Published by Simon & Schuster's Gallery Books, this book covers many aspects of the clean meat industry, including its history and potential future. Rather than an academic work, it's in both the popular science and business genres, profiling the entrepreneurs and investors who are racing to produce the world's first animal products grown without animals.
First released in January 2018, the book was named a Washington Post bestseller a week later, and was also the first-ever book to be bound in lab-grown leather. That inaugural copy had a real leather cover made by Geltor, grown entirely through microbial fermentation rather. It was auctioned off online as a fundraiser for the Good Food Institute.

- Clean meatClean meat is a term coined by The Good Food Institute representing meat products made using cellular agriculture and tissue engineering techniques. Other terms for clean meat include: cultured meat, in-vitro meat, and synthetic meat.
- Plant-based meatPlant-based meat products are made to mimic properties found within natural meats and are considered to be meat substitutes. They are made using plant and other non-animal products to look, taste, and feel like meat products. Examples include: seitan, falafel, tempeh, Tofurky, Beyond Meat burgers, and Mock duck.
