For the book's contents, I give it five stars.
But do not buy this on Kindle until the Publisher corrects and formats the book, and takes as much care with it's epublication as it did with the print version. Buy the book.
What is disgusting is that several countries have attempted, and in some cases succeeded, in blocking the kosher method of dispatching animals, claiming that it is cruel; nothing could possibly be more wrong if they tried. In my opinion, it is just another type of antisemitism. Kosher and (for the moment I cannot recall the Arab name that roughly translates into the same as Kosher--fit) the Islamic slaughtering is the kindest method of killing an animal as it is nearly instantaneous death and the animal feels NO PAIN WHATSOEVER as compared to thunking them on the head to stun them, leaving many animals alive when butchers begin to cut them.
IF an animal shows any discomfort whatsoever, it is not fit for use by Judaism or Islam. A knife that is so sharp and has no nicks in it is used to cut the carotid arteries and the killing stroke has to be one continuous slice so the animal simply loses consciousness and dies; the blood is then drained out.
Again, I believe that anyone who is interested in the ethics of eating will find this book fascinating.
