Committed makes Dan Matthews a hero to millions of animal lovers and to anyone who was ever mistreated simply because they were different. Having been a much-maligned high school student himself, Matthews has an expansive empathy for the most mistreated and helpless of underdogs, real-life dogs and other animals.

With an inspiring dedication to his beliefs, Matthews utilizes every weapon in his arsenal for the protection of critters, including a unique combination of bravery and humor - i.e. dressing as a huge rabbit to protest the use of animals in vehicle crash tests by General Motors and attended a fur convention in Tokyo sans clothes. His selfless demonstrations have landed him in numerous jails ranging from Hong Kong to Boston and even a psychiatric ward in Paris, France.

Committed is a poignant yet humorously convincing memoir that strums the heartstrings of even the hardest person. Buy this book, give it to your friends, and after you have read it, hug your pets and commit yourself to trying to stamp out animal cruelty - maybe not in as extreme a manner as Matthews, but hopefully with as much love as he does.
