ETHICAL VEGAN: A PERSONAL AND POLITICAL JOURNEY TO CHANGE THE WORLD

“Jordi Casamitjana’s remarkable life story will inspire you to think and act not just differently but with compassion that will positively transform your life and the world round you … Everyone should read this book.” 

Kim Stallwood, animal advocate and author of Growl

“A very personal story and a very unusual one. Jordi’s account of his life, from Spain where he was born to the UK where he now lives, is not only a physical journey but a psychological one as well. His feelings and views about the exploitation of animals, particularly those that are raised and killed to be eaten, are powerfully and poignantly described. Those who have already started to tread the vegan path will find it profoundly reassuring. Those with different views will, nonetheless, have their eyes opened to a new way of thinking. After all, there can never be too much compassion and kindness in the world.”

Virginia McKenna OBE, co-founder of Born Free Foundation
