About The Author
Larry D Cook
Author and video producer Larry Cook became a passionate advocate for natural living in 1990 after reading John Robbins' revolutionary book Diet for a New America. The book changed his life he became a vegetarian, lost 40 pounds and had more energy than ever before. Larry’s success with this lifestyle and subsequent years of research inspired him to publish two magazines devoted to natural living. He hired writers to create custom articles on a wide variety of topics he was passionate about, including the manipulation of our food supply, natural medicine, holistic dentistry and environmental toxins, to name a few.
The Natural Life News & Directory, launched in 2000, now boasts a circulation of 15,000 in Bozeman, Montana, and The EcoVision Journal launched in 2001 enjoyed a wide, loyal readership in Seattle, Washington until it was sold in 2002. In both cities the magazines became a trusted authority on health, environmental and other natural lifestyle issues. Larry’s current book, The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living, is an easy to assimilate encapsulation of the wide and detailed knowledge he published in his magazines.
Larry studied video/film production and photography at Clover Park Vocational-Technical Institute in Tacoma, Washington, and received his bachelor’s degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. In addition to serving as a tireless advocate for natural living, Larry is a photographer and works as a location sound mixer in Los Angeles.
