More than ever before meat is making headlines. Contamination cases are on the rise, obesity has become pandemic and industrial livestock farming is the cause of 20% of greenhouse emissions. It is little wonder that vegetarianism has moved from the fringes to the mainstream as evidence accumulates in favour of the many benefits of meatlessness. Multi-platinum musician Moby, one of the world's most famous vegans, brings together 10 leading foodies, doctors, politicians and business leaders to create a concise guide to making informed choices about meat consumption.

This book is very short and easy to read. Each of the short chapters is written by someone involved with animal welfare, written mostly, but not entirely, by vegans/vegetarians.

If I'd known this was going to be a 'bunny hugger' lecture on why all meat is evil and everyone who eats is evil as well, I never would have bothered to pick this up. I've no problem with vegans or vegetarians, but don't try to tell me how incorrect I am because I do raise my own meat, milk and eggs for my family. I don't lecture you, please don't lecture me.
