This Is Vegan Propaganda by Ed Winters

I get the idea, but there's only so much repeat of graphic animal that can be used to justify veganism (not that it's not an essential part, just that there's enough books, movies, podcasts, documentaries on the subject). I was hoping for something else.

I’m sorry it took me so long to read this book (and then it took me several months to finish it – I’m not great with non-fiction). I’ve been vegan for nearly five years but feel like I can always learn more. There were, understandably, some difficult sections to read in this book but they just helped to back up my thoughts on why I’m vegan. Everyone needs to read this.

Ed's tone is all wrong and it reads poorly.

Obviously it's incredibly depressing anyway but there is something so very off about the way Ed writes this. 

I thought the title "this is vegan propaganda" was a jokey allusion to how the media represents vegans but bloody hell this is political polemic structured mostly around US farms.

Sure, he does mention UK farms, but not before he's hit you with the shock factor of US practices. From language to tone to structure, it's genuinely very polemical and the title is apt.

I thought I'd force myself to read it anyway but it's put me off Ed Winters and his other work.

"I only realised chickens had feelings when I saw a lorry fall over and they got run over when I was 22" HOW DID IT TAKE YOU UNTIL YOU WERE 22 TO REALISE ANIMALS FELT THINGS

A compelling summary of the moral, ethical, societal and environmental reasons to become vegan. Very persuasive without exaggeration and mostly just using facts.
