Data driven!!! Human and social liberal, fiscal conservative, of the old school. I like non-fiction, history and science, but sometimes read fiction. Favorite book is 100 Years of Solilitude.

    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"
    "You know where the author stands on what to eat"

    Story
    What did you like best about The Vegetarian Myth? What did you like least?

    The best thing about this book is the author is clear on what she believes. The least is that it is repetitive, and too sweeping in its generalizations.


    What other book might you compare The Vegetarian Myth to and why?

    Other non-scientific books on the ethics and health of what you eat.


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Do you think The Vegetarian Myth needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    This book needs a counter argument since the author not only criticizes vegetarians, but also takes a hammer to agriculture, modern society in general, and the cause of heart problems.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was written by a former vegan, and she pulls no punches in condemning the practice on health and practical terms. She recognizes the sincere intent of vegans, just thinks them misguided and ill informed. But if you read the whole book, her attack does not stop with vegans.
