The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability by Lierre Keith

An impressively researched and cogent  argument against vegetarianism by a former vegan. The book is broken into four parts, each representing four lines of argument: the healthfulness of a vegetarian diet, the financial cost of it compared to eating meat, the environmental impact of grain production, and the ethical issues.

The research is deep. The arguments are strong. And the anecdotes are persuasive.

The only thing I didn’t like about the book was a section at the end where the author bizarrely goes off topic and – without providing a shred of evidence – blames all the evils of the world on white men.
