Interesting and thorough examination of the ethical issues encountered in what we choose to eat. From factor farms to organic food to local food and even seafood, Singer and Mason trace the ethical implications of food production and consumption in an easy-to-read and very practical manner. I would have liked to see a bit more ethical and philosophical reasoning, but appreciated the practicality of the writing. I'm going to use this for an environmental ethics for undergrads course and I think it will spark a lot of discussion (I hope). I'd recommend this to anyone trying to grapple with this topic in their own lives as they tease out the ethical dimensions of many different diets from the "standard American diet" to full-on vegan (and even freegan).
