    This book will make you want to change the world for animals!

    In these difficult times, it's easy to get wrapped up in our own problems, but as PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk points out in The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights, it's important to remember that other species are facing their own hardships-which are often much worse than ours-every day.

    For example, dogs are called "man's best friend," but many are kept chained in lonely backyards 24 hours a day, with nothing to do but pace the dirt, pant through sweltering summer days, and long for a friend. Elephants and chimpanzees are beaten and chained for humans' "entertainment." Pigs, cows, and chickens are treated like meat, milk, and egg machines-crammed together by the hundreds on filthy factory farms and deprived of everything that makes their life enjoyable, even the feel of grass under their feet or the sun on their backs.

    This comprehensive guide to animal rights provides concise, straightforward information about how animals suffer in the entertainment, clothing, food, experimentation, and "pet" industries; compelling stories; fascinating facts about animals; simple steps to take to stop cruelty; and frequently asked questions, which will prepare both new and seasoned activists to be the most effective animal rights advocates they can be.

    It's empowering to know that in these times when so much seems beyond our control, each of us can stop animals' suffering through our daily choices, such as eating veggie burgers and buying products that aren't tested on animals. This book will make you want to change the world for animals!

    Loving and helping animals

    There is no better book on the market these days than Ingrid Newkirk's latest one about helping animals in trouble. This book carries the true sense, the real meaning of ethical treatment of animals. For our love of animals, it's a must. This is indeed an outstanding guide.

    Lies, all of them.

    This book is nothing but propaganda. It spreads lies about hunting and people who eat meat, and labels them bloodthirsty killers. I expected more from it; I honestly did.

    Highly Recommended

    This book I feel everyone in the country should read. They don't have to agree with the issues in the book but they should read it just to become informed on animal issues that are still happening in our world today. This book did a great job at exploring more than one issue and explaining it. The book would explain why something isn't right such as hunting and fishing. It would touch on the fact that supporters of it say this, and then it would defend it's reasoning. After each topic was brought up there was a section about what the reader could do to make a difference and the good thing about that part was that there was easy ones everyone can do and then there were some harder things to do that someone who was really passionate about it would do it. I thought this book was very informative and written well. It will make you change your mind about animal rights and will probably have you tearing up at some parts.
