I agree - this is a journey we take for ourselves, but it never hurts to have company.
The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics is funny, informative, and has recipes. I recommend it.
But yes - I consider "Confessions of a Kamikaze Cowboy" required reading. At least twice. I'm going to read it again (3rd or 4th time), once my Mrs. finishes it...
