It's summertime, and the living is easy—unless you're an animal who's killed for the grill. No one wants to be butchered, basted, and barbequed. For the love of hogs, let's kick this barbeque season off right by helping men kick their meat habit! And how better to do that than with John Joseph's book Meat Is for Pussies: A How-To Guide for Dudes Who Want to Get Fit, Kick Ass, and Take Names.
If the title doesn't grab your attention, then the subject matter will. More of a boot-camp type of book than a beach read, Joseph makes men face the horrors of factory farming before outlining a plan to guide guys toward a happier, healthier, and more humane lifestyle. Can you say cruelty-free cook-out?
C'mon, you know you want to win this must-read for men. So guys, tell us why you need this book. Ladies, tell us how your brother, father, boyfriend, next-door neighbor, or any guy in your life can benefit from it. The three people who leave comments that most make us want to whip a guy into shape will win a copy of this aptly titled how-to guide.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
