"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" Hal Herzog, a maverick scientist and leader in the field of anthrozoology offers a controversial, thought-provoking, and unprecedented exploration of the psychology behind the inconsistent and often paradoxical ways we think, feel, and behave towards animals. A cross between Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma "and Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods, Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat, "in the words of Irene M. Pepperberg, bestselling author of "Alex & Me," " ""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."
