A bit of a polemic, but nevertheless quite good and thought provoking. I read this a long time ago; I think in 1992, and it had big effect on me. I had been a vegetarian already for 4 years, but this book helped me better articulate some of the reasons behind my decision.

made me think about and consider many things i hadn't before--very interesting though i'm not sure all her views are entirely valid.
