Reviews

The power of Lori Girshick's book is that in addition to using the words and stories of people actively engaged in helping animals she gives us the information of why it's so important to do so. It is inspiring to read the attitudes, ideas, and stories of people actively engaged in ending animal suffering. Learning of the multitude of harms to animals tells us why these individuals give of their time and resources, and you, the reader, are invited to join in these efforts-at whatever level of commitment works for you. This book is comprehensive in offering the reader ideas and concrete efforts of what people actually do to address animal suffering, what the harms to animals actually are that involve every day cultural practices, and how public opinions are radically changing in favor of ending animal abuses. If you love animals, this book will help broaden your understanding about the lives of animals and at the same time show you how you can really make a difference. -- Nick Cooney, Executive Vice President, Mercy for Animals Lori Girshick beautifully illustrates the trans-species ethic which has quietly emerged through the profound work and dedication of animal advocates. We are treated with a unique opportunity to hear the evolution of human experience in the cultural shear zone of animal activism - where the tectonic plates of human and animal meet. -- G.A. Bradshaw, founder, The Kerulos Center; author of Carnivore minds: Who these fearsome animals really are (2017)
