"Nine Steps to Eden" demands an end to the livestock industry. No more meat. No more dairy. This is not only easy to imagine, it is easy to achieve. We just need to make different choices about the foods that we eat. This is a book that asks us, through nine simple thoughts, to reject "the meat delusion" - the lie that says that it is okay for us to kill trillions of animals every year with extreme violence, and in our desire for animal flesh plunder the world's seas and oceans, rainforests and savannahs, and ruin our health and bodies as we eat the bodies of those we have killed. This book is about our attitude towards those animals on our farms and slaughterhouses. As such, it is about violence and cruelty and brutality and killing. It is about why none of that needs to happen anymore.
