    According to author Ricard, this book is a natural follow up to a book he published last year called Altruism The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World In A Plea for the Animals, Ricard argues that altruism, mercy, compassion, and consideration should be extended to every sentient being i.e., every living thing that is capable of feeling pleasure and pain He says, Every living being has the right to live and not be the victim of suffering imposed on it by others The book is divided into 12 chapters Here s a short breakdown Chapter 1 gives a history of the relationship between humans and animals Chapter 2 talks about how the mistreatment of animals continues because we are completely separated from their suffering Chapter 3 shares the effects of breeding and eating meat on poverty, health, and the environment I never realized how much grain was produced in poor countries just to support the livestock in rich ones Yikes Chapter 4 describes what animals live through and how they die in slaughterhouses This chapter was horrifying Chapter 5 lists the arguments people make to justify how animals are treated and their counterarguments Chapter 6 discusses the ways animals and humans are not so different from each other Chap...

    I ve read many books over the years on this topic, but this one was a bit different It is scientifically based, so many people may find it a bit dry to read, but it s so well researched and eye opening that I really think it s an important book Some parts were difficult to read, simply because it made me want to cry reading about things that we humans do to animals around the world While I didn t learn anything new regarding the meat industry, I did learn about vivisection, bull fighting, and the wild ex...

    This is an amazing book, and everyone should read it Matthieu Ricard is a Buddhist monk, a French national now living in Nepal, and he writes with eloquence, knowledge and compassion about the attitude of humanity towards our fellow creatures, those sentient beings with whom we share this planet and to a greater or lesser extent, a large part of our DNA He does not shy away from the barbarities inflicted, both in the past and in the present, upon helpless animals by humans, and delves into the mindsets and philosophies that allow us to think this acceptable He questions the attitude that places humanity at the centre of life on earth, pointing out that while we certainly have capabilities that animals do not share, the reverse is also true And he makes the grim point that although science has demonstrated the sentience, emotions and intelligence of animals irrefutably, and brought it to our awareness as never before, due to intensive farming carried out for the most part behind closed doors to satisfy our demand for large quantities of cheap meat anima...

    Dit boek spitst toe op alle aspecten van dierenleed, zowel ecologisch, economisch, ethisch e.d., maar gaat ook bijvoorbeeld over de geschiedenis van vlees eten, dierenproeven of stroperij Het is een boek dat me ergens deed denken aan Dieren eten van Jonathan Safran Foer waar overigens dikwijls naar wordt verwezen in bepaalde hoofdstukken Het boek bestaat uit veel cijfermateriaal of verwijzingen naar bronnen maar liefst 47 pagina s aan verwijzingen op het einde Op sommige momenten leek dit boek daarom eerder op een verzamelwerk van verschillende citaten of onderzoeken studies dan op een origineel geschreven boek Langs de andere kant is het natuurlijk ook wel goed om weten dat sommige dingen niet werden verzonnen om gewoon wat indruk te maken op de lezer Een hectare land kan vijftig veganisten ...
