So so. Good for reading on a short flight. Discard afterwards or give to someone else. Not worth keeping in home library.

Very informative and entertaining. Great book for anyone in the cattle business or who loves beef.

I have never really given any particular thought to where beef cattle originated or how they became domesticated. I suppose, because I enjoy eating beef tremendously, that I never really wanted to know all that much about the animal.

This book is the history of cattle, and to a small extent man, from the earliest days of what are now known as cattle to the present day. Using the Massi tribesman as the background story, the history floats around the world following much the same path that cattle did. IT relates how it is believed that they were domesticated from wild animals and the various methods used to "improve" cattle.

An interesting read, it is a bit on the thin side. There is a distinct lack of detail and, trying to cover 10,000+ years of history in a mere 200 pages is fairly tough. If you want a quick overview of the history of the beef industry and the animal itself, then this is a good read. If you want more depth, look elsewhere.
