Item Description

Own a signed two-book set from the author of Diet for a Small Planet.

Getting a Grip 2 was designated by "The New York Times Book Review" as a must-read in 2008 for the next U.S. president. Frances Moore Lappe's unique take and laser-like logic invite readers to try on a new, invigorating way of seeing the world. With characteristic boldness, she takes on a set of disempowering ideas driving economic and ecological crises, challenging readers to rethink the meaning of power, democracy, and hope itself. 

You Have the Power offers the radical notion that our fears can be a source of energy to create the lives and the world we want. It suggests that now more than ever our lives and the lives of our loved ones seem to be at risk. The normal response is to retreat. But what if fear were not a negative force but a positive one-a source of energy and strength?

Frances Moore Lappé is a democracy advocate and world food and hunger expert who has authored or co-authored 17 books. She is the co-founder of the Small Planet Institute. Her first book, Diet for a Small Planet, has sold three million copies and is considered “the blueprint for eating with a small carbon footprint since long before the term was coined.”
