A very interesting, behind the scenes look at what happens at a slaughterhouse/meat packing plant. The first section is very dry, so I recommend starting the chapter on the kill-floor where it gets much more interesting. This is a real-life account about a very important part of our food system, and how the health rules are really just a game of safety vs. profits.
