Product description

Review

"The Vegetarian Myth by Lierre Keith has taken a drubbing by some vegans and vegetarians but I think it is a brilliant book about the reality of eating on this planet . . . . A very worthwhile immersion." --Alice Walker, alicewalkersgarden.com

"[Vegetarian Myth] is one of the most important books people, masses of them, can read, as we try with all our might, intelligence, skill, hope, dream, and memory, to turn the disastrous course the planet is on." --Alice Walker, prize-winning author, The Color Purple



"Everyone who eats should read this book. Everyone who eats vegetarian should memorize it . . . This is the single most important book I've ever read on diet, agriculture, and ecology." --Aric McBay, author, What We Leave Behind

"In The Vegetarian Myth ex-vegan Lierre Keith argues that saving the planet and ending the suffering found in factory farms can not be achieved by refusing to eat animals, it can only be achieved by boycotting modern agricultural practices, which Keith calls 'the most destructive thing that people have done to the planet.'" --www.mercola.com

"This book saved my life . . . [It] offers us a way back into our bodies, and back into the fight to save the planet." --Derrick Jensen, author, Endgame

"We may not want to face the facts, but Keith sees this as no excuse to stay in denial. If delivered as a speech, you could see that no one in the audience would be [seated] at the end. I have never seen such rousing prose." --www.ZoeHarcombe.com (August 7, 2011)
