    I read this book when I was 17 and it changed my life. Not so much because of the nutritional information it contained, or the recipes (which weren't that good) but because it clarified for me the real impact of our meat-based diet on the environment, resource management, and consequently human rights. This book is possibly more relevant now than ever and the follow-up "Hope's Edge: The Next Diet for a Small Planet" is a must-read too.
