"The strength of this book is the comprehensive use of scientific literature to encourage the reader to develop a global perspective on animal sentience and question our treatment of animals. Each chapter is followed by a summary of the chapter and'Questions for Discussion'. These discussion questions would be ideal for students of animal welfare and ethics." - Australian Veterinary Journal Volume 92, No 12, December 2014
