“Passionately argued, tender and harrowing. After Beg, we animal lovers can no longer be complacent, petting Fluffy’s soft head by the fire or taking comfort in protecting one species. Each shattering page provokes us to rise up on our Mama Bear hind legs, growling ferociously and clawing back against widespread abuse of our beloveds. HOW. DARE. THEY. Ready to make love an action verb? Beg is your essential handbook.”
—Lisa Bloom, New York Times bestselling author of Think and Swagger
“Rory Freedman heard the call of billions of suffering animals and was brave enough to answer it in print, in the media and in your face.

"I can honestly say that Rory has done more than any other person I know to promote the cause of compassion for animals. Her energy and determination is unending and unapologetic, and it needs to be. Beg is a vital piece of literature for this growing movement in that it makes us take a look at the industries profiting off of the cruel mistreatment of animals and end it so we can live harmoniously on Planet Earth with all beings. Bravo my Sister!”
