"An impressive and carefully-written book." -- Peter Atterton Times Literary Supplement "Scholarly and well-argued." Resurgence "A lively and astute book which does a badly-needed job in clearing out a pile of bad philosophy. Anyone interested in understanding the position of animals will surely enjoy it and find it helpful." -- Mary Midgley "Creatures Like Us? is written with great lucidity, and the opposing arguments are subjected to close scrutiny. The book is valuable not only to those interested in animal rights, but also to those who are sympathetic to the social conception of moral status and personhood." -- Tuomas W. Manninen Metapsychology "Written with superb clarity as all good philosophy should be. Lynne Sharpe powerfully champions animals and asserts that the planet is no more ours than theirs." -- Richard Ryder "Admirably and clearly written, Creatures Like Us will be of interest to general readers and academics interested in the moral status of animals." -- Dr Dorothy Boorse Journal of Moral Education "A superfluity of personal anecdotes, Sharpe defends her sense of fellowship with some animals and her initial argument 'that all creatures are to be protected and cared for'." -- Stanley Shostak The European Legacy
