I enjoy this book greatly. I am not going to discuss about the book because I believe there had already been many reviewers on here who did an excellent job on writing about it. I am really glad, however, that a modern philosopher, like Singer, took great interests in ending animals suffering and believe it firmly to write such an excellent book. It is really difficult personally, for me to "persuade" others to re-consider the way they consume meat daily. I took me almost 2 years to persuade my husband to watch "Earthings" because he, like many other people that I know of, said: "I don't want to watch it....I like to eat meat and I like the freedom to choose whatever I want to eat...." I have heard this response many time from many people who will not change or reconsider the way they consume meat. The bottom line is, they only care about their individual "right"; to eat whatever they choose because they think they are entitled to. It is sad, but it also happens to the most dedicated, religious people whom I've known.
My hope is for Singer and many other writers to continue to deliver this important message to the mass - ending animals suffering and to learn how to be a compassionate human being.
It made me realize how much-more pressing animal liberation is than my previous actions of just not eating meat. It's an important book for any vegetarian, and especially for anyone who isn't yet one.
Please read this book - it's as relevant today as it was when it was written over almost 40 years ago!
