It is one of the most inspirational books I have ever read! Reading it I constantly felt like: "This essay is so good, I completely agree. Oh, this is even better, I want to share this. No, I'll share that one. No this one. Oh wait, this is good too! Oh, I can't decide..." But what I can do is tell you to read it too! I think from now on every time I feel sad or overwhelmed by our world that is not becoming vegan quick enough, I'll just open this book and read any essay.  Because then I will know that there are lots of people all over the world who do care and who are doing everything they can to make the world a better place for everyone. I love the design of the book but I wish it would be smaller. I would love to carry it around with me and put in in my bag, so that I could read it wherever and whenever.

There was nothing surprising here if you are already vegan. The majority of essays speak of their love for animals, the environment and justice overall. I did find the book to include a high number of editing issues, which would have been easy to fix. The book was also extremely repetitive despite different authors. I suppose this was to be expected on some level but it did detract from my enjoyment.

It's a great collaborative project. One can find representatives of some quite unusual places there (incl. my small country~). The point of much efforts of Mrs. Butterflies-Katz is to conserve the original definition and meaning of veganism. Most of these essays do very well, while at the same time, many elucidate for us the situation of animal rights and veganism in various parts of the globe.
