“Against the Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization” by Richard Manning

This book is recommended by J. Stanton, who wrote The Gnoll Credo. After “going paleo,” the next logical step that many people take is to develop a dislike of agriculture for how it shaped the less-than-ideal society of today. With this book, author Richard Manning cites historical and anthropological evidence that support said dislike. While certain parts contain a lot of information that may be difficult to process all at once, this book fascinates and provokes thought.
