Books that changed our lives

Hi,

Wow, you know how some books just switch things up in such a clear, succinct and creative way that they dramatically change your understanding of the world? Here are a few books which have that impact on us.

Orientalism – Edward Said

The Omnivores Dilemma – Michael Pollan

Animal Liberation – Peter Singer

Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating – Jeffrey M. Smith

Imperial Ambitions – Noam Chomsky

Seven Years in Tibet – Heinrich Harrer

The Long Walk – Slavomir Rawicz (This book inspired us to embark on a 100km long walk in Switzerland. It was amazing, also changed our lives.)

The Weather Makers – Tim Flannery

Sacred Places: How the Living Earth Seeks Our Friendship – James Swam, Introduced by James Lovelock

No-Nonsense Guides in general are amazing, but specifically, ‘to World Food’ and ‘to world history’.

Enjoy reading, it helps us all understand our own path in context
