"The book is appropriately organized and clearly written, and there are abundant reference citations. Each chapter starts with a detailed outline to quickly guide readers to the paragraph of interest. " (Vet Med Today, 15 June 2010) "Provides a clearly reasoned and thorough theoretical framework for the evaluation and solution of animal welfare problems in the highly technological environment in which many veterinarians work. Veterinarians, managers, and technicians involved with intensive animal care and use programs in any setting will find this book extremely valuable... The book requires readers to pay close attention, but it will reward them with a valuable new perspective and approach to solving critical problems." (JAVMA, June 2010) "Provides a solid foundation for understanding and developing perspective on issues of animal welfare which have previously been addressed by varied facets of society in a more abstract manner. The authors present their well-informed opinions but advocate strongly as well for the application of objective measurement techniques and evidence-based approaches to inform the evolution of the field. The use of summary phrases to introduce each new thought or section is an outstanding approach to presenting the information, which other books would do well to adopt." (Doody's, February 2010)
