Please Read This Book—It Will Surprise & Delight You!

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (07-18-2021) #736: Tracie spends the whole hour with Henry Mance—author of How to Love Animals in a Human-Shaped World—because she found the book mind-expanding and soul-enlightening in exposing the ways that choices we make in how we live our lives (unintentionally?) affect animals, the environment and other people. The book is partially about the impact of how we live and eat, but done with droll English humor and a deep trove of information and insight that makes you laugh…and then not. Henry Mance takes our hearts and minds to new places which should come as no surprise, given that Mance is the Financial Times (UK) chief features writer and interviewer for the FT Weekend. He also has a weekly satirical column on politics and culture and was previously a political correspondent and the FT’s media correspondent.
