Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rory Freedman, the co-author of the New York Times mega-seller Skinny Bitch, returns with an unapologetically sappy “ode” to how animals can enrich our lives, as well as a no holds-barred treatise on how we can better protect them. With the sassy humor and no-nonsense tone of Skinny Bitch , Rory writes of how her three dogs have completely transformed her life for the better. But she also shines the light on some unsavory truths about what happens to many dogs, cats, and other domestic animals in America and throughout the world. From the perils of puppy mills and kill shelters to the pain of declawing and tail-docking, pets face many dangers at the hands of humans. Rory inspires her readers to get their head out of their &*^% and shows them how they can help. Just as Skinny Bitch inspired millions to change their diets to improve the lives of factory farm animals, Beg will galvanize readers to return some of the love, trust, and loyalty they receive from their pets, and to change their choices and actions to improve the lives of ALL domestic animals.

Review:

“Rory Freedman speaks Dog — and Cat and Cow and Guinea Pig. In Beg, she translates the barks, the moos, and the looks in those innocent eyes so we get the message: These beings matter more than we ever dreamed, first to their autonomous selves, but also to our very humanity. And she does this in writing so crisp, honest, and engaging that you won't put this book down — at least not until it's time to walk the dog.” Victoria Moran, bestselling author of Main Street Vegan and Creating a Charmed Life

Review:

“Ready to make love an action verb? Beg is your essential handbook.” Lisa Bloom, New York Times bestselling author of Think and Swagger

Review:

“Funny and Frank.  Ms. Freedman doesn’t pussyfoot: she lays it on the line with her unembarrassed love for the dogs in her own life and a perfect plan as to how every dogophile can shake a leg to help dogs and other living beings who aren’t as lucky.” Ingrid Newkirk, cofounder and president of PETA

Review:

“Rory Freedman’s Beg is a call to arms for anyone who considers themselves an animal lover. In this seamless follow-up to her Skinny Bitch series, Freedman highlights a world that is rarely seen. Your eyes will be opened, but more importantly, so will your heart.” Nathan Runkle, executive director Mercy for Animals

Synopsis:

Rory Freedman explains her profound love for her dogs and encourages the world to embrace the importance of pets.

Synopsis:

Rory Freedman, co-author of the #1 New York Times mega-seller Skinny Bitch, returns with a call-to-arms to all animal lovers.

So many of us call ourselves animal lovers and worship our dogs and cats — but we could be using that love as a force for helping all animals. Beg is a battle cry on their behalf, as well as an inspirational, empowering guide to what we can do to help them. With the same no-nonsense tone that made Skinny Bitch a multi-million copy success, Beg galvanizes us to change our choices and actions, and to love animals in a radical new way.
