This book angered me, because the concept had some promise, and the author totally butchered (pun intended) what could have been a really interesting read. It's riddled with jokes that aren't funny, disjointed writing, and a general "dude" vibe that was kind of a turn-off to a woman who likes - and is curious to learn more about - meat.

I'd really like to rewrite this book to make it more accessible to people who a) don't appreciate lame jokes, b) don't want to take the word of the National Beef Cattleman's Association about how good eating cow is for you, and c) genuinely want to learn more about responsibly consuming and cooking meat, not reading a weird jumble of stories about meat-eating.
