Catherine Friend tackles the carnivore's dilemma, exploring the contradictions, nuances, questions, and bewildering choices facing today's more conscious meat-eaters. The Compassionate Carnivore is "perfect for people who would like to eat meat but have moral, ethical, or health concerns about doing so" (Marion Nestle, What to Eat ). Based on her own personal struggle, Friend's original, witty take on the meat and livestock debates shows consumers how they can be healthy and humane carnivores, too.

Compassionate and Carnivore are totally opposite personality and morality traits, so this book would be false in its basic premise.

Reading this book made me think twice about the choices my family makes about the food we eat. It is not preachy, but gives you information about farming so that you can make your own conclusions.
