So far definitely worth reading if only to re
Ind ourselves that our assumptions about food and eating are often incorrect.
Ok, now I have finished it. It's interesting and even-handed and takes on a number of the flash point having to do with animal rights. I agree completely with his conclusion that it is complicated and that we are imperfect human beings who often behave hypocritically and with cognitive dissonance. He raises many important questions and does not pretend to answer any of them. His interviews with people holding many shades of belief are interesting. As a psychologist, Herzog is very interested in why people do what they do in relation to animals. The writing was a little too casual for me but he did get his points across well. I was hoping that he would include a section about artists and animal rights but maybe that was too hot a topic!!
