Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat is a page turner that I dare say puts Herzog in the same category as Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Lewis. Read this book. You’ll learn some, you’ll laugh some, you’ll love some.”

As the Crowe Flies (And Reads!) Review

“In Some We love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat, psychologist Hal Herzog opens up the new field of anthrozoology, the study of how humans interact with other animals. Showing wide sympathy with all the actors in this drama, he draws attention to the inconsistency of our views.”
Nature  – September 2010 (Review)

“…wonderful…an engagingly written book that only seems to be about animals. Herzog’s deepest questions are about men, women and children…”

In an utterly appealing narrative, he reveals the quirky (and for the reader, entertaining) ways we humans try to make sense of these absurdities.”
