“This book is not only important, it is essentially empowering. This is a book which can and must change the world for millions of animals, and now both it and that mission are in your hands. So please read it and make it happen.”

‘Cruelty to animals goes on daily behind the closed doors of factory farms or deep in the forests where wild animals are trapped for their fur. Rich’s book exposes us to the raw truth behind these animal trades. Whilst it’s a deeply personal story, it has the potential to change, not just your own life, but the lives of millions of animals. I urge you to read it!’
