Like many young Americans, Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between enthusiastic carnivore and occasional vegetarian. As he became a husband, and then a father, the moral dimensions of eating became increasingly important to him. Faced with the prospect of being unable to explain why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions involved with creating them.
Traveling to the darkest corners of our dining habits, Foer raises the unspoken question behind every fish we eat, every chicken we fry, and every burger we grill. Part memoir and part investigative report, "Eating Animals" is a book that, in the words of the "Los Angeles Times," places Jonathan Safran Foer "at the table with our greatest philosophers."

    Comments about Eating Animals:

    This is an important resource on the ruthlessness that drives food production and the consequences of not thoughtfully applying ethics in our food choices.
    Every human being on our planet needs to read this book.

    Comment on this review

    "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"""
