    It made me a vegetarian...

    This book was so touching, I cried after every chapter and when I was done couldn't eat a piece of meat again. It has been almost a year now.

    AN INSPIRING BOOK FOR UNDERSTANDING THE ANIMAL MIND

    Animals are not easy for humans to comprehend but Kowalski takes us several steps toward that goal. His book is easy and compelling reading. A book needed by today's world where habitat destruction has brought us into closer contact with our co-inhabitants--animals. His insight and the stories that he uses for illustrative purposes are fascinating. A short but thrilling book.
