Three-Year #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Begs Americans to Show Your Love and Gratitude for Our Furry Friends 
Releasing to coincide with National Pet Month, Rory Freedman, coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestselling book for three years, Skinny Bitch, is lighting a match under America to shake us up, stare us down, and get us to work together to be better animal lovers in her new book, BEG: A Radical New Way of Regarding Animals (Running Press; May 1, 2013; ISBN: 978-0-76244-954-5; $18.00; Hardcover; E-book ISBN: 978-0-7624-4956-9). In BEG, Rory Freedman:

  • Sheds light on specific ways animal lovers are unconsciously harming animals; 
  • Reveals her top tips on how we can be better parents to our own cats and dogs; and
