    Description

    A powerful and wide-ranging indictment of the treatment of animals by humans - and an eloquent plea for animal rights

    Every cow just wants to be happy. Every chicken just wants to be free. Every bear, dog, or mouse experiences sorrow and feels pain as intensely as any of us humans do. In a compelling appeal to reason and human kindness, Matthieu Ricard here takes the arguments from his best sellers Altruism and Happiness to their logical conclusion: Compassion toward all beings, including our fellow animals, is a moral obligation and the direction toward which any enlightened society must aspire.

    He chronicles the appalling sufferings of the animals we eat, wear, and use for adornment or "entertainment" and submits every traditional justification for their exploitation to scientific evidence and moral scrutiny. What arises is an unambiguous and powerful ethical imperative for treating all of the animals with whom we share this planet with respect and compassion.

    Excellent exploration of various facets of how we relate to animals

    I have been a Buddhist for a long time and have been vegetarian off and on. I worries this book would be in your face about animal cruelty. I found this to be a very thoughtful and thorough exploration of yes animal cruelty in industrial farming, but it goes so far beyond that. I found the history of thought in the West and elsewhere regarding animal rights fascinating.

    After reading this, I decided joyfully to become vegan (I’ve never tried to give up dairy). None of the arguments to keep eating meat hold up for me. Animals are intelligent, have feelings and should be respected. I don’t want to look the other way anymore, especially when it’s not that hard to find alternatives these days where I live.

    Thank you, Matthieu Richard! This is a great book for anyone to listen to. Buddhists especially should listen to this. Compassion for all beings needs to include awareness of the harm we impose on animals and taking steps to reduce that harm.

    The narration is excellent and easy to listen to.

    I prefer the paperback

    Ricard really does his homework. This book is packed with research, as well as emotion. How anyone could read chapter 4 and still eat a burger or chicky-nugget, is beyond me.

    As an audiobook, it's unlistenable. Some have said it's the narrator's accent, but that's not accurate. I've listened to books, lectures, and colleagues from Ireland, Scotland, England, etc., and never encountered this strange enunciation. The narrator EMPHasizes EVery WORD, upon RANdom SYLlables, making you QUESTION WHEther or NOT you're FEELing the ApPROPRIATE emOtions, GIVen the matERIAL. I'm sure he's a nice fellow, but I got the feeling he wasn't really paying attention to what he was reading. Narrator autopilot.

    Also, in audio format, it's very difficult to tell when the narrator is reading a quote in the book. I've heard other narrators (Edoardo Ballerini, whom I like) use a different voice or tenor whenever they read a quote, so you can mostly tell. THIS narrator SOUNDS exACTly the SAME, all the TIME.

    Seriously, I would have preferred to hear this book narrated by Alexa. Her enunciation is more natural and more soothing by comparison. (Thanks Alexa! "You are so very welcome! Have a nice evening.")

    I stopped listening and bought the paperback. I'll *not* be returning this title, though, because I want to support Ricard in his efforts, any way I can. Besides, I still have sooo many credits to use up! :-D

    Essential reading for anyone who believes they are moral and have a conscience.

    Excellent book, very well researched and informative. I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian, but have resolved to change my views and behaviour regarding the treatment of animals after reading this compelling book.

    10 Stars, if possible.

    Open your eyes and your heart with this. An extremely well-researched work about what we all know is our darkest day as human beings.

    Bad narrator

    The narrator's accent was unbearable and annoying to listen to. I really wanted to like it, but couldn't finish the book.

    fantastic listen

    I very much enjoyed this book. I will definitely be listening again to soak up some of the facts. oh how I love regurgitating facts.
