die Zusammenhänge zwischen den Abhängigkeiten von Weltmarktpreisen und Monokulturen und läßt dem verstehenden Menschen nur eine Wahl: kein Fleisch mehr essen, da die Nahrungsmittel viel besser für die Menschen gebraucht werden, die sonst in Masthaltung verfüttert werden. EIin Augenöffner.

I know it sounds corny, but this book really did change my life. I am now a vegetarian, and will be one until I die, largely because of reading Diet for a Small Planet 6 years ago. This book decribes and illuminates the effects that meat-eating has on the world - economic, environmental, and social. I defy anyone to read this book and still feel comfortable with eating meat.
