From Publishers Weekly
Mel Foster delivers a lively performance of Herzog's exploration of human-animal relationships. Based on his biomedical research and the study of anthrozoology, Herzog investigates everything from animal rights activists to factory farming in an effort to better understand the way we relate to animals and to determine what these relationships reveal about the human experience. Foster's narration is straightforward and well paced; he both elucidates complex scientific concepts and entertains with renderings of real-life--and often comedic--animal anecdotes. Perhaps more importantly, Foster's narration is objective; he manages to bring fairness and balance to the controversial subject of animal rights. Never preachy, never divisive, Foster produces an audiobook that will appeal to all listeners, be they committed vegans or enthusiastic big game hunters. A Harper hardcover (Reviews, July 26). (Sept.)

“Wonderful. . . . An engagingly written book that only seems to be about animals. Herzog’s deepest questions are about men, women and children.” (Karen Sandstrom, Cleveland Plain Dealer)
“A fun read. . . . What buoys this book is Herzog’s voice. He’s an assured, knowledgeable and friendly guide.” (Associated Press)
“A fascinating, thoughtful, and thoroughly enjoyable exploration of a major dimension of human experience.” (Steven Pinker, Harvard College Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of How the Mind Works and The Stuff of Thought)
“Everybody who is interested in the ethics of our relationship between humans and animals should read this book.” (Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human)
“An instant classic….Written so accessibly and personally, while simultaneously satisfying the scholar in all of us.” (Arnold Arluke, Anthrozoös)
“Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat is both educational and enjoyable, a page-turner that I dare say puts Herzog in the same class as Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Lewis. Read this book. You’ll learn some, you’ll laugh some, you’ll love some.” (BookPage)
“Hal Herzog deftly blends anecdote with scientific research to show how almost any moral or ethical position regarding our relationship with animals can lead to absurd consequences. In an utterly appealing narrative, he reveals the quirky…ways we humans try to make sense of these absurdities.” (Irene M. Pepperberg, author of Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Uncovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process)
“One of a kind. I don’t know when I’ve read anything more comprehensive about our highly involved, highly contradictory relationships with animals, relationships which we mindlessly, placidly continue no matter how irrational they may be….This page-turning book is quite something—you won’t forget it any time soon.” (Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Deer: Lessons from the Natural World)
“Hal Herzog does for our relationships with animals what Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma did for our relationships with food….The book is a joy to read, and no matter what your beliefs are now, it will change how you think.” (Sam Gosling, Professor of Psychology, University of Texas, Austin, author of Snoop: What Your Stuff Says About You)
“This is a wonderful book—wildly readable, funny, scientifically sound, and with surprising moments of deep, challenging thoughts. I loved it.” (Robert M. Sapolsky, Neuroscientist, Stanford University, and author of Monkeyluv and A Primate's Memoir)
