Animal Factory: The Looming Threat of Industrial Pig, Dairy, and Poultry Farms to Humans and the Environment

David Kirby, read by William Hughes, Blackstone Audio, unabridged, 17 CDs, 21 hrs., $39.95 ISBN 978-1-4417-3968-1
Following crusaders against large-scale factory farms, investigative journalist Kirby delves deep to uncover the abysmal conditions of America’s food and produce industry; “Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations,” or CAFOs, are revealed to be the root cause of current health crises such as swine flu and massive recalls on grocery products. Kirby presents the human side of big-business blunders and coverups. William Hughes keeps the prose engaging by shifting his tone to underplayed yet believable characterizations. He presents the bulk of the material in a straightforward, newsworthy tone capable of presenting the facts without editorializing. An eye-opening account of an escalating problem. A St. Martin’s hardcover. (Mar.)
