Whilst studying for my degree in Philosophy, I had to read this book as part of one of my courses.

I was unprepared for the moral dilemma's it caused in my life.

Within a week I was a Vegan...... completely. That was almost five years ago.

Hursthouse cuts through the masses of material out there and presents equal amounts of readings and discussion from all sides of the ethical arguments around human treatment of other animals.

One of the clearest books I have read in any subject, never mind on a Philosophy course, Rosalind Hursthouse has a fine grasp of what it takes to effectively communicate complex ideas to the reader. She assumes you know little philosophical techniques and guides you through analytical reading, be charitable to authors by overlooking trivial errors in their work and ultimately getting to their core message easier.

If I could give this book 6 stars I would. 5 will have to do. ( )
