"This book is a beautifully written analysis of the moral position animals are granted in our society and the various excuses we use to justify our consumption of animal products. The language is simple and the explanations crystal clear. While it is not weighed down by numerous references, the authors provide the readers with credible sources, allowing them to verify the information for themselves and draw their own conclusions. In addition to discussing the ethical considerations of using animals for food, this book also addresses any nutritional concerns one might have about adopting a vegan diet and the environmental consequences of animal agriculture. Again, the authors point the readers towards excellent sources of information. If you consider yourself to be committed to justice and/or non-violence, or are simply someone who enjoys having their own ideas challenged, this it is a must read. I highly recommend that everyone read this book and other works by these brilliant and wonderfully dedicated educators who are undoubtedly changing the world."
