"Newkirk writes in direct and conversational prose that disarms while it educates." —Library Journal 

"A terrific book that uplifts you by showing you there are easy, sensible, clear ways to help animals that you might never have dreamt of." —Martin Sheen 

The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights discusses issues that many people are curious or confused about, such as why you should support "open-admission" animal shelters instead of "no-kill" shelters (the latter turn animals away, leaving the dirty work to others), why putting your dog in a harness is better than using a choke chain, and why respecting elephants' natural family bonds is a good reason to patronize the animal-free Cirque du Soleil instead of Ringling Bros. The book answers questions that people ask PETA every day, from where to get protein that doesn't come from animal products (nuts and beans contain plenty) to why anyone would object to wearing wool (lambs in Australia, the world's major wool exporter, endure painful, shockingly cruel procedures without being given any painkillers).  

The book includes a consumer resource guide with information about where to buy animal-friendly coats, shoes, and belts; which health charities have chosen the Petri dish over animal tests; and which cosmetics and household products are cruelty-free. It also gives suggestions for gifts that gently persuade people to consider animal rights issues in their daily lives, such as vegetarian cookbooks, toiletries that are made without animal ingredients, and many more.  

I haven't made it all the way through this book yet, but so far it is a plethora of practical information. I'm a firm believer in kindness for all. This book informs and arms you with the tools to be kind to all God's creatures.

No matter where you fall in the spectrum of Animal Rights, this book a guide to simple and practical everyday acts of kindness.

“If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.”

- St. Francis of Assisi
