LoveReading Expert Review of Be More Mosquito

This amiable book buzzes with energy, insights and practical guidance about how to change the status quo in a complex world.

Framed in the context of living in a world that “appears much more complex and even challenging than at any other point in history”, a place that can make us “feel out of control and overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information and news available to us”, Marc Abraham’s Be More Mosquito - How You Can Campaign and Create Change presents a practical, breezily personable, inspirational toolkit for bringing about positive change in challenging circumstances.

“I bring good news”, he promises, before sharing stories of his personal campaigns, highlighting principles and actions that can be applied more broadly. As for those personal campaigns, Marc Abraham - OBE, veterinary surgeon, broadcaster and award-winning animal welfare campaigner – successfully brought about monumental change to UK laws around puppy farming.

The mosquito of the title refers to a Dalai Lama quote, “If you think you're too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito”, a maxim that underpins this generous-hearted, motivating campaign manual.

Be More Mosquito Synopsis

If you think you're too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito. - Dalai Lama

In 2009, one nightshift spent on duty at his emergency vet clinic changed everything for Marc Abraham. Eight very sick puppies came in needing Marc's help. He subsequently discovered they'd all been purchased from a pet shop and had been born in the same cruel puppy farm. Since that fateful night, no one could have ever predicted the impact those poorly pups would have on the world of animal welfare, or indeed the future of grassroots campaigning in the UK, and beyond.

Fast forward to June 2019 and over 10 years since Marc treated those eight sick puppies and 'Lucy's Law', named after a rescued puppy farm breeding dog whose pups were also sold through pet shops, passed into law by the UK Government. It bans the selling of puppies (and kittens) by pet shops and dealers, making all breeders accountable.

Now, in his new book, #BeMoreMosquito, Marc has put together the ultimate guide for individuals to campaign for what they believe in - no matter what their cause or belief. It shows how YOU have the power to create change - and that YOUR voice matters. He shares in detail his personal campaigning tips, toolkit, and experiences from his own extraordinary journey, which included over 300 visits to Westminster. From meeting MPs and engaging with A-list celebrities, to the role of e-government petitions and developing your own campaign brand, Marc helps guide you through how to raise awareness, dispel myths, change public and even corporate behaviour, and importantly, how to make that all-important progress and influence legislation that can make our world a better place, and all for free.
