If only this were a bestseller..., December 15, 2001
Reviewer: Dianne C. Laing from Miami, Florida United States
There'd be alot less hell for animals out there. Until now, I'd read other horror stories about the treatment of livestock from the workers, and was disgusted thinking there are actually people out there with attitudes like that, but this book opened my eyes to how the workers are being mistreated and, unfortunately, take out their frustration on the farm animals. Another testament to how people use and abuse animals and there's hardly anyone noticing, Gail Eisnitz's "Slaughterhouse" is disturbing, but also educating and stimulating to make a move and take action to change laws and regulations in the U.S. meat industry. This book is an absolute MUST READ to anyone who eats meat or cares about animals or their own well-being from the meat they consume. A striking look into human greed, concience and ignorance towards anything other than us, I recommend "Slaughterhouse" to all.
