Featuring over 200 delicious recipes, the Vegan Handbook is a much needed guide for the novice as well as the long-term vegetarian. The Vegan Handbook features dietary exchange lists for meal planning, a Vegan Meal Plan and One Week Menu, a senior's guide to good nutrition, a 30 day menu for those who don't like to cook, a shopper's guide to leather alternatives, and a bit about vegetarian history. Many delicious recipes abound. Start your day off like a hearty breakfast of pancakes and waffles or learn the basics of vegan cooking. There are recipes for pasta dishes and sauces, hearty recipes of potatoes, rice, lentils, beans, carrots, and greens. Holiday and party fare include delicious egg-free cakes, frozen desserts, Halloween Horrors, a Vegan Thanksgiving, gift ideas from your kitchen. Feeding vegan children has never been easier with wholesome baby foods from scratch, healthy fast foods for pre-schoolers, and fun food activities with children of all ages in your own vegetarian kitchen. The Vegan Handbook can form the basis of any vegetarian cookbook collection. --Midwest Book Review

This book is simply a collection of articles from the "Vegetarian Journal". I'm not saying that's a terrible thing, but just know that before you buy it. It was interesting to look through the first time, but I didn't really care for any of the recipes and I haven't opened it back up since the first time I read it.

Format: Paperback
I find this book to be invaluable for checking nutrition information, health concerns, and other vegan-related issues. It is always a good idea to have several sources for these particular questions, and I think this handbook is an honest resource for this information. The authors do a thorough job of researching, and they stay away from fantastic claims.
I also appreciate the stories and the historical and cultural articles. It is interesting to read about vegetarianism from these perspectives, and it gives a person a good basic background on the topic.
I am not quite as enthusiastic about the recipes, but that could be because I do a lot of my own creations when cooking. I am also not a fan of many of the "traditional" vegetarian foods, like bean-centered dishes, so I tend to steer clear of them. I will say that this book has a wide variety of dishes, and someone who is not as creative on his/her own with cooking should enjoy them.

Format: Paperback
I really like this cookbook. It is very useful, especially for young vegans like me who need to cook for themselves. The recipes are easy follow, but sometimes complicated to prepare, and not always quick. I really like the poetry and biographies in it, but some of the information isn't completely true, for example, they talk about Ben Franklin being a vegetarian, but they don't add that he decided that vegetarianism wasn't for him after smelling fish.

Format: Paperback
I've had this book for about 6 years. It's now falling apart and some of the pages stick together from the food splatter. That is why my recommendation to the publishers is to consider a spiral bound book for future printings. I would even buy it again! My 18 year old, loves the carrot nut spread. The info on proper nutrition is helpful just to have it in one source. Although the recipes are not always fancy, they are great base recipes to start from and change to suit your taste. When you've been vegan a while, especially a whole food vegan, your taste buds change and you don't require fancy as much. That may be why the recipes seem bland to some readers. I bought the book when I first started trying out veganism and I've not regretted the purchase. It's not a cookbook so much as a handbook, just as the title states.

I bought this book for my vegan husband. He did not like some of the recommendations for recipes as they weren't all natural foods. Otherwise, I think it's a good book to have and share with non-vegans.
