This book is very short and easy to read. Each of the short chapters is written by someone involved with animal welfare, written mostly, but not entirely, by vegans/vegetarians.

If I'd known this was going to be a 'bunny hugger' lecture on why all meat is evil and everyone who eats is evil as well, I never would have bothered to pick this up. I've no problem with vegans or vegetarians, but don't try to tell me how incorrect I am because I do raise my own meat, milk and eggs for my family. I don't lecture you, please don't lecture me.
