Vile book Oct. 12 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Absolutely disgusting. If you are going to write a book about meat then do include all of the facts. How they are raised (normally in crates unable to move), what happens to the babies that are weak (smashed into the floor) and then how they are killed This needs to be graphic, no animal wants to die for the sake of your taste buds.

Now even if I didn't care about animals everyone knows how bad bacon is for your health anyway so why on earth you are promoting it is beyond me.

Dull, boring, waste of time Oct. 13 2014

Format: Paperback
The book is boring, badly written, dull, meaningless- i would totally recommend that you dont bother with this, its a complete waste of time and money.

A fun read for bacon-lovers Dec 20 2009
By Gen of North Coast Gardening - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Bacon fans will definitely want to read all the odd stories, history, and modern uses of bacon in this fun, breezy read. I read it over the course of a few months, just picking it up here and there with a strip of bacon and a hefty glass of ice water, and it was fun to get some new ideas for how to eat bacon, and some definite ideas that I do NOT want to try (Paula Deen's bacon/ beef/ egg sandwich encased between two glazed donuts - EW!). All in all, a fun read for the bacon fans among us...

Enjoy your heart disease Oct. 26 2014

Format: Paperback
You forgot to tour the factory farms where these pigs are tortured and boiled alive. Enjoy your heart disease. No love in this book whatsoever.
