This was the “must read” book of the season a few years ago, when models and actors everywhere were spotted clutching it under their anorexic arms. I finally jumped on the bandwagon after a vegan podcast I listen to referred to it.

They bash you over the head with the fact that you need to eat a vegan diet to be healthy, but bring up a lot of convincing backstory to support it. The US uses 1 billion pounds of pesticide a year on our food. Of all the toxic chemicals found in food, 95-99% come from meat, fish, dairy and eggs. (source: Diet for a Poisoned Planet)
Fairly quick read, but entirely skippable.
