I liked that the book got was specific without being limiting. I came away with clear, practical action items to put into place - rather than just feeling slightly empowered but not sure what to do about it. Plus, all the first-hand stories and examples included in the book are great starting points for brainstorming new ideas and really illustrating how these concepts work in the real world. Definite must read!

You don't want to spend another minute doing whatever you were doing without factoring in what Caryn Ginsberg has to share here...
You owe it to yourself and to the animals.
But hey, I'm just some random reviewer on Amazon -- why act on MY advice?
Wayne Pacelle (President and CEO of HSUS) says you need to read this book,
Gene Baur (Pres. and CEO, Farm Sanctuary) says you need to read this book,
Bruce Friedrich (produced Meet Your Meat) says you need to read this book,
Peter Singer (author, Animal Liberation!) says you need to read this book...
Caryn has done animal advocates a huge service in writing Animal Impact. Whether you're leading an organization, working for one, or just an individual who cares, this book was written for you.
Our movement is full of passionate people who work tirelessly in defense of animals. It's easy to get caught up in thinking that we just need to work HARDER (or that we just need more people, more time, or more money) -- but by itself, that approach won't yield anywhere near the results we could be seeing from working SMARTER.
Just by applying Caryn's insights to how we engage with our own activism, we could be MULTIPLYING its impact!
... But doesn't that go without saying? ... Aren't we already focused on being effective?
Sure, it may seem like common sense -- but Caryn demonstrates how easily we can form poor assumptions about what *should* work, and unconsciously ignore the most important factors that affect our success.
The reality is that most of the people we're trying to reach ARE NOT thinking the same way we are... If they were, they would have already gone vegan!
We need to better understand our audience(s), and we need people like Caryn to help us learn to reach them directly, honestly, and effectively.
All the while, she stays humble; rather than push particular approaches and tactics over others, she empowers all animal advocates to do whatever we were already doing, BETTER.
Because we could argue for our own ideas all day, citing opinion and personal experience, or we could admit that we really don't have the data to answer these questions... At least, not YET... If enough people read Animal Impact and think hard about what it could mean -- for us, and for animals -- I have a feeling that may start to change.
Caryn's writing is clear, accessible, and actionable. She puts the focus right back where it belongs: on strategic thinking, smart messaging, and measuring results. This simple but seminal work is quietly paving the way for taking our entire movement in defense of animals to the next level.
So, yeah -- hurry up and read this book! :^)
It's hard to improve on Wayne Pacelle and Peter Singer, but I will note that Animal Impact is filled with tips for maximizing our effectiveness as advocates for animals, with a focus on shelter work and farm animal advocacy. With concrete examples that illustrate her points, Ginsburg walks us through how to develop campaigns, how to focus them, how to make them maximally effective, and how to measure their effectiveness.
I agree with Pacelle and Singer; I hope that Animal Impact will be very widely read in the animal protection community and that Ginsberg's insights will be universally implemented across the movement.
Caryn Ginsberg organizes her book around her "ACHIEVEchange System." Her "system" is based on seven basic principles that might seem elementary but that are frequently and widely violated by advocates.
She illustrates the principles with numerous case studies and with interviews with more than 80 experts in the animal-advocacy world.
"Animal Impact" includes a brilliant role-playing exercise in which the reader is approached by various activists in a shopping mall: one urging the reader to boycott department-store clothing, the other advocating a raw vegan diet.
I found this role-reversal exercise very helpful in understanding why our messaging usually fails to yield results, and equally helpful in understanding how we can improve the effectiveness of our advocacy.
My only complaint is that the book's format includes some repetition. But the reader can skim or skip the repetitive sections and concentrate on the well-described principles and examples.
Whether you're a professional or a volunteer for an animal-welfare organization, this book will help you make a bigger impact.
