A good introduction

It's good to see some vegetarian selections showing up at Audible! This is a good (if somewhat brief) introduction to the reasons people decide to become non-meat-eaters. It's easy for narrow-minded people to belittle the compassionate, but if you have a heart, it will go out to the animals who suffer the pain and terror of slaughter for your "happy meal." This audiobook also details how the environment suffers from the slaughter, as well as the health problems associated with eating meat. Perhaps Audible will consider adding books by Pete Seeger and other notable animal-rights activists. Until then, this is a good start.

Life Altering!

This audio essay opened my eyes and completely changed my life! I am so thrilled to see it on Audible!

In "Vegetarianism in a Nutshell," Friedrich eloquently tells us about the horrendous treatment of animals in today's factory farms, the environmental devastation of the industry as well as the health risks associated with eating animal products.

But don't think this piece is a downer. On the contrary, it is empowering! It is an introduction to a new, compassionate life. An awesome side-effect is greatly improved health and wellbeing. I lost weight, my skin improved and I have so much more energy!

I realized how ludicrous it is to live off of animal products. Veganism just makes sense!
