A book every vegan needs to read

This book puts into words and examples what I've been thinking for a while now about how we need to act as vegans. The typical dogma that vegans are known for is harmful to the animals, people and environment and this book explains why in an eloquent way.

Thank you for writing it.

The Ultimate Battle Plan for Animal Liberation

I've been very out of touch with vegan activism for years. I went vegan, read a few books, did a little activism and then got burned out. I realized that many forms of vegan activism annoy more people than they awaken. Veganism is ethically sound, and makes so much sense environmentally, as well as from a health standpoint, and yet a lot of vegans come off as pushy snobs who think they're morally superior to everyone else.

I lost my belief that my clique is better than your clique soon after high school, but many vegans want to hold on to that belief. Honestly, I particularly don't care if our vegan clique is better than everyone else's if it's so busy patting itself on the back that its accomplishments move at a snail's pace.

Leenaert has a real strategy to quicken the liberation of our non-human friends. There is a way to expand our ranks without increasing the amount of people who roll their eyes and sigh, "Oh God, get ready for another vegan sermon," when we announce at the table that we're vegan. I don't see how anyone can possibly argue with Leenaert's overall strategy...except those who have never actually taken the time to read [or listen to] his book (you know who you are...those vegans who would rather keep their nose in the air than to look at the real studies, and the real math, on what strategies actually work to decrease the amount of animal suffering).

Gold

I never heard of this guy, but then again, I'm a pretty quiet vegan whose not knee-deep in the so-called movement because (like the other reviewer mentioned) I can't stand most vegans. I'm going to make this quick because I have to get back to watching the market, but as an investor I think there's a huge takeaway here: plant-based diets are the future and meat is going down. Eventually you're going to see diary and meat companies' stocks tank and you'll want your put options. I'll remember the name Tobias Leenaert when I make a fortune off of the cataclysmic end to people chomping on dead animal flesh and calling it breakfast, lunch and dinner. Perhaps we need a "plant-based business investments" online magazine in light out what Leenaert brings to light in his book. Great author, great narrator, five stars.

Hope for Animals

Tobias has written something much different than what we typically find in vegan material. For him, it's about understanding how immoral meat consumption is, but also realizing the difficulty in getting others to comprehend the insanity of what they're putting into their mouth. Tobias' book is a much needed "pause" that gives us time to reflect on why so many people still "just don't get it." His detractors have claimed that he just wants people to reduce meat consumption, or that he wants to lump vegans in with "reduce-tarians," but that isn't at all his position. Tobias has a strategy to draw people closer to our message, and to do so in such way that they'll actually be able to open their eyes and ears to the beauty of what veganism is all about. Few men have done such a service to veganism in a very long time.

We can do this!

This is a feel-good book for vegans...and I mean that in a good way. Instead of all the horrific facts we all know about, this audiobook lays out victories, how we can keep winning and hit it right out of the park. I think Tobias needs some bodyguards because this guy is Meat Industry ENEMY #1. Veganism is about to avalanche...if people just follow his lead, and the slaughterhouses of hell are going to be losing some serious money.

Get this audiobook. This is like our Art of War by Sun Tzu.
