We need to realize that we are interconnected with one another and that we depend on one another for survival. We must love one another unconditionally to survive. Love not only includes humans but all beings. No one is ever excluded, as unconditional love means, by definition, that there are no conditions when it comes to whom or what we love.
The Interconnectedness of Life explores humanity's transformation fro living by killing into living by loving. If we want to live in a more harmonious, loving and compassionate world amongst animals, the earth and one another, we have to awaken to our true selves and realize the underlying reasons for the many human-made problems, that it is the animal foods on our plates and the solution to the problem which is to live vegan. Until we come to the realization that nonhuman animals are not here for us, but rather here with us, and realize that we need to stop seeing them as property, there will never be peace and love on this earth. If the bloodshed towards innocent creatures prevails - wars, environmental devastation, world hunger, disease, and sickness are inevitable.

I love this book. It is on my top ten list. I can't wait to read Michael's other books.
The Interconnectedness of Life connects us to our inner wisdom of love for all life. Not only does the other describe the way animals are treated for food and other products, but that it is also that we use nonhuman animals that is also the issue. Until we love all of God's creatures, we will still be at war with each other. I like how he made it simple and the chapters short for anyone to understand. A great read for everyone who cares about animals and the planet.
This is my vegan bible and it is next to my other book The World Peace Diet. I like how Michael goes into the detail of animal agriculture and how destructive it is on all fronts, to our health, the health of the planet and the animals. I love his story of awakening to veganism. I highly recommend that you read it.
I really love this book. It is an extension of Michael's other book The Journey. It goes into greater detail on why we shouldn't use and kill animals for food. I love the simple and short read. A great book for anyone, at any age.
I would give this book no stars if I could. It is a rambling jumble of quotes pulled from other books and uncited misinformation. I have to conclude that this is just someone's vanity project and not a book that takes seriously any of the topics it tries to discuss. Save your money for one of the many books about veganism written by people with an actual background in health, nutrition, anthropology, and evolutionary biology. You'll find nothing worthwhile here.
