"Garner's book will be of great value for the non-professional philosopher who is looking for a roadmap into the complex world of animal ethics. The book's strength lies in Garner's ability to present and position a variety of philosophical perspectives in a succinct and cogent manner. I greatly applaud this effort on Garner's part and encourage the uninitiated reader to delve into the philosophical complexities with the help of Garner's guiding hand."
"Garner succeeds in presenting a clearly written and eminently readable account of present thinking on the moral status of animals."
Times Literary Supplement
"For those teaching courses in animals and society or in applied ethics, Garner's book could serve as an introduction to various arguments for and against extension of rights and moral status to animals. The book is serious, concise and clearly-written, and Garner sets out the arguments fairly, even where it is plain that he disagrees."
