CJ first told me about this book and it sounded really interesting so luckily for my birthday she bought me the book. I finished reading it and all I can say is "WOW" It definitely opened my eyes to many things. It's full of facts about the cruelty of animals in slaughterhouses, negative affects of different foods that I had no clue. It pushes the vegan factor but I was born in cow country so I'll always eat beef but may cut back on other things that I eat. It is a must read just for the all the facts that it holds...truly mindblowing.
