There were many aspects described of factory farming that I could have lived without knowing. Much of this book was graphic and disturbing. It takes a tough person not to let emotions get in the way of focusing on making conditions at factory farms better for animals. Temple Grandin is one such person and I admire her being able to research and think things through to provide better lives for chickens, cattle and other creatures we consume. I do admire her work and appreciate that she has made improvements for these creatures.
