We all love animals, but does that make their lives happier? As pets, cattle and even neighbours, our lives are full of animals. How does living in our world of uncertainty affect the experiences of our animal companions? Henry Mance takes on a quest to find a more stable existence between us and other species. He meets with chefs, farmers, activists, philosophers, scientists and tech visionaries to find out not what animals can do for us, but what we can do for animals.
About the author: Henry Mance is the award-winning Chief Features Writer at the Financial Times. He has contributed to a number of other publications including Tatler, GQ and Radio Times. He lives in London with his wife and two young daughters, plus their cat and various frogs.
