Funny is not enough to describe this book.
Personally I am intrigued how nice and colorful the steak look at the supermarket, but taste-wise, not so good, and worst yet, it varied. Grass fed for superior taste and nutrition ? I tried a few times, but makes no difference to my tongue. This book answered for me these kinds of questions. And also provides many scientific facts on nutritional aspects like fat, omega fatty acids....
In this health conscious age, we need more books like this one about real eating, or eating real. Beef is food.
I found this book to be a very compelling read I also bought a copy for my brother-in-law who was equally enthralled by this book.
I love how he included the technical aspects of the science of beef and the people who study beef either at a university or in the industry. I have many parts of the book highlighted and was surprised how much of the information came up in dinner conversation.
Makes me hungry for a steak thinking about it...
I was interested in reading this book to get some anecdotal evidence as to how beef may finish under different circumstances. While this book is very informative, it does lack some of the depth I was really hoping for. I believe the author did this to keep the reading light and more story like. It does make it easier to read and digest the material. This is definately not a text book, and so it should not be considered as such. It is filled with useful information. I beleive by reading between the lines a little it will help me to narrow down the main types of grazing I want to try, to finish my animals. I think by reading this book prior to finishing any. I will be able to have good finishing skills in 2 or 3 seasons. It may have taken up to 10 other wise. Just the reduction in experamentation by eliminating a few practices makes this book worth the read.
I will probably loan this book to friends, and reread it in time. If you love steak, or cooking this book is 2 thumbs up.
