12 Great Books to Help Animals

12 Great Books to Help Animals

I don't know about you, but when I see the horrors that go on in profit-driven animal industries I feel like I cannot do enough to help stop it. So I'm always delighted when I come across some helpful tips on how to be a better advocate.

Last year I picked up a book called 'Striking at the Roots: A practical guide to animal activism'. The author, Mark Hawthorne, does a brilliant job of laying out simple 'how to' guides for some of the most successful strategies to help animals. I could barely put the book down!

So imagine my excitement when I stumbled across his blog! And better yet found an entry entitled: 'Activism Guides for Everyone'. Here Mark suggests a dozen great books on advocacy for animals. And he even suggests who the guides would be best suited to (from newbie to seasoned activist).

I'd highly recommend anyone eager to help animals to check out this suggested reading list. Mark sums up very well:

Bottom line: We owe it to the animals to be the most effective advocates we can. And with titles available for individual activists, those working or volunteering for grassroots organizations and even kids, there seems to be an activism book for everyone. Whether its through reading one of these books, attending an animal rights conference, taking a public-speaking class or getting involved with a local group, please commit yourself to improving your activist skills and knowledge.

I'm about half way through 'Striking at the Roots', which is a great read as well as being incredibly helpful, and I can't wait to check out the others on the list!
