i gave this title a lower rating only because the narrative is sensational and it isn't as skillfully written as it could have been. that said, there are not many books written about this subject, so the investigative work that eisnitz has done is immensely valuable. it is a fast-paced, gory read that will likely leave you feeling indignant and insulted by yet another instance of a federal agency witholding information from the public and surreptitiously covering up mistakes. another thing that makes this book unique is that for the first time, actual slaughterhouse workers are interviewed and speak publicly about the policy abuses, inhumane treatment of animals, and unsafe working conditions.
