Interview with renowned author and consumer advocate Ralph Nader about his new book Animal Envy


On this episode of Voices for the Animals Courtney Scott interviews  Ralph Nader about "Animal Envy",  his new book praised by leading animal rights acvocates.  Ralph Nader puts his incisive writing skills to work to create a fresh and innovative take on animals--and what they have to say to humans if they could speak.  Ralph calls this book a fable, because of the fanciful approach to communicating the animals' conscerns, but the information he conveys about many different species, is a result of deep research, and instead of a dry recitation of facts and statistics, Animal Envry is a fascinating exploration of the many myriad ways that animals contribute to our world, and how unique and intelligent so many of them are.

We are just on the perifery of understanding the animal kingdom in all its complexity. Animal Envy is a witty and entertaining way to learn about the beings who inhabit this planet with us. 



"A highly orriginal and visionary book that made me think deeply about human-animal relationships..."
Marc Bekoff, author "The animal Agenda: Freedom, Compassion and Coexistence in the Human Age
