This book is a mostly "tongue in cheek" look at the world of cannibalism for survival. While it is darkly humorous, It's rough and raw and covers topics like "Does it taste like chicken?, What will my friends think? etc...
Shiguro also takes a look at cases where cannibalism actually occured, such as the ill-fated Donner party, the stranded Uruguayan rugby team and several other case histories.
While meant totally as a humorous book, it has some serious undertones
Chapters include (But are not limited to):
Why shouldn't we adopt cannibalism as a survivalist option?
A really long time ago: Cannibalism is natural
The Donner Party
Maritime Common Law, short straws and legal issues
And MANY others.
