Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat : Why It's So Hard to Think Straight About Animals
-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."

Drawing on more than two decades of research into the emerging field of anthrozoology, the science of human-animal relations, Hal Herzog offers an illuminating exploration of the fierce moral conundrums we face every day regarding the creatures with whom we share our world. Alternately poignant, challenging, and laugh-out-loud funny--blending anthropology, behavioral economics, evolutionary psychology, and philosophy--this enlightening and provocative book will forever change the way we look at our relationships with other creatures and, ultimately, how we see ourselves.
