If anyone should be writing a book about how to defeat death, it would have to be this gentleman, who lived to the grand old age of 100. Alright, he never defeated death, but he gave it a really good shot. Anyway, this book covers lots of subjects, including: The ethics of flesh eating; Death too fashionable; The foods of the world’s great men; The prophet-poet, Hesiod; The poet Ovid’s vegetarianism; Atoms and the finer forces; The eloquent Chrysostum in Athens; How to strengthen and spiritualize the body; The medical practice of Mandeville, the Holland doctor; The Catholic teacher of Voltaire; F'lesh eating a remnant of savagery; Man not naturally carnivorous; and many more.
