    I'm reading more and more vegan or animal-free books. When walking through my local library this bright red book cover caught my attention. I wondered if they would discuss Impossible Foods, a food brand that has created meat, that taste very near the real thing. So much like the real ...

    This book was great and so helpful. I've been vegetarian since 2010, and I've gone through periods of feeling frustrated and hopeless about how to make real progress in the field of animal welfare. I'm burned out on reading about the problems with our food system and eating meat, and i...

    This is a quick read with the main focus on the perpetual push toward ending the practice of animal factoring farming. Although the author touches on many important points, I felt this book fell a bit short for me. I have always been an advocate for the protection of animals and have b...

    Fantastic book that made me fantasise about quitting my job and starting a cultured meat business. Reese is always polite in his book, but he does not mince words when it comes time to analyze the activists of the past (and, to lesser extent, present). Too often the focus has been o...

    Reese makes an utterly optimistic case for the future of animal farming in this book. The future of a meatless society is one that he can almost taste. Philosophically speaking, Reese did not add anything new to the conversation. Where this book adds to the animal advocates library is ...

    I received The End of Animal Farming as part of a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for my honest review. As a vegetarian-becoming-vegan, I've long been interested in the rights of animals. And though I have read and watched plenty of books, documentaries, and more about animal welfare...

    I?ve been closely tracking the Clean Meat Revolution, Effective Altruism, and factory farming for years but still learned a ton from this book. Reese is a rigorous thinker and has packed these pages with powerful ideas. This book is a great read for anyone but especially (aspiring) e...

    "People eat animal products in spite of how they are produced, not because of it." "The proposition of animal consciousness, although treated as common sense by many of us today, is an inherently challenging concept. It threatens our human need to feel unique in the world." "When...

    This book goes into my 'favorite' shelf on Goodreads. Jacy Reese writes so clearly it almost hurts. I am jealous of his skill. I don't think I'll be able to write this way for a long time. Much respect in that regard. The arguments that are particularly interesting & - more importa...

    I am not now nor will I ever be a vegetarian . however, this book has merit. obviously if we are to conquer space we need a food supply that is portable, and easy to maintain. non animal alternatives will be necessary. this book did not address or even mention any downside to aband...

    This book was fascinating from both an animal advocacy perspective and a food technology perspective. Rigorous and evidence-based, yet entertaining and easy to read. I particularly appreciated the thoughtful analysis of effective and ineffective advocacy strategies. Paints a compelling...

    An important addition to the growing breadth of effective altruism literature. Reese is well-measured and thoughtful throughout his 200ish-page book. I gained a lot of knowledge and insight despite following the movement sporadically. My praise is independent from being a consume...

    I received a free hardback copy of this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I went into it expecting horrific tales of animal suffering and continual exhortations to switch to a vegan diet (which I do not currently practice). I read Eating Anim...

    First off, I'd like to say that I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway contest! I am really glad that I was one of the lucky winners too, because honestly, although I would've definitely read this book if it was free, I know I wouldn't spend 30$ to read it...especially when I cou...

    I have read books and watched documentaries on eating to the exclusion of animals, documented studies, etc. This book is one person's views. It wasn't for me, so I feel rating it would be a disservice to those interested in this topic. I do think that the current system will implode ...

    This is the book the vegan movement needs. The thrust of Reese's vision for the future is this: it is vegan, but it is not meatless. Yes, we will save cute baby cows from slaughter and still be grilling up burgers on the fourth of July. Reese is a student of the effective altruism ...

    As a YouTuber and promoter of science, and having been a vegan for more than 4 years, I have very much appreciated Jacy's book. He shows that he took the painful job of going through the relevant scientific literature in order to deliver a book to the public which, I think, has been ...

    I can't recommend this book enough for anyone who views themselves as open-minded, or anyone interested in our modern food system, environment and social justice, or new technologies. Throughout the book, the author presents a logical and well-structured case for replacing conventio...

    This is not your average vegan book. Despite the moral urgency of the issue of animal farming, Reese is thoughtful and reflective, not preachy. A fascinating book on the history and science of the animal welfare movement, with clear ideas for advocates and ordinary people to help end a...

    I read this after reading Jonathan Safran Fore?s excellent EATING ANIMALS, which is beautifully written, incredibly moving, and hugely persuasive. Perhaps Reese?s book merely suffers by comparison, but I don?t think it?s just that. I do enjoy the informational aspect of this, b...
