The July/August 2009 issue of VegNews was just published, and they include a great review of Zoe's newest book, Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life. Here's an excerpt:
"Most Good, Least Harm is a self-reflective read, one that will leave you empowered, educated, and hopeful. It conveys a wealth of information, and excellent resource list, and is a welcome complement to the growing library of books that offer hope of healing the world -- one individual, and one decision, at a time."

And, Beth H., from the blog Smart Family Tips just posted a great review of Zoe's Book Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times. Here are a couple of excerpts:
"Chapter 3 encourages parents to focus on their own lives for a bit and the extent to which we teach by example. One of the most resounding ideas from this book, for me, comes from this chapter. Weil mentions that a reporter once asked Mahatma Gandhi what his message was and he responded, 'My life is my message,' which is the title of this chapter. I find myself thinking over and over about the extent to which my life is (or is not) reflective of the message I wish to convey."
"I came away from reading Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times feeling like I had useful tools to help my children (and myself) become people who think about the consequences of their actions and who are more fully aware of the world around us. There’s no question that we live in 'challenging times,' but Zoe Weil makes that journey a little easier."
