I like the comics and light-hearted tone she uses. I already was familiar with most of these issues but I like that she encourages involvement and really getting your voice out there, especially through the media, and telling people that THIS is how things will eventually change. I don't agree with her standpoints on everything though, namely the way she somewhat skews wildlife conservation and the way that we must deal with wildlife while still maintaining animal welfare goals. She somewhat simplifies things, and it is very obvious she doesn't know much about modern wildlife biology. But I like the book overall.
