    Story
    (62)

    We’ve been told that a vegetarian diet can feed the hungry, honor the animals, and save the planet. Lierre Keith believed in that plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we’ve been led astray - not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance. e truth is that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil - the basis of life itself....

    J. S. White says: "Interesting take on sustainability"
    "Eye opening."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Vegetarian Myth to be better than the print version?

    I havent read the print version so cant compare.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the amount of factual information and statistics that made the arguments strong.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning was good when she talks about the vegan who suggests a fence through the serengeti separating the herbivores from the carnivores.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Agriculture: A matter of life and death.


    Any additional comments?

    The author should write another book. "The Feminist Myth" The only thing I did not like about this book was her down-putting of masculinity as a whole. I completely agree in human rights and that the world is not where it should be as far as equality between the sexes, but I am a man. That is a cultural problem, not testosterone.
