THE WAY WE EAT: WHY OUR FOOD CHOICES MATTER by Peter Singer and Jim Mason -- 20% OFF THE RETAIL PRICE OF $25.95!

A thought-provoking look at how what we eat profoundly affects all living things, and how we can make more ethical food choices.

Five Principles for Making Conscientious Food Choices
1. Transparency: We have the right to know how our food is produced.
2. Fairness: Producing food should not impose costs on others.
3. Humanity: Inflicting unnecessary suffering on animals is wrong.
4. Social Responsibility: Workers are entitled to decent wages and working conditions.
5. Needs: Preserving life and health justifies more than other desires.

Peter Singer, the groundbreaking ethicist, now sets his critical sights on the food we buy and eat: where it comes from, how itís produced, and whether it was raised humanely. Teaming up once again with attorney Jim Mason, his coauthor on the acclaimed Animal Factories, Singer explores the impact our food choices have on humans, animals, and the environment.

In The Way We Eat, Singer and Mason examine the eating habits of three American families with very different diets. They track down the sources of each familyís food to probe the ethical issues involved in its production and marketing. What kinds of meat are most humane to eat? Is "organic" always better? Wild fish or farmed? Recognizing that not everyone will become vegetarian, Singer and Mason offer ways to make the best food choices. (hardcover, 328 pages.)
