The Earth Is My Patient has gotten rave reviews from its readers and fans of Mr. Arieti alike! Most readers I feel have a difficult time with informative books if it isn’t a part of their profession or schooling. I find that when an author can use humor to engage their readers people generally have a better understanding of the points being presented. Although I have yet to read this book, the reviews of it say that the humorous spin put on the very well researched and illustrated points make The Earth Is My Patient a very enjoyable read.
Description: The Earth Is My Patient
is a brilliantly conceived book about the real causes of environmental pollution and their solutions. Many of the ideas in his book are based on Mr. Arieti’s own experience and knowledge. Written in both a serious and tongue and cheek manner this book is guaranteed to make the reader more aware of his/her environment as well as make him think. This is a must read for politicians, men, women and children who want to see a cleaner earth and a bright future. Mr. Arieti correctly assumes that if the environment goes, we all will go.
