I have been an avid reader of the vegan.com blog, and so when Erik Marcus's book came out on Kindle I just had to have it. It's a concise yet thorough history of veganism, which details significant incidents in the growth of veganism that are much overlooked, such as the Smiths' release of the record Meat is Murder, which turned a lot of young people on to the idea of no longer eating meat.

Being a vegan is hard - not in finding good things to eat - that's the easy part. It's dealing with scoffing friends and family, and knowing all about the horrific abuse that goes on in every factory farm across the land. Plus dealing with the fact that the people who abuse animals have their hands in the pockets of lawmakers.

However, with this book, I gained a lot of hope. The narrative clearly illustrates that care for farmed animals is steadily increasing over time, as leaders such Wayne Pacelle, the first vegan CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, come forward and lead the charge towards vast reform of current animal farming methods.

What Erik shows is that there's much cause for hope. The world is changing, and for the better.

This is a great book for the die-hard vegan, and those just curious about what veganism is all about and where it came from. Recommended thoroughly.

I really enjoyed this book. I especially appreciated that it was non-biased (as one can be when you're speaking on veganism) and objective, but also very thoughtful and genuine to the topic. Marcus is a fantastic author and knows how to tell an effective argument without sounding arrogant. It's a easy read when and a great price for the Kindle. I hope he writes more stuff like this to get out to the general public. If you're vegan like I am, you'll also appreciate that movement is still running along, and is stronger than ever. Great job to the author for nice book!

Yet another fantastic book by Mr. Marcus. This idea is brilliant too - I learned so much about the history of veganism and it was such an enjoyable read. You can't go wrong with the price either...everyone should have this book, whether vegan or not! So informative and inspiring. Five stars!

I just finished reading this book. Let me say that it was a wonderful book. Being a vegan I appericate learning about the journey of veganism since it's begining. It's format is good for people in my family (novegans) who want to learn about veganism. Erik is not preachy and is just stating the facts. The book is well written like Erik's other books. "A Vegan History: 1944-2010" is now one of my favorite books. Whether or not your a vegan you should read this book. Maybe one day it will come out in paper form to me give as gifts, that would be great.
