Contrary to what another reviewer wrote, I found most of the recipes to be quite flavourful; those that weren't, could easily be revived by a few extra spices. I did find the desserts to be a bit lacking, however, and have had more success by veganizing familiar recipes from other, non-vegan sources. (A third of a banana for each egg has saved many a cookie recipe of mine!)
I own the 1997 version so I can only comment on it. When I initially became vegan, I found the appendix including the basic nutritional breakdown, informational articles and sample menus to be invaluable as I was not personally acquainted with any other vegans and I was not particular proficient at utilizing the internet as a vegan resource.
There are some recipes in this book that produce more complex-tasting foods (I'm sorry I'm unable to name specific examples, I haven't made anything aside from the "Lemon Rice Soup" in eons) and will wow the belt buckles off your omnivore friends. I would highly recommend purchasing this book if you've just transitioned into veganism and you aren't a particularly inspiring chef to begin with. However if you have a pretty intermediate level understanding of spices, oils, and flavors - this cookbook will definitely disappoint. Personally I'm fairly satisfied with this book, even now, because I fell out of the "cooking/baking for myself" routine a few years back and I'm gradually learning the reigns again. I have numerous recipes bookmarked that I'll be undertaking in the months to come. It is what the name insinuates - simple and quick - so don't approach this cookbook hoping for some mind-blowing dishes to result.
