Occasionally I have a hard time finding non-fiction titles that capture my interest, so a couple of weeks ago, I decided to browse my library's non-fiction audiobook section. I also checked out OverDrive's eBook nonfiction titles. I found some great selections including Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat by Hal Herzog. According to the publisher's description, "Hal Herzog, a maverick scientist and leader in the field of anthrozoology offers a controversial, thought-provoking, and unprecedented exploration of the psychology behind the inconsistent and often paradoxical ways we think, feel and behave towards animals". While listening to this book, I learned about many fascinating studies and surprising statistics on topics ranging from dog breeds and vegetarianism to cockfighting and gender differences in the treatment of animals.
Two other books that I'm thoroughly enjoying are Moonwalking with Einstein and The Mind's Eye.
