Argues that the biggest challenge to survival is faulty thinking about the environmental crises that are affecting the planet and offers "thought leap" that will transform one's eco-mind.
Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering.
We humans have found ourselves in a dire situation, says Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet. Our population continues to increase, global warming and other environmental catastrophes loom in our near future, and we lack the proper mind set to correct our past mistakes. She asserts that our ways of viewing the world directly conflict with what we now know to be the truth about how our world works.

This book, aimed at a general audience, introduces readers to an ecologically sound way of viewing the world and our relationship with it.
