Chelsea Green Weekly for May 5, 2017

Ever wonder what your favorite Chelsea Green authors do between writing groundbreaking–both literally and figuratively–books? Here are the best links and resources for your weekend reading pleasure. Let’s start with The Alzheimer’s Antidote.

The Alzheimer’s Antidote

Amy Berger has been making the rounds on the health, wellness, and fitness circuit, explaining the theories behind her revolutionary new book, The Alzheimer’s Antidote. Check out this great conversation Amy shared with David Perlmutter on The Empowering Neurologist Podcast:

Amy also found time to drop by the 40+Fitness podcast, as well as the Ketovangelist podcast. We dare you to listen to these and think about sugar the same way!

Gods, Wasps, and Stranglers

“It’s almost romantic to imagine such a relationship, two units growing and evolving together in domestic harmony. One species of tree and one species of wasp, searching for its match. But that’s about where the metaphor ends; the reality is more grim.”

From The Romantic, Tragic, and Profoundly Gross Evolutionary Tale of the Fig Tree, featuring Gods, Wasps, and Stranglers by Mike Shanahan.

This fascinating conversation between Wendell Berry, Paul Kingsnorth, and Kate Raworth on BBC Radio 4 is 100% worth a listen.

And finally, Kate Raworth explains Doughnut Economics on World Economic Forum.


Ever think to yourself, “Hmm, if only there was a complete and comprehensive guide to keeping a small poultry flock… a bible for backyard chickens, if you will…” According to the Mercola’s Healthy Pets blog there is! And it happens to be The Small-Scale Poultry Flock by Harvey Ussery.

And finally–“No one on the left should design their election strategy without first reading the book Rules for Revolutionaries.” That’s George Monbiot on The Guardian. Pick up your copy of Rules for Revolutionaries here.

Human Scale, Protected Culture, and Donut/Doughnut Day

“What we generally have, in other words, is another example of the state, having taken power into its own hands, sitting on those hands until somebody shoves it off. That minorities are protected as much as they are is due mostly to minorities; that individuals have the opportunities they have is due mostly to individuals; […] Read More

Chelsea Green Weekly for May 12, 2017

Books in the news this week “I tried to draw a picture of humanity thriving in the twenty-first century and — odd though it sounds — it came out looking like a doughnut.
