I was more taken with Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemma, but liked the logic of this book a bit better. It was obviously focused on being vegan, but refrained from passing harsh judgement on the meat-eating families featured in the book. I had never contemplated dumpster diving or living a "freegan" lifestyle. Even eating meat that way has no ethical consequences because you are not paying to foster inhumane practices in any way and are, in fact, recycling by consuming "trash." As I am contemplating some ethical way to eat eggs - raising my own "adopted" chickens, this book helped me gain some clarity.
