'An unbelievably inspiring book' Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees

Did you know that pigs frequently throw tantrums?
That chickens are capable of complex communication?
That sheep know their own names?
That cows grieve when their calves are taken away from them?

Jeffrey Masson delves deep into the mysterious world of farm animals and reveals just how sophisticated these creatures truly are - capable of joy, sadness, love and friendship - just like us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An unbelievably inspiring book * Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees *
Compassionate, compelling and often tear-jerking... Anyone who has a heart will be reduced to tears, if not to vegetarianism, by Masson's argument * Daily Mail *
An entertaining survey of the main characteristics of farmed animals and a sobering account of how these have been ignored * Guardian *
Presents information and anecdotes without ever preaching * Independent on Sunday *
In this latest leg of Jeffrey Moussaieff's journey through the animal kingdoms, this perceptive writer peels back our prejudices to reveal the depth of feeling and thought in animals' minds and the leap we must make to be worthy of understanding them. Eye-opening, warm, thoroughly engaging -- Ingrid Newkirk, President of PETA

“As long as animals have Jeffrey Masson on their side, there is hope”

A real eye-opener regarding ‘farmed’ animals and very solid critical analysis from the author. It can make for difficult reading at times however overall it is well worth the read.
