Six Reasons for Expanding Our Compassion Footprint
This is not just a good book for animal lovers… it’s a must read for everyone. Marc Bekoff has an inspirational way of encouraging us to care about all the animals we share this planet with, for both their benefit and ours.
“Proof that animals are wistful, altruistic, tender, jealous, and conversational. But are these interesting facts to use to enliven a cocktail party, or do human obligations ensue when we realize that the intelligent life forms we seek in space are all around us here on earth? Marc Bekoff ’s challenge to humanity to relate to those on the plate — and in other places no sentient being deserves to be — is riveting reading that may occupy your thoughts long after the last page is turned and the lights are out.” — Ingrid E. Newkirk, founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
“Marc Bekoff at his best! He enhances our respect and understanding of animals using the science of ethology and philosophical inquiry to explain their behavior, and in the process awakens our compassionate concern for all creatures great and small.” — Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian, syndicated columnist, and author of Dog Body, Dog Mind and Cat Body, Cat Mind
