I was expecting something here that would counter the work of Singer but instead he seems to pretend that Singers views don't exist. The old argument that animals can have no moral rights because they can not return the idea of morality is so easily countered. By claiming this argument he is infact saying that human babies and the mentally ill have no moral rights.

Roger I know Singers arguments are difficult to counter but you can't just ignore them. :)

I knew from the blurb on the back that I would either love or loath this book, and since I picked it up from Oxfam for 99p, I took a chance. Unfortunately, it soon became clear that what should have been an unbiased treatise on how we define morality and the part it plays in how we treat other animals (that is, non-human animals), was in fact a very poorly-argued 'justification' for the lack of empathy felt by the author towards other species. And upon reading the part where he claims that hunting with hounds is the best way to kill foxes (and certain other species), I felt driven to embark upon a personal first: I meticulously tore up the book and through it in the recycling bin. I dearly love books, but not so much as I hate cruelty and its advocates.

I would advise to aviod this book, if you are a vegetarian or animal-lover. This book is nothing but finding excuses to justify human cruelty and human superiority over animals. The writer is a typical narrow-minded egoistic man, who clearly favours speciesm. Terrible! He is brainwashed by our society, not able to see outside the box.

HASH(0xa0ad3c90) out of 5 stars Logically Coherent and Emotionally Compelling 21 Dec. 2014
By Trainman - Published on Amazon.com
Never in my opinion have I ever read a book which gave statement to animal rights better. Any kind of philosophy should be an elaboration of common sense; if it is in the exposition shocking then it should become comfortable in the reflection. This book was at the same time shocking and comforting, because it was an unexpected and ultimately satisfying application of common sense. The best illustration I can perhaps give of the worth of this book is that the author's arguments were wholly contrary in nature to the production of that unfortunate concomitant of utilitarianism--I mean that feeling that, even if utilitarianism were possible and desirable, it is not something that human beings would ever willingly adopt, and so it is useless as a doctrine. On the contrary, the author's arguments seem so worthy, in great part because they seem like doctrines a great majority of humanity could consciously, willingly follow. I must say that personally this book cleared up a lot of my conflicted feelings about animal rights by giving me clear tests of what animal rights were and how far they should extend. I recommend this book to anybody because it is simply written even if it is profound.
