The Mindful Carnivore lifts off today.
In reality, it has been landing on shelves for a couple weeks already. But today it’s official. The book is out, in hardcover and all flavors of eBook.
In the Acknowledgments section of the book, I thank many people, including you:
. . . all the readers of my blog, for commenting on my posts and engaging each other in spirited and civil debate, for opening my eyes to new perspectives and challenging me to reconsider my own.
I mean that. This book would not have happened without you. Or, if it happened, it would have been a lesser creation. I am in your debt.
And—because I believe in this book and the questions it raises—I’m willing to add to that debt by asking two favors.
- First, if you’re inclined to buy the book, please consider doing it in the next few days. I’m told that moving the sales needle in the first week really matters. (If you can make it to one of my upcoming book events here in New England, please consider buying a copy there, to support the independent bookstores hosting me.)
- Second, please help spread the word. Over coffee or over a meal, at a meeting or online, please mention the book to a few friends—or a few hundred. Word-of-mouth is powerful.
I’ll keep you posted on the conversations that get sparked as the book spreads its wings. I look forward to bringing those conversations right back here.
