Organic Living

Michael Van Straten, Author Rodale Press $30 (168p) ISBN 978-0-87596-930-5
Admitting that ""[i]t may be impossible in the modern world to lead a completely organic lifestyle,"" Michael Van Straten (The Good Sleep Guide) argues in Organic Living a lively polemic-cum-how-to that ""every person who takes a step toward organic living makes a difference."" The author, who for 25 years hosted an alternative health call-in show on London's major talk-radio station, explores organic farming, eating and gardening, recycling and eco-friendly household products in the interest of health and the environment. The book should attract interest, especially given the recent uproar over genetically modified foods. Photos not seen by PW. (Aug. 8)
