4.0 out of 5 stars Provides insight on the origins of our food and the ethics of eating them, July 3, 2006
By 
This review is from: The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter (Hardcover)
'The Way We Eat' was very eye-opening as it provided lots of facts and insight on modern agriculture and the origins of various American meals. Singer & Mason's account of various forms of meat production is downright horrifying, and is probably intended as such.

I read this book immediately after finishing Michael Pollan's 'The Omnivore's Dilemma'. These 2 recently released books on food politics are perfect companions. Overall, Pollan's work was much more entertaining and seemed to go by much quicker. Although, I think Singer & Mason did more extensive research. Where Pollan didn't seem to pass judgement on various diets, I saw that Singer & Mason were very biased toward the vegan diet. I guess that's to be expected, since Singer is an ethicist and was trying to present the most ethical meal.

Aside from that bit of preachiness, this was an excellent book. The facts presented here need a wider audience.
