""Eating Animals" stands as a pop-cultural landmark, destined to be the starting point for a lot of overdue conversations." -- "Philadelphia Daily News"
From the Inside Flap
Eating Animals is a uniquely passionate, powerful and provocative exploration of what we eat and why. It is both a personal quest which goes to the very heart of what it means to be human and a riveting exposé of the horrors and dangers of factory farming. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product description

Seller was great too; product was cheap, in good condition and arrived earlier than expected.
Despite the book's brilliance there are huge ommisions which puzzle me and which I may relate in part to his own remaining eating choices. The first is his avoidance of any discussion of milk, butter and cheese. There is no discussion of the way in which the dairy industry is the bride of the meat industry. Another weak area of the book is fish. Fish are squeezed into two or three pages. I suggest reading THE END OF THE LINE by Charles Clover, or see the film for more background on this. Finally, because of his emphasis on suffering, there is no mention of the parallels between the techniques and consolidations of the meat industry and those of seed companies like Monsanto. I suggest watching THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO for more on this.
However, these are small quibbles, and for what it's worth I, for one, have already changed my eating habits considerably as a result of reading this book. Any stack of printed pages which can do that is a testament to the power of the pen and if it turns out that we one day look back to 20th century eating habits and animal cruelty practices of our species with the same disgust that we now feel towards the practices of Nazi Germany then this book will have been one of the voices of common sense to help bring about an end to the current animal holocaust.
