    1. A few okay chapters (the chapter on racism and Michael Vick was good; the one on disability was OK; the one on moral conflicts was an interesting personal essay) and the introduction was good. The rest was trash theory tbh. I don't say this lightly.


    2. It's difficult to give this book anything less than 5 stars because it contains the work of people I admire and consider mentors and friends. That said, I can't decide between 3 or 4 stars.It's an academic text. If you aren't into reading academic essays, move along. My favorite pieces in it were Taylor's "Vulnerability and Dependency and the Ethics of Care," Kim's "The Wonderful, Horrible Life of Michael Vick," and jones' "Eros and the Mechanisms of Eco-Defense." Those three essays make the boo [...]


    3. All in all, I felt that there were three standout chapters in this book: Michael Vick and racism, the intersection of disability and veganism and a personal reflection on moral challenges to veganism (e.g. genuine grey areas, in which one might be forced to participate in speciesist systems). The rest were either bland or so couched in abstract, theoretical language as to lose any pretence at genuine meaning. Despite being vegan myself, I was particularly confused by the emphasis on farmed, non- [...]


    4. This book was right on the edge of being interesting and useful for my research, but it didn't quite make it. Many of the chapters focused too much on philosophical theory (Plato and Nietzsche were quoted or referenced on numerous occasions) and not enough on practical arguments. I did enjoy the chapter on disability, but it seemed to be a stand-alone piece of good work.
