Publisher's Summary

Paul Shapiro gives you a front-row seat for the wild story of the race to create and commercialize cleaner, safer, sustainable meat - real meat - without the animals. From the entrepreneurial visionaries to the scientists' workshops to the big business boardrooms - Shapiro details that quest for clean meat and other animal products and examines the debate raging around it.

Since the dawn of Homo sapiens some quarter million years ago, animals have satiated our species' desire for meat. But with a growing global population and demand for meat, eggs, dairy, leather, and more, raising such massive numbers of farm animals is woefully inefficient and takes an enormous toll on the planet, public health and certainly the animals themselves.

But what if we could have our meat and eat it, too? The next great scientific revolution is underway - discovering new ways to create enough food for the world's ever-growing, ever-hungry population.

A must read and/or listen

This book is a fascinating insider look in to possibly the most important technological discovery ever made. The style of writing translates very well to audiobook format and the narration is great. Highly recommended.
