Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tucker | 2/12/2014

    " I don't always agree with Peter Singer, but he always makes me think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 2/5/2014

    " Obviously bias and needs to be read with close caution and consideration to his views... But very insightful and revealing in the world of foods. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/27/2014

    " A great and thought-provoking look at current food issues from the perspective of three families -- one that lives in Arkansas and shops at Wal-Mart, one that lives in the Nertheast and shops at Trader Joe's and farmer's markets, and one that lived in Kansas and keep a vegan household. Unlike other recent books on food issues, this one does not shy away from the moral issues that surround the decision to eat factory-farmed meat. No doubt because Peter Singer is a co-author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 1/25/2014

    " I read this book for a class I was taking. It made me aware of all the different things we need to consider when taking that first bite. Do I change my ways and try to eat more ethically or put blinders on and continue on the path I have been on? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/8/2014

    " If you're curious about why I became vegan... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yuki | 1/7/2014

    " It starts out strong but it didn't keep my interest for long although it is well written and educational. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess P | 1/2/2014

    " Very thorough, nice focus on ethics from THE animal rights advocate, Peter Singer!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley | 12/30/2013

    " This is a must read book!! I only gave it 4 stars because I don't subscribe to all of the authors theories - but I do agree with many and it has changed the way I eat, shop and think already. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 9/29/2013

    " this is the book that really convinced me to become vegetarian "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine B. | 8/22/2013

    " You should avoid this book if you want to be able to keep eating meat from the grocery store (even the supposedly nice 'organic' kind). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Burton | 12/27/2012

    " Wonderfully written, and as profoundly disturbing as you would expect. Most of the book is about the US market, but there's excellent references to Australia as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Evans | 9/9/2012

    " Wonderful. The only bad thing was that when I finished it I felt even more guilty than usual that I'm not vegan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 5/14/2012

    " This opened my eyes about how our food is produced and changed the way I think about food, shop and prepare food for my family. We now belong to a CSA, have a garden and try to support local, organic food production. We eat less meat and rarely, if ever, purchase it from factory farmed sources. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 4/29/2012

    " Everyone should read this. Some good lessons, presented in a non-sanctimonious way. Just do what you can. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Spindler | 3/29/2012

    " I read this after reading Omnivore's Dilemma and Barbara Kingsolver's Animal Vegetable Miracle. I felt like I got more in-depth information about where food comes from in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 emmy hall | 2/26/2012

    " a book on food written by an ethicist. absolutely worth reading. singer goes into detail on the background of food, (i learned SO MUCH about fish) and offers some interesting perspectives on why local isn't always better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 1/26/2012

    " What finally got me to become vegetarian...and eventually vegan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 8/15/2011

    " It will change the way you eat. The book should come with a warning label. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 5/22/2011

    " Cannot say enough about this book. It not only examines where our food comes from, but challenges why we make the choices we do about food. Sanger is also fair, however, in realizing different people have different choices available to them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 4/3/2011

    " great follow-up to Omnivores Dilemma "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 2/20/2011

    " I eat meat - but I still really enjoyed reading this book. It opens your eyes in the same way that movies like Food Inc do - everyone should be concerned with where their food comes from and what environmental implications it has. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri | 2/15/2011

    " I found this book to be very engaging! I enjoyed it much more than Omnivores Dilemma. I am now returning to vegetarianism! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 10/16/2010

    " Very interesting but I'm still not convinced that vegan is the best way to go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 9/6/2010

    " This book is amazing. I learned so so much from it and it really has changed my life. HIGHLY recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 9/4/2010

    " I read this book for a class I was taking. It made me aware of all the different things we need to consider when taking that first bite. Do I change my ways and try to eat more ethically or put blinders on and continue on the path I have been on?

    " Very thorough, nice focus on ethics from THE animal rights advocate, Peter Singer!!!! "
