Product description

Review

"Stirring...compelling....Foer brings an invigorating moral clarity to the topic."-- "Entertainment Weekly" "Eating Animals isn't just an anti-meat screed, or an impassioned case for vegetarianism. Instead, Foer tells a story that is part memoir and part investigative report....It's a book that takes America's meat-dominated diet to task."--NPR, "All Things Considered" "A work of moral philosophy....The fact that Foer makes me wonder whether I'm being, at best, a hypocrite every time I eat a piece of beef suggests he's completely successful in at least one ambition." -- "San Francisco Chronicle" "Foer's case for ethical vegetarianism is wholly compelling....Eating Animals is a blend of solid-and discomforting-reportage with fierce advocacy that will make committed carnivores squeal."--Kirkus Reviews "Extraordinarily thoughtful and intelligent." -- "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" "For a hot young writer to train his sights on a subject as unpalatable as meat production and consumption takes raw nerve. What makes "Eating Animals" so unusual is vegetarian Foer's empathy for human meat eaters, his willingness to let both factory farmers and food reform activists speak for themselves, and his talent for using humor to sweeten a sour argument."-- O, "The Oprah Magazine" ""Eating Animals" stands as a pop-cultural landmark, destined to be the starting point for a lot of overdue conversations." -- "Philadelphia Daily News"
