  • Written with humour and humanity, Mance's argument is both convincing and urgent: we need to make dramatic changes to our lifestyle if we want to prevent ecological catastrophe.

    P.D. Smith, Guardian
  • This fascinating book makes a persuasive, sanctimony-free case for treating animals more humanely.

    Ben Cooke, The Times
  • How to Love Animals is compassionate, funny and utterly readable. What's more, Mance does something of enormous value: he surprises himself and the reader, too... In marrying this openness with his clarity of vision, Mance offers a new window on the climate emergency.

    Clea Skopeliti, i Newspaper
  • Persuasive...wry and on occasion laugh-out-loud funny. Like all the best reporters, Mance possesses an open mind and a strong moral compass, he's thorough and game for anything and he's good at drawing people out... After reading this thoughtful and galvanising book, I've realised that it's better to keep trying to live in a way that shows compassion and respect for animals, and to sometimes fail, than to give up altogether.

    Sophie McBain, New Statesman
  • Through vivid reporting and conversations with abattoir workers, activists, chefs and conservationists, Mance exposes the awful way we treat the creatures we so often profess to love.

    Financial Times, *Books of the Year*
  • Unsentimental, hugely enjoyable [and] full of fascinating details... Stylishly written and deeply researched, Mance...makes a powerful case in this important book, which calls for radical change to the way we eat, farm and manage wildlife in this human age.

    Gaia Vince
  • [Mance's] lively first book argues for a profound reassessment of humans' relationships with other species ... He is a skilful writer who never shies away from painful stories, and leavens even the grimmest episodes with humour. He also has a rare ability to couch strenuous ethical arguments in terms that are warmly familiar.

  • A brilliant book of moral philosophy, environmental insight, and compelling argument... [this] book...deserves the widest possible audience.

    Edward Davey, Resurgence & Ecologist
  • Wise, funny, moving and incisive. I loved it.

    Tim Harford
  • A whip-smart, thought-provoking and thrilling investigation into one of the most essential moral issues of our time. Eye-opening as well as moving, challenging as well as frequently amusing, How to Love Animals surprised and fascinated me.
