No Happy Cows collects these recent observations together for the first time in book form. Robbins shares his dispatches from the front lines of the food revolution: From his undercover investigations of feed lots and slaughterhouses, to the rise of food contamination, the slave trade behind chocolate and coffee, the sham of "Vitamin Water," and the effects of hormones on animals and animal products.Among the topics covered are:
Does Soy Cause Alzheimer's Disease
Infants Growing Breasts?: The Trouble with Hormones in our Milk

Chocolate and 21st-century Slavery

Robbin's trenchant and provocative observations into the relationships between animals and the humans who raise them remind us of the importance of working for a more compassionate and environmentally responsible world.

This is a fairly short paperback, so is a relatively quick read.

I've been vegan for well over 15 years and vegetarian for 20 or more. It was a book by John Robbins that convinced me to move in that direction (I'd already stopped eating red meat). It's one of the best decisions of my life. Robbins's writing has gotten even better over the years, and this is an important, engaging and at times moving, book. (Since the essays are based on blogs from The Huffington Post, I think I'll have to start reading those.) Despite some preachiness near the end, there's lots of information (much of it chilling) in this small collection and more than a little wisdom.
