really liked it

I've been a vegetarian for several years (trying to go vegan now). Just researched and wrote a paper on our current industrial animal food farming system. I knew it was bad -- now I know it's horrible. Small wonder then that this book appealed to me. Checked it out today; the author looks at the spiritual benefits of abstaining from meat-eating, along with health, ecological, and economic benefits, and, of course, curtailing widespread animal abuse throughout the meat industry. I'm not a spiritual person, but could always read more about extending my compassion, as it's a win-win situation in my humble opinion. I feel it behooves us all to know where our food comes from. "Old McDonald had a Farm" is a myth, folks.

It's a quick read as it's small and portable; in other words, I'm buying a copy. Succinctly and simply states the perils of continually supporting this farming method, for all the above reasons.
