This book starts from the same premise: do you care about animals? If yes, then you should try to become vegan. If not, skip it. Not all well-meaning meat eaters use all of the reasons rebutted in this book, but a plethora of anti-animal trolls has provided us with lots of "buts". You have heard some: but what about plants, but what about predators, but what about evolution, but what about this holy book, but what about protein, but what about cheese, but, but, but. If you cling to one of those buts against your love or pity or concern for animals, this book will help you make the transition to a vegan diet and bring peace to your conscience.
If you are already vegan, with non vegan friends and relatives, this book will answer all their "buts", so at least you will not have to keep repeating yourself! Just find their favorite "but" reason in this book and pull the answer out, a couple of pages long or less. Those who are able to abandon irrational or conflicting beliefs and choices (love animals but eat them), will be able to make the transition to a vegan diet. The others will know that their "but" is rebutted and may be they will stop bring it out every time they see you!
I became vegan only about six months ago and to me it is how I should have lived the first 53 years of my life. I have never eaten and felt better and I am always surprised on how everyone reacts around me. Sometimes I just don`t know how to respond at all, or don`t know how to respond correctly.
I want to be a kind and gentle vegan and this book is truly making it better for me.
In addition to discussing the ethical considerations of using animals for food, this book also addresses any nutritional concerns one might have about adopting a vegan diet and the environmental consequences of animal agriculture. Again, the authors point the readers towards excellent sources of information.
If you consider yourself to be committed to justice and/or non-violence, or are simply someone who enjoys having their own ideas challenged, this it is a must read. I highly recommend that everyone read this book and other works by these brilliant and wonderfully dedicated educators who are undoubtedly changing the world.
I hope there is an affordable print version available soon, I would buy many copies and give them to lots of not-yet-vegan family and friends. Any thinking person should read this book.
