In this valuable companion to the award-winning documentary Forks Over Knives, doctors T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. present a practical and sensible solution to their ground-breaking research on how to reverse and prevent various chronic conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes: adopt a whole-foods, plant-based diet. They do a fantastic job of explaining why a plant-based diet is more beneficial than the Standard American Diet and offer a wide range of delicious recipes to help people get started. In addition, they include a number of inspiring testimonials of people whose health has improved drastically as a result of adopting this life-changing diet.

At first glance, one might assume that this is the kind of book that would only appeal to font geeks, graphic designers, and other artsy types. Let me start by saying that this assumption could not be further from the truth. In this unique and enlightening book, Simon Garfield tackles a seemingly dry subject in a clever, informative, and wildly entertaining manner. He not only traces the history of fonts from their earliest days, but he brings them to life by discussing the artisans who created them. He points out the surprisingly large impact typefaces have on viewers, using concrete examples that are bound to surprise and intrigue you. I can honestly say that this book changed my whole perception of the written word from both a tactile and historical point of view.

In this beautifully crafted book, dynamic German street art duo Hera and Akut have pieced together a stunning collection of paintings, sketches, anecdotes, and reflections on art and its place in the world. Documenting the second half of their collaboration years in the form of a scrapbook, it takes viewers on “a trip through some dark times in the urban art genre” in a deeply personal and highly original way. Both heartfelt and poetic, it is a must for anyone interested in contemporary art.

While we can all benefit from eating in ways that will help us to keep our blood sugar levels balanced, it is especially important for those with diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions rooted in insulin imbalance.
