“Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows” is a good follow-up read to “Omnivore’s Dilemna”, “Fast Food Nation” and their ilk. This book gives a slightly different perspective on the issue of eating meat though…a psychological perspective. It delves into why we as Americans are okay eating cows, chickens, and pigs but not dogs, cats, and horses. It also discusses how most chose to ignore the issues of factory farming.
The book offers up vegetarianism as the way to eat. It didn’t quite make me jump onto the vegetarian band wagon but it was an interesting read.
This was a pretty quick read, clocking in at less than 200 pages of actual text. The remainder of the pages are the bibliography and related notes.
