Product Details


“A thorough, thoughtful dive into the revolution coming for our plates. I learned so much.”—Bianca Bosker, author of Cork Dork

“A wild ride to the far horizon of our food system. Chase Purdy breaks important new ground in this gripping account about the innovators, activists, and big-money investors who are reinventing meat as we know it. Not only are they changing the world—they’re doing it a lot faster than you think.” –Christopher Leonard, author of Kochland

 “This is a fast-paced, early peek into what will soon be the topic at dinner for the next two decades: lab-grown meat. What do we call it, is it good, should I eat it? Read this and get ahead of the curve.” —Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick at Wired and author of The Inevitable

 “Billion Dollar Burger is a journalistic feat, offering us the first real, behind-the-scenes look at the wild world of vegans, scientists and venture capitalists racing to upend our plates. A thoughtful, entertaining, well-researched, and essential book.”—Helena Bottemiller Evich, James Beard Award-winning food and agriculture reporter at Politico 

“Can humanity move beyond the slaughterhouse? Billion Dollar Burger is a compulsive and well-researched account of the scientists, entrepreneurs, and activists trying to save the world through high-tech meat.”—Douglas Rushkoff, author of Team Human

“A deeply reported account of the science, politics, and personalities behind cell-cultured meat that every eater needs to read. Chase Purdy brings the stuff of science fiction to life in this fascinating book.” John Mackey, Founder and CEO Whole Foods Market

“Someday, humans will look back today’s industrial meat production with horror. Chase Purdy brilliantly chronicles the emergence of a new industry poised to set us on the path to a more humane future, with dramatic implications for agriculture, the environment and the way we think about food.”– Martin Ford, author of Rise of the Robots and Architects of Intelligence
