Through exhaustive research and keen observations, Robert Grillo shines a light on what is hidden in plain sight. He deftly exposes the ugliness of animal agriculture with sensitivity and compassion. An essential read for anyone who considers themselves a conscious consumer. — Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, animal advocate, ethicist, and bestselling author of The 30-Day Vegan Challenge
Farm to Fable is an easy-to-read, accessible book that will compel readers to think deeply about the nonhuman animals they choose to eat. Grillo clearly highlights the fiction and lies behind many of those who claim that it’s possible to give food animals ‘a better life’ when we are concerned with their welfare. Read this book and share it widely. It could be a game-changer. — Marc Bekoff, evolutionary biologist and author of Rewilding Our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence
Robert Grillo has written a challenging and provocative exposé of the unconscious beliefs we hold that allow us to feel superior to animals and entitled to abuse and consume them. This is one book that is sure to be controversial.
Farm to Fable is a passionate and informed call for an awakening from the official narratives that delude and injure us, and provides inspiring and valuable insights into how we can positively transform our lives and our world. Robert Grillo pulls back the curtain of subterfuge in this lively and unsettling book. — Will Tuttle, Ph.D., author of the best-selling book, The World Peace Diet,
I got to see Robert’s Farm to Fable for Activists presentation when he came to speak for my vegan group recently. It contained great information helpful for those who are already activists and those who want to get into activism. I felt that it gave me a solid foundation of knowledge to set me on my path, and provided me with information on how to handle some situations that I may come across in the future. — Carol Ann Ripple
Robert’s presentation is not only informative, it’s personal. He provides perspective, understanding and material that’s new even to those familiar with the subject. The pacing is geared to the audience and we had an open discussion afterwards, when we all shared experiences and learned from each other. That was equally as valuable. A great experience overall! — Wendy Tarmon
