I was browsing at a local bookstore and decided to take a look at this book. Initially I was excited by the recipes - the looked pretty good. Then I was reading through the recommendations for foods to eat for various health benefits only to find that the author is telling people to eat fish!
Why in the world would you bother creating a VEGAN cookbook only to tell people they need to eat fish??? And not only a vegan cookbook - The Vegan Cook's Bible at that. Does she think that her audience - the majority of whom are probably vegan and therefore don't eat fish - will really want to read that she thinks that you MUST include it in your diet? I'm baffled by this logic.
So despite the fact that there were some recipes that looked good, I will not be buying this book, and hopefully if others follow suit it will send the author a message that fish is not necessary and including it as a dietary requirement in a VEGAN cookbook is ridiculous.
