'I simply wanted to know - for myself and my family - what meat is. 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.
A spirited, emotional and well-researched investigation into what our taste for flesh really means (Observer ) Deserves a place at the table with our greatest philosophers (Los Angeles Times ) Shocking, incandescent, brilliant (The Times ) Everyone who eats flesh should read this book (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall ) Extremely smart and incredibly curious (Vanity Fair ) 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 )
