Against Meat

I don’t do book recommendation often,  but I couldn’t let this one slide by.  Technically Eating Animals doesn’t come out until November 2nd, but it’s already available on Amazon, so no excuse there.  For a sneak peak, there is an extremely powerful excerpt that run in the New York Times Magazine , and which I found particularly powerful not just because of how he speaks of choosing to abstain from Meat, but also in the way he speaks of his Jewish Grandmother and how she survived WWII.

If you don’t have an account on the New York Times website, you do need one to read this, but it’s free…so that’s no excuse…tell me what you think!

  • I bought this book the other night & can’t wait to read it! The first chapter was really interesting, and I read the article in HuffPo that Natalie Portman wrote about it earlier this week. Apparently it made her go from a 20-year vegetarian to a vegan activist! Sounds very compelling & insightful.

    I’m a little over halfway through at this point, and I’m so engrossed…I mean I’ve read and heard a lot about the horrors of factory farming (one of the many reasons I don’t eat creatures) but it feels like I find something newly horrifying on every page…
