Lockwood explores the dimensions of embodiment from his own body to those of the animals he bears witness to, from bodies of knowledge and those who place themselves in the way of the machinery of death, through to our physical efforts to make sense of a world where so much is desensitized, disembodied, and fragmented. Part of Lantern's {bio}graphies series.

Mostly only useful for preaching to the choir and overly repetitive in personal anecdote and sometimes unoriginal in the portion of lockwood's writing vs his references. Nevertheless poses interesting questions and occasionally engrossing scientific tidbits.

Deeply moving, a must read, personal and thoroughly researched and massively informed. Emotive and sobering. Everyone should read this book.

Time to stop eating meat. Clearly has an agenda, but it's written in a sympathetic way, which I appreciate. Good book, definitely worth a read.
