Publisher's Summary

Matt Ball and Bruce Friedrich take the plight of the world's animals seriously and have dedicated their lives to ending their suffering. The Animal Activist's Handbook argues that meaning in life is to be found, quite simply, in turning away from the futile pursuit of "more" and focusing instead on leaving the planet a better place than you found it. The critical component of creating a better world for all is thoughtful, deliberate, and dedicated activism that takes suffering seriously. The authors build a ground-up case for reasoned, impassioned, and joyous activism that makes the most difference possible, and suggest a variety of ways to live a meaningful life through effective and efficient advocacy.

Perfect for a new animal activist

If you're already a vegan activist you probably know most of the info in the book but might fill in a few missing gaps. Goes further into the psychological reasoning we think animals are lower than humans. Gives lots of activism ideas and examples of how to answer certain questions from meat eaters. Very PETA-influenced, I've read some of PETA's literature on activism tips and they are similar to this book. But in general an interesting listen, dudes voice isnt too dull and i didnt get bored half way through.

Thought Provoking

A quick read that inspires mobilization towards doing your part in informing the world about the cruelty of the animal agriculture business. I have been vegan for 11 years and wish I had read this book a long long time ago. I feel that I now know how to effectively mold a conversation in a way that will get people to consider animals.
