Product Description
Who thought there was humor and creativity hidden in the Periodic Table of the Elements? Artist Simon Patterson has found it in this endlessly intriguing little book with a black cover, in which he color-codes the symbols for the periodic table and then replaces the name of the element with a well-known person whose initials or spelling somehow match. For example, Br (Bromine) becomes Bertold Brecht, Hf (Hafnium) is Henry Fonda and Tb (Terbium) morphs into Theda Barabut what do these celebrities have to do with their elements? Patterson fills his book with red herrings, mysteries and riddles that test the reader's knowledge and expose the inherent human desire to establish order and meaning out of the least likely material. ...

Product Description
Vegetarians Didn't Choose Their Diet — it Chose Them!

Are we herbivores designed to acquire our foods exclusively from the plant kingdom? Plant Roots compiles the evidence in an original presentation to answer the question.

From the contrasting properties of plant and animal foods, to their contrasting effects on our health and the environment. From concrete science and studies, to the logical interpretation of nature and religion. From human evolution and anatomy, to the diets of other countries and cultures. From how economic interests have influenced our food choices, to how human empowerment can eclipse them. When the information is assembled the pieces fit like a jigsaw puzzle and the picture is unmistakable.

What diet we choose might be our most critical life choice. We can’t afford to be wrong. We can’t afford not to read Plant Roots. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the vegan "Bible";)
This book is an EXCELLENT reference book for the many reasons that veganism is the way to go whether it is for environmental, ethical, evolutionary, religious, health/medical, or other reasons.Though the author is sometimes sarcastic (and some people don't "get" sarcasm apparently), it is well-researched and sourced.(Though some of the citations don't match the sourced information 100% of the time.)I would recommend this book to anyone, vegan or not, who wants to learn just how important a plant-based diet is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Plant Roots is proof as to the human animal and our diet
Plant Roots will be a great reference book for me in years to come.I love having it by my side to continue to read and go through.Many answers to my questions are all in this book.I have recommended this book to many.George Eisman R.D. is the one that brought it to my attention at the Vegetarian Summerfest 2006.He sure knows what he is talking about.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best treatise on veganism, environmentalism, etc.
This has just become one of my favorite books of all time, dealing with the subjects of vegetarianism, veganism, animal rights, ecology, the environment, world hunger and other areas. Yes, this book deals with all of these subjects. And all in one place for easy reference. This book has obviously been very well-researched and is extensively documented with numerous footnotes at the end of the book. Yet this book provides timeless (and timely) information in a very concise, and at times humorous, way. It definitely is very effective at getting the point across to anyone reading it. I highly recommend this book to everyone, both to my fellow vegans and to all the wannabes out there, as well as to everyone in between. This book provides the solid information and evidence you need in dealing with those people who constantly ask questions and who sometimes want to argue with you about our lifestyle choice. By way of comparison, in giving you the detailed information you need, this book is the M16 of books in a world of flint-lock guns. The book contains irrefutable logic. And at this price, and for being a genuine treasure trove of knowledge, it is a real bargain! Get a copy for yourself and for anyone you care about - because you will not be wanting to lend out your copy to anyone. It's that good!
As for the reviewer below, he (or she) obviously never read the book or even purchased it, to make such asinine accusations against it. This book's message is very clear and comprehensible to anyone who made it out of the first grade! This book proves, beyond ANY reasonable doubt, that we are in fact - by nature - fruit-, nut- and seed-eaters. There is no way around that. Read the book to find out why. :)

2-0 out of 5 stars A confused political diatribe
Bowlby intermingles and confuses a variety of separate issues. The book is advertised as an evaluation of why the human body is designed for eating plant foods. In fact the book wanders far afield and spends too much time discusssing issues that are not relevant. The ethical issues of eating meat, the economical issues associated with eating meat and the political issues associated with eating meat are COMPLETELY UNRELATED to whether our bodies are designed to eat meat. If our bodies are designed to eat meat, then we have to eat meat, a fact that Bowlby cannot comprehend.

5-0 out of 5 stars An unapologetic manifesto advocating sweeping dietary change
In Plant Roots: 101 Reasons Why The Human Diet Is Rooted Exclusively In Plants, Rex Bowlby strongly advocates the consumption of a vegan diet - one consisting of plant-based foods alone, with no meat, milk, or eggs. Articulately defending the vegetarian diet as healthier, more economical, better for the environment, and less likely to spread disease, Plant Roots is stringent and unashamed in its denouncement of the physical and social ills caused by meat, milk, and egg consumption, ranging from the callous disregard of animal (or dairy cow) life, to cultural and social issues of food processing technologies and practices, to the threat of food-borne diseases and increased bacteria resistance to antibiotics caused by eating antibiotic-treated meat. An unapologetic manifesto advocating sweeping dietary change, Plant Roots is a welcome and seminal addition to personal and professional Vegetarian Studies reading lists, as well as community and academic Health & Nutrition Studies library reference collections. ...
