This is an excellent book: highly readable, clear, concise, to the point and with minimal waffle and obscure philosophical concepts that might be hard for a layperson to grasp. The author examines and debunks every rationalisation we hear for the ongoing and deeply entrenched custom of subjugating, abusing, causing immense suffering to and killing of nonhuman animals. Every argument going is simply and clearly dissected.

He shows, using logic (instead of appealing to merely a sense of compassion), irrefutably that nonhuman animals matter morally, and, as a result of this, they cannot be justifiably objectified, commoditized and used as resources - especially for trivial purposes like enjoyment of taste in the mouth (and it is easily established that we don’t *need* to consume them, so it will thus only be done gratuitously). One of the usual reasons given for the way nonhumans are treated is that they are “inferior” to humans. If this could be established to be so, it would not give justification for such abuse. Abusing another being because they are deemed inferior is tantamount to bullying – and would be readily agreed to be such in most other contexts.

The end of the book is crammed with a range of reference sources, many of which are interesting in their own right.
The following is a randomly selected quote, from the many memorable ones.

“Animal rights is also human rights because animal rights is a struggle against prejudice. Prejudice involves devaluing the "out-group" in order to maintain benefit for the self or the "in-group". When human slavery was finally abolished, it is very telling that it still took decades for women to get the right to vote, and the struggle for women and minorities continues to this day.

A really great book. It is impossible to justify eating animals after reading that. It just answers to all those silly arguments that meat eaters have. Highly recommended reading to vegans and non-vegans alike.

Astonishingly well written and logical book. A book that should not need writing, but I’m very glad it has been!

I bought this book in a hope to educate myself more in regards to the misconceptions of eating meat. It certainly didn't fail to do this. The aspect i liked most about this book is the amount of other great books that it recommends - allowing you to read in more detail about specific topics.
The book has inspired me to start eating healthier and to slowly wind myself off meat.

I'd recommend this book to anyone with similar objectives.
