Where does it come from? How is it produced? What are the economic, social and environmental effects? Are there animals that it is straightforwardly right to eat? Are there situations in which not eating animals is wrong? If this began as a personal quest, it didn't stay that way for long..." (Jonathan). Safran Foer's "Eating Animals" is the most original book on the subject of food written this century. It will change the way you think, and change the way you eat. For good. "Moving, disturbing, should be compulsory reading. A genuine masterwork. Read this book. It will change you". ("Time Out"). "Shocking, incandescent, brilliant". ("The Times"). "Everyone who eats flesh should read this book". (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall). "Gripping, horrible, wonderful, breathtaking, original. A brilliant synthesis of argument, science and storytelling. One of the finest books ever written on the subject of eating animals". ("The Times Literary Supplement"). "Horrifying, eloquent, timely". ("Spectator"). "If you eat meat and fish, you should read this book. Even if you don't, you should. It might bring the beginning of a change of heart about all living things". (Joanna Lumley Jonathan). Safran Foer was born in 1977. He is the author of "Everything is Illuminated", which won the National Jewish Book Award and the Guardian First Book award; "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close", which is now a major film starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock; and "Eating Animals". He is also the editor of "A Convergence of Birds" and of a new edition of the "Haggadah".Read Less

Well worth reading!
Especially if you also read the NYT article about the meat packing industry, this book may cure you permanently of eating animals. The imagery of how humans render other creatures into edible protein packages isn't pretty, isn't "humane" and it isn't healthy--for humans!
Bacon and marbled steaks? My father and all of my uncles suffered
terribly, and died, from heart attacks. The pigs and cows revenge!!
A far better and conscionable way to go: "Eat vegetables. And less!"
