How can we as animal advocates best help nonhuman animals? This is a question that gets thrown around and debated passionately among those who care deeply about animals. Many fall within different "camps," claiming that their particular approach is more "effective" despite a lack of any meaningful or peer-reviewed scientific study.

Excellent book on vegan advocacy

This is a great guide to affecting change as we fight for social justice for nonhumans (as well as oppressed humans). This book is for anyone who wants to become a more effective advocate. The real life examples of conversations provided in this book are very helpful as they illustrate how to identify what stage individuals we are talking with are in and how best to address them.
I believe this should be essential reading for all vegan advocates.

A must read for everyone who engage in vegan advocacy. Really clear and simple writing. It shows very well how we don't have to hide the vegan message in order to be effective. And this book is a short one too. So even if you don't have much time, it will only take couple of hours to read this. :)

One may expect the book to be a comprehensive research on the given subject, as I did. The book turned out to be very basic and short. I would call it a brochure for newbies.

At times I thought it was about the author himself rather than the actual subject of the book - so many parts of it are dedicated to author's description of his achievements, which are used to validate his claims instead of references to scientific research.

It doesn't stand any close to Nick Cooney's

Edit: 2nd time reading this and I have to say it’s definitely one of the best perspectives on how to educate and converse with people on the topic. I promote this to everyone I know that is interested in actually being an effective animal rights advocate

An interesting view of how the two track promotion of veganism - veganism on one hand, animal welfare on the other - looks from the view of a Professor of psychiatry who specialises in domestic violence. As such, the subject of violence runs through both his work and animal use. He points out the logical inconsistency of promoting a 'better form' of animal use while at the same time saying we should avoid it. Further, although a major section of the animal movement advocates the two track approa ...more
