Book Review (4/5) – Should We Eat Meat: Evolution and Consequences of Modern Carnivory (Vaclav Smil)

Published (updated: ) in Book Reviews. Tags: .

Originally published on Goodreads.

Smil is not an author for casual readers. I particularly like his pragmatic and evidence based approach to topics and he always takes a very methodical approach to the subject he’s investigating. This is a true scientific analysis of the real numbers, what they mean and how they compare, where existing literature is wrong and what the means for a conclusion. I can tell why Bill Gates loves reading everything Smil puts out!
