The first time I saw Christina Pirello she was preparing one of her easy-to-navigate, vegan recipes in a newly renovated kitchen, while being serenaded by a musician whose song choices not only set the mood for whatever feast she had planned, but also highlighted her Italian descent. It was awesome! I instantly hit the record button on my remote and began looking forward to my weekly hour in Christina’s kitchen. I also started reading her books.
Pirello is famous in the vegan community for having beat the cancer she was told would kill her, when she drastically changed her diet and lifestyle to one of compassion and veganism, and was rewarded with renewed health and vigor.
Along with her success story, she has also become known for her matter-of-fact, educational approach and passionate stand on veganism for the preservation of human health, the environment, and of course, the lives of animals. Her new book does not disappoint.
I’m Mad As Hell is on par with all of Pirello’s previous work, and surpasses expectations with the unbiased research and knowledge that she offers her readers. It doesn’t matter how much you think you already know: organic, GMO’s, pesticide and herbicide residue, pharmaceutical companies, government health agencies . . . it is all here for your consideration and in truth, aggravation. If you read this book, most likely you’ll be mad as hell too, and maybe you (or your family and friends) will finally be ready to do something about it.
A must read, no matter how long you have been vegan or if you are new to this life. Let Pirello help reinforce what you may already know, or educate you on a level you may not have thought possible. It’s time to take control, and Pirello can show you how.
