Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book! It is the most comprehensive guide I have ever read on animal suffering, and serves as a great book for those who are new and interested to the topic, as well as seasoned animal rights activists and vegans.

The best part about this book is that after covering all the ways in which animals suffer everyday, it offers helpful solutions in the second half of the book to these problems that all of us can help participate in.

Truly a great book and a must-read!!! I highly reccommend this book to everyone.

Building an Ark: 101 Solutions to Animal Suffering (The Solutions Series)

Building an Ark; 101 Solutions to Animal Suffering, is a one-of-a-kind tool to help stop animal suffering around the world, by offering practical, easy to follow solutions that everyone can apply in their every day lives.

Our planet IS in peril, and animals play a key role in our ecology, evolution and the very fabric of our society. It is our fundamental responsibility to protect them and treat them as sentient beings, capable of emotions and feelings of pain. It is our fundamental responsibility as parents, teachers, business owners, and community leaders to inform ourselves and instill in our children, employees, colleagues and communities the very prime, most precious and vital understanding that ALL life is precious and must be treated as such.

It would be so simple to contemplate a chapter of Building an Ark at a time in a classroom, or to read it in the quietude of your own home and to commit, a step at a time, to changing our world to be a better place for all its inhabitants. This is one book no caring home or educational facility should be without.

Format: Paperback
Building An Ark is a one of a kind book. Covering comprehensively the use of animals in our modern society and providing other relevant background, the first part of the book proves to be an invaluable resource for any student, animal lover or simply anyone curious about the world in which we live and our interactions with the animals and our environment. But more than an excellent reference book, it is also and above all a practical book with a developed second part that proposes concrete, simple and reasonable actions that can easily be put in practice by individuals, governments, businesses, and other groups. The greatest strength of this book is its empowerment value: no one can read the book without feeling that they can make a positive difference in the world. The book brings a nice message of hope and compassion!
