Publisher's Summary

The moral imperative behind vegetarianism is precisely this: to imagine the pain of an animal and then to ask yourself one straightforward question: Do I need to kill it in order to live? And, if you do not need to eat animals to live a good life, then ask yourself the following, and perhaps more pertinent, questions: Is slaughtering a cow, beheading a chicken, or hooking a fish necessary? Is my palate the driving force behind my ethical values?

Good Intentions Went Preachy

I have been on a plant-based diet for quite some time so I do not need to be sold on the lifestyle. I was, however, interested to learn if David Christopher Lane has to say. I was sure he would not present anything new but at the end of the book, he gave this analogy (I am both paraphrasing and adlibbing): “No one would French kiss a cow but few people have qualms about sucking on cooked animal juices and or foods fried in animal rendering.” I must admit he got me with that one—and yes, for me, his logic here makes sense.

I could never do Lane’s voice regarding the subject of veganism any justice. He speaks about his experiences and perspective with fiery point-counterpoint passion that I try to avoid both as speaker and listener (honestly, I hope I am not guilty of this). Also the book is short, making it is super easy for a reviewer to spill too many beans at the expense of potential book sales for the author. For these reasons I will only say that I found some bits of the book to be interesting, and others a big turn off because he fell into "preach" mode. Still, 30 minutes (less if you increase the speed like I did) might not be too long to listen to someone else’s opinion especially if you are curious about or remotely interested in veganism.

Paul Stefano did a great job reading and holding up the author's perspective in a way that was both articulate and believable.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you Audiobook Boom.

I was hoping for knowledge on the subject...

I a not sure how to review this..
I have reading up on vegetarianism and vegan living and the benefits the last few weeks, I figured this would be an exultant to further my research.
This book isn't about why we shouldn't " eat faces" or why the author does eat faces. its more of a term paper or thesis. it really didn't go into to much detail on anything. So i didn't learn much. I was kind of disappointed.
I will added that the narrator dig a great job though.

I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
