( ) My first question when I was recommended this book was, “Is John Robbins related to Tony Robbins?” No, in fact, John Robbins is related to the founder/owner of Baskin Robbins.
He gave up the partial ownership of family company he was set to inherit. Through his own investigation, he observed what the dairy and meat industry was doing to Americans’ health, his family’s health, the economy, and the environment.
This book delves a little more heavily into the external impacts of the agricultural industry than do other books I’ve read on similar topics. Also, it’s refreshing to see this point of view: someone vehemently choosing their beliefs/facts over the easy riches they could have had.
