Product description

Review

“Humanity’s survival depends upon our learning to live in harmony with all other species. The second law of ecology is the law of interdependence. Without bees, phytoplankton, worms and trees we cannot live; without dogs, cats, horses, elephants and penguins we cannot be truly happy. We are a part of them as they are a part of us and together we are the planet Earth. Ingrid Newkirk and Gene Stone have done a wonderful service to us all with their stories of kindness and compassion. The book is truly inspiring.”
— Captain Paul Watson, CEO and founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

“Thought-provoking... Animalkind will have you thinking about the creatures that share our planet — their astonishing capabilities and emotions, and the ways in which we could improve how we cohabit with them.”
Columbus Dispatch

“What Animalkind reveals only reinforces my belief that some of the most brilliant individuals you could ever hope to meet have fur, fins or feathers.”
— Alan Cumming, stage and screen actor

"We share this planet and the same kingdom with the animals and although we feel superior to them, they have senses that far surpass ours. This book shows how much we have to learn from them beginning with compassion, simplicity and unconditional love. It is a must read."
— Dr. Marty Goldstein, author of The Nature of Animal Healing

“With wisdom and eloquence, Ingrid Newkirk and Gene Stone remind us of what we've always known, but too often forget: animals are deserving of our care.”
— Jonathan Safran Foer, New York Times bestselling author of Eating Animals

“Compendious… Meant to evoke both admiration and empathy.”
— The New York Times Book Review

“This book makes the spot-on case that the future of laboratory research will not be based on four-legged or tail-wagging models, but rather on sophisticated, human-relevant and high-tech animal-free testing methods. As Newkirk and Stone point out, these modern technologies are delivering better human health outcomes and are benefiting patients, physicians and researchers.”
— John Pawlowski, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical Faculty Physician

“This is the book to buy, read, and give to others so that everyone finally sees why they should respect and cherish all animals.”
— Anjelica Huston, Oscar winning actress

“A resourceful guide…a treasure of greater compassion, integrity and awareness, Animalkind is both a moving compendium of animals’ remarkable intelligence and emotional complexity, and a manual of all the ways we can stop accepting and contributing to their slaughter and exploitation.”
— Joy Williams, author The Quick and the Dead and The Changeling

Animalkind is a much-needed antidote to viewing other animals as second-class citizens and offers a fresh look into the cognitive and emotional lives of other animals. This thought provoking and engaging book will change your view of who other animals are and how you should interact with them in respectful and compassionate ways. It could be a game-changer.”
— Marc Bekoff, Ph.D., author of The Emotional Lives of Animals
