    Read This. It will change your life and help save many others!

    The Face on Your Plate is a life changing read. Be warned, you will not be the same ever again. What man does to animals (for his own "enjoyment") is beyond comprehension...once you understand how humans participate in this world wide carnage. If you have any doubts as to what you must do after reading this book, look for a screening or buy the DVD called "Earthlings". If you can sit through a viewing of this documentary and not become a totally different person, then there is little hope your mind is open to a graceful way of living, so completely illustrated by these two items. Read the book. Watch the DVD. You will be Very Glad You Did! And so will all the animals you will no longer harm. Ahimsa. Namaste.

    Horrible

    Apparently, everyone thinks that humans are horrible to eat meat. Other animals eat meat so why cant we? And if every human being stopped eating meat, we wouldnt survive. Kids need the protein in meat. I know a kid who doesn't eat meat. He stopped growing and developing. I take back the star.

    Wake Up Call!

    Face on Your Plate is well-researched and eye-opening. The author does a clever job of blending hard-to-swallow facts and his personal beliefs without becoming condescending. This book inspired my husband and I (barbecue loving Southerners!) to go vegetarian for a week--which has now turned in to 9 weeks. An easy read and a great conversation starter.

    Eye Opening!

    I really loved this book. Not only was it a book about a man's journey to find out where food comes from and how it end's up on your plate but it was also a personal journey for him, solidifying his choice to be vegan. Even though I'm vegetarian thanks in large part to John Robbin's book "Diet For A New America" and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's podcast "Vegetarian Food For Thought" I still learned a great deal from this book and enjoyed it immensely.

    Very good

    If everyone cared about how that steak ended up on their plates, we'd all be vegetarians. The money spent on feeding food animals could be better spent on feeding a small nation of starving people. Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson has once again provided insight and thought-provoking details about what we fill our stomachs with and how it affects our planet.
