9780141031934: Eating Animals

Eating Animals is Jonathan Safran Foer's eye-opening account of where meat comes from

'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.

'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
