The book talks about the author's childhood and her interesting "a-ha" moments that led her to a life of animal advocacy. For me, there was a section on factory farming that was hard to read--only because I was reminded of how animals in factory farms are treated so cruelly and how most of that cruelty is hidden from us. The author sees these animals and their suffering and is clearly working hard to change that.
If you are someone that has health problems or is overweight, I recommend this book as a good first start on your journey to a more healthy life. At the back of the book, there are many recipes (breakfast, dinner, dessert, etc.). She also lists out more resources that you can explore if you want to learn more or get more recipes.
Finally, if you know someone who might benefit from losing weight or getting healthy, but is resistant to the idea of being a "vegetarian" or "vegan" (or even if they are hostile to that notion), I think this is a good book to give to that person because it's only showing how and why it's better to reduce meat consumption.
It starts with a brief (but extremely important) overview of why a person should consider altering their diet. It then moves on to an interesting discussion of why we eat the way we do - with an eye on both history and habits. But the best part of the book is the HOW to change your diet. She highlights Top 10 frequently asked questions, discusses key nutrients (in a way that didn't make me feel like I was slogging through a textbook), demystifies plant-based food options, and provides simple meal ideas and recipes. Along with well-researched and cited data, she weaves in her own personal stories and interviews with others in a way that makes the book a quick and fun read.
As a long-time vegan, I was surprised at how many times I grabbed my little post-it tabs to mark pages that had info I wanted to remember and recipes that I wanted to try! I plan on purchasing additional copies to hand out to friends and family!
