In short, this is the vegan nutrition guide that I give to others. I have bought many copies, and have given all of them away! If you are already vegan, thinking about becoming vegan, or are simply interested in plant-based diets, I highly recommend this book.
The book is long on the nuts and bolts of veganism -- benefits and pitfalls, how to plan a varied, good tasting, healthy menu, how to get the vitamins and minerals that are more difficult to get on a plant-based diet, etc. It does not spend a lot of time on a soapbox, nor proselytizing -- I suppose the assumption is that the reader is open minded simply by the fact that he or she is reading it. Either way, it gives straightforward, no-nonsense advice on how to do it and be healthy while doing so!
One nice touch is a section towards the back called "Vegan Diplomacy" -- which has tactics of how to deal with non-vegans, especially those whose minds are a bit more closed to this kind of thing, and how to maintain good relations with a meat eating world!
This book is a "must have" if one is contemplating going Vegan or interested in the diet.
