Reviews
"A book to spur discussion and action." --Booklist
"In this comprehensive, compelling, and troubling book, the Greeks make one point absolutely clear: the necessity is not animal experimentation; the necessity is to stop it." Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat
"This book will make all of us better citizens of the world and save many animals in the process." Howard F. Lyman
"A book to spur discussion and action." Booklist
"A valuable addition to the library of literature related to animal research." Satya
"Drs. Greek, both former animal experimenters, show that experiments on animals are about money, not curing disease." Martina Navratilova
"Everyone should read this book! Exposing the colossal corruption and bogus science behind much of the pharmaceutical industry, it amazes, enrages, and inspires. With countless clear, scientific examples the authors...dispel the myth that animal experiments have contributed to medical progress....It is imperative that animal-rights campaigners are well-versed in the wealth of information revealed here to prove that animal research is bad science and that far more sophisticated alternatives are available." Outrage
"Ray and Jean Greek show that the use of live animals in medical research is unethical, not with relation to the suffering of the animals as more commonly held, but because faulty science underpins it." Jane Goodall
"Beautifully written, urgently conceived, comprehensively researched, Sacred Cows and Golden Geese is a desperately needed book that has the potential to incite a major shift in the thinking of millions of people. By relentlessly accessing the data with a stern objectivity, and compassionate embrace of the issues, Ray and Jean Greek have doen what no other authors have yet accomplished: calmly, powerfully, convincingly explained why invasive animal research is a montrous deception. The Greeks are likely to find themselves in the midst of a firestorm. What they have uncovered will make countless industries, universities, foundations, and institutions as grand as the National Institutes of Health quake in their sleep." Michael Tobias
"Strongly recommended for all academic and public libraries." Choice
"A well-written, if disturbing book that should serve to awaken us from complacency." Library Journal
