Editorial Reviews Review “Greenberg elucidates the mechanisms behind the incredibly popular dietary supplement, examines its impact on the ocean, and embarks on a personal experiment to get to the bottom of an array of health claims. The result is informative and fun (and yes, surprisingly perfect for the beach!)”—Civil Eats “Greenberg’s narrative maneuvers the world of omega-3 fatty acids with a healthy dose of skepticism and a mission to uncover truth that lies under the waves. . . . Greenberg gives us science writing with heart.”—Sierra magazine “Popular writers often extol the benefits of omega-3s. Greenberg reviews the shaky evidence and delivers a penetrating analysis of its science, business, and future. . . . Greenberg also includes specifics of a healthy, life-extending diet; it requires omega-3s—but not in pill form. . . . An expert review of the human exploitation of marine life.”—Kirkus “The angles for looking at omega-3s are many. The Omega Principle is a welcome one-stop shop, evaluating the science underlying its status as nutritional darling, the massive supplement industry behind it, and the fragile ecosystems propping that industry up. If you take fish oil, eat fish, or follow the arrow of conventional nutritional science, this is a topic you owe it to yourself to research. . . . Greenberg’s conversational writing style makes his books anything but an academic exercise.”—Medium “Paul Greenberg’s book ranges widely and with great gusto—from fisheries halfway across the globe to academic conferences on metabolism and longevity—to tell the story of supplements, dietary fads, quackery, and the future of human health. This is an important, entertaining, and wonderfully crafted work.”—Siddhartha Mukherjee “It takes no small measure of writing skill to make a book about fatty acids gripping. To be honest, I have never been drawn to the subject and tend to avoid people who use the phrase “omega 3.” And yet Paul Greenberg has written a book on the subject that is engaging and important, a book that is a pleasure and should be read.”—Mark Kurlansky “The Omega Principle encapsulates all the complexity and intricacies of our broken food system with the story of one (seemingly) simple supplement. Paul Greenberg takes us on another brilliant deep dive with an entirely new lens. This book demands our attention.”—Dan Barber “Paul Greenberg goes searching for the secret to longevity, and what he learns is, in many ways, more interesting. The Omega Principle should be read by anyone who cares about human health or the health of the planet, which is to say everyone.”—Elizabeth Kolbert July 11, 2018 Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase The Omega Principle is a brilliant and engaging book that works on many levels: as a rousing environmental manifesto, a moving midlife memoir, and a gripping historical narrative about the shifting tides of geopolitical power. Greenberg writes fluidly about how we are going to hell in a handbasket – overfishing our oceans and exhausting ourselves – and hoping that we can magically reverse years of unhealthy habits with a daily golden capsule of fish oil, that, by the way, is produced by destroying the bedrock species of little fish upon which our larger ocean ecosystems depend. His writing is full of fascinating asides and, although this is a meticulously researched non-fiction book, it reads like a great novel. Some of the most interesting characters: 18th century explorer Alexander von Humboldt, the last doomed Incan emperor Atahualpa, rich guy turned ocean activist dubbed Jet Ski Brian, and, of course, Greenberg himself. In the closing lines, Greenberg says poetically of the people he’s encountered while writing The Omega Principle: “Even in the face of cataclysm, their central mission was to realize completely lived lives.” A good reminder to us all. READ THIS BOOK! If typical summer reading recs get you down – too flimsy or frothy – this is the book for you. A funny and fascinating page-turner that equips you with information to lead a healthier and happier life and engage more deeply with the world around you.
