‘Animalkind’: Listen to the Best Animal Rights Book of 2020

Published by Zachary Toliver.

Animalkind—PETA President Ingrid Newkirk’s new book cowritten with bestselling author Gene Stone—is already an Amazon bestseller, and celebrities continue to rave about it. Now, it’s available to everyone who’d rather read a book with their ears.

Check out a sample of the audiobook reading here:

Narrated by Jonathan Todd Ross, Animalkind: Remarkable Discoveries About Animals and Revolutionary New Ways to Show Them Compassion is full of awe-inspiring revelations about our fellow animals and how they live. Did you know that geese fall in love and stay with a partner for life? Or that squirrels bury nuts by the position of the stars and pigeons navigate by low-frequency radio waves?

Listen to Animalkind in the car, at the gym, or on a walk with your animal companion. You can download it on Audible or Google Play—or if you have fond memories of 2002, order it on CD from Barnes & Noble!

Explore the richness of animals’ multifaceted lives and find out how to protect them.

Newkirk and Stone pair their tour of the mesmerizing lives of animals with a guide to some exciting ways humans can avoid using and abusing them. They show readers what they can do in their everyday lives to ensure that the animal world is protected and respected.

Whether it’s in the realm of medicine, product testing, food, clothing, or entertainment, there are now far better, quicker, cheaper, and more humane alternatives to all the ways animals have been used by humans.

As Mayim Bialik notes in the book’s foreword, “Animalkind is a book that empowers readers with both the knowledge to understand who animals are while dispelling the notion of ‘what’ we assume animals are, and the power to change the way the world treats them.”

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
