    Carnism is the belief system, or ideology, that allows us to selectively choose which animals become our meat, and it is sustained by complex psychological and social mechanisms. Like other "isms", carnism is most harmful when it is unrecognized and unacknowledged. Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows names and explains this phenomenon and offers it up for examination. Unlike the many books that explain why we shouldn't eat meat, Joy's book explains why we do eat meat.

    When the heart is touched, it wants to sing songs of recognized experience. Call it poetry, for then image, cadence, and word melt together as one. This audiobook of poems is about such experiences. That depth of feeling encompasses both desolation and consolation and so brings the listener close to the pulse of life, to joy, the thinnest layer.
