WARNING!! - If you have a weak stomach for the sight of cut up animal carcasses, then, the graphic images of butchered beasts in this book will probably have you feeling quite nauseated after viewing just a few pages of these gory, step-by-step photographs.

Compiled by Adam Danforth - This book's bloody imagery of slaughter may also get you to thinking seriously about switching (like - pronto!) to a diet that is exclusively vegan, as well.

Oh, me! Oh, my!.... If this here book (with its graphic, full-view images of animal slaughter) doesn't convert you (like - Pronto!) into a confirmed vegan, nothing will.

From skinning the animal, to head removal, to scraping the carcass, to full evisceration, and to much-much more - "Butchering" (compiled by Adam Danforth) is a "show-all" slice'n'dice guidance book that's truly straight out of a Texas Chainsaw Massacre nightmare.

But, hey! - If you (like me) still choose to be a meat eater - "Butchering" is just a close-up look at the unsavory side of being carnivorous that one must certainly learn to turn a blind-eye to and just live with it.
