This book should be sitting on everyone's coffee table!
You can't say you love animals if you eat them. If you aren't part of the solution then you are part of the problem.

This covers the range of how humans harm animals and steps we can take to reduce this harm.

Overall a good, light read for someone new the subject. It's fairly well written and is a good summary of all animal rights issues. If you're very familiar with animal rights issues this book with be nothing new and almost too short in every section to really dig deep.

I really liked this book. The visuals were great. There was a comic or funny photo on every page. A lot of Bizzarro comics, which I really liked. The information was shocking at points, and the book made a good case for cruelty free living.
