    You have to admire anyone who uses the term New Age unselfconsciously I picked up this book at a used bookstore in 2006 because I wanted to nudge myself toward raw foods Despite the kookiness I guess in a way this book was successful because his enthusiasm is adding to my motivation to go raw Heck I had raw lasagna for lunch YummyI did appreciate chapter 3 Some notable raw foodists and their teachings for some historical perspective that can be lacking in the recent books this one dates from 1990 In particular I will attempt to check out the book Raw Eating by Arshavir Ter Hovannessian and the work of Arnold Ehert whom Alexander describes as enthusiastic And how could I pass up Viktoras Kulvinskas's book Survival into the 21st Century which Alexander says has become an all time New Age classic
