"Every so often a book is written that is destined to change the way people think. Tom Regan has written just such a book. 'Empty Cages' is compelling because it is logical, rational, and written in an elegantly simple style.It will educate and sadden you, and make you angry, but it is never inflammatory. Reading it may not convert you into an animal rights advocate, at least not immediately, but it will most definately give you an understanding of and sympathy for the movement. And all animals, everywhere, will benefit. Please buy this book, read it, and tell your friends about it. Everyone needs a copy on their bookshelf."
"Tom Regan is the Tom Paine of animal rights, the rational visionary who, while passionately defending the rights of man, no less passionately defends the rights of animals. His contributions are historically unprecedented. The animal rights movement may have evolved from the humane feelings of compassion and mercy. In Tom Regan, it has found the voice of reason."
(Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society)
