Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer

I found this both an inspiring and often challenging exploration of our relationship with animals, specifically with those we choose to eat. It examines the ethics and real dangers of conventional animal agriculture and factory farming and questions the author's own justifications for eating some meat products and not others. While it's not preachy, it does challenge its readers to think critically about their food choices as eating animals by including research, interviews, and personal insight that present a compelling, honest, and, for me, very meaningful work of literature.
