If any reader began this book by thinking that vegans are dour zealots, that person will have shed that opinion by the end of the first chapter. This book makes veganism look cool and, even more important, doable! It is an excellent resource for both newbies and old hands at the vegan life. Get it and read it!

This book is so good that my mom stole it from me before I could finish. It is beautifully presented and extremely well written. Elizabeth Castoria's style is at once down-to-earth, engaging and informative. It feels like you're hanging out with your vegan best friend! I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Perfect guide for new or seasoned vegans. Veganism goes beyond what's on your plate and Castoria covers it all here: dating, fashion, manners and more. Witty, classy, fun and overall great read. A great guide for vegans everywhere!

I just finished this amazing book, and it is not only educational, but extremely witty and clever. I am not vegan, yet, but this book inspired me to think about my diet and incorporate more plant-based food. I loved the chapters on vegan cleaning products, makeup and clothing. Very enlightening! I feel I now understand how to be vegan, and will never embarrass myself by asking vegans how they get their iron! I will be trying some recipes that Castoria included in the book. They look very tasty!

I got this for my father who turned vegan after I gave him 'The China Study'. Honestly I'm relieved, due to time restraints I didn't think he would make time to read any book but the humor and diagrams included in this one made it a quick read. Since he travels constantly, the section about airports was really helpful as well.

Before I gave it to him I sat down and read most of it myself and actually found myself laughing out loud, something that was completely unexpected. If you have a friend or loved one that is changing their diet this is a friendly way to show that you care.

I have pretty much always been a vegetarian. There were times, growing up and even into college, when I took "breaks" for various reasons - generally health-related - but I gave up eating meat very young. My parents, especially my dad, were very supportive of my decision, but it still didn't make it easy. When I was younger, it was very hard to find vegetarian alternatives at the grocery store and unless you lived in an urban area, people thought you were odd if you didn't eat meat. Restaurants didn't have options beyond salads and it grew somewhat frustrating, not only for me, but for my friends and family as well.

Fortunately, a lot has changed since the early 1990's. Vegetarians are a lot more common and almost every restaurant has options, some more than others. Still, a few options are far better than living off salad (not that I mind salad, but we like variety, too!). Even fast food restaurants, with the exception of McDonald's, have come around and started to make it easier to go the same places as the people you know without making a big issue of things.

Of course, that's not the same as being vegan, but it's slowly getting better for vegans, too. Personally, I am not a vegan but not because I don't like vegan food. I actually eat plenty of vegan options and don't mind when products are vegan at all. I just haven't made that step.

My parents were recently traveling and came across the book How to Be Vegan, which they sent me as a surprise. I was pleased that they sent it, because they are not only showing support for our choices, but also helping us eat even better.

This is a great book. It's fairly straightforward, but the writing style is conversational and entertaining.
