Overall I enjoyed reading these essays.  The essays are written by Animal Rights Activists and they can be uneven.  Some of the essays are more biographical. They essays are varied, some concern livestock and vegan lifestyles and some are about wild animals.  Activists are from all over the world.  If you are looking for inspiration on how to become involved this book is a good starting point.

For those of us that are life long animal advocates and raise our voice for change this is a wonderful guidebook I can recommend for all. The author has examples of different ways to advocate and protest.  The key parties in advocacy are included here with their successful advocacy.  You will find a anthology from 27 activists who give their own front line real life stories . I recommend everyone read this amazing and insightful book.  Very well done to the author. Thank you to the publisher and to Net Galley for the opportunity. I highly recommend this book for all interested in animal welfare and taking their advocacy to the next level. Very inspiring ~

I am all for animal welfare and, as I do work with an animal rescue, I understand the importance of promoting your organization. However, I felt like the purpose of this book was less about promoting animal welfare and more about advertising people’s products and organizations. I was not able to finish this book.

A great book particularly for teens and adults interested in animal rights and ethics.
Featuring accounts from different people in the field of animal welfare, interesting points of view and plenty of food for thought.
A lovely classroom resource for high school, from an ethics standpoint it is very interesting. 
I'm considering using some of the texts as reading exercises for my students of English as a foreign language to use as well as looking at persuasive writing and public speaking!

I am very interested in anything to do with Animal Liberation. As a biology student I am "forced" to think about animal rights a lot. (I use forced here, but I don't mean it negatively. It's just a topic that keeps coming back, which makes sense.) Ofcourse I think animals have rights, but I am always drawn away from the extremes you can encounter while researching these topics.

This book has a lot of stories about people who have something to do with animal rights. Doctors, photographers, activists. They're interesting stories that focus on the people. I'd love to have read more about the animals.
I learned some new things too, about the harvesting of bear bile for traditional medicine for example. What the smuck? 

So - a great book, with intense stories. I loved reading about the animal activists, but I still wouldn't call myself one. I eat 95% vegan, protect animals as a Sea Shepherd volunteer, but I still don't want the extreme animal activist sticker on me like some of the people in this book. But it's all good - to each their own. If you want to read stories about people who do a lot for animals, pick up this book.
