This book should be right up my street -- an argument for veganism in terms of the environmental impact, while also touching on the health and ethical implications. Having read it, though, I have literally no idea how this book gets the glowing reviews it gets elsewhere (e.g., 4.6/5 on Amazon). At best it's a 400 page meandering, disorganized, repetitive slog that desperately needs to be edited down to around 150 pages. The author also comes across to me as hopelessly sanctimonious -- just the worst advertisement for veganism going. And that's without even getting into what I would take to be ableist comments. Ugh.
