There is today a profound hunger for precisely the information, the advice, and the perspectives in The New Good Life. I can think of few people with the authority to speak about the benefits of a leaner, wiser, healthier way of living. The literature on frugal, simple, conscious living is extensive now and throughout the American story but John Robbins brings so many unique talents and perspectives that his book is sure to be a bestseller and a best-loved resource.
