"If you're skeptical about a vegan lifestyle, Eric's witty stories and personal anecdotes will make you a true believer."
Matthew Modine, Actor, Birdy, Full Metal Jacket, Stranger Things
"Eric's journey to veganism is an inspiring read. But it's his smart-ass sense of humor and relatable storytelling that makes this book tough to put down."
Richard Marx, singer, songwriter, musician "A must-read for anyone who is interested in a plant-based lifestyle."
PETA.org, "2017 Vegan Cookbooks We Can’t Cook Without"
"Clearly illustrates that veganism is sexy."
"Anyone who has ever wondered about veganism or who thinks it's impossible to go from complete carnivore to total vegan in one day will thoroughly enjoy The Skeptical Vegan. Part memoir, part vegan guide, . . . Lindstrom's illuminating tale tells of how a hilarious guy who used to think vegans were a bunch of inscrutable hippies made the journey via the express bus and never looked back (except at first). A funny and page-turning read!"
Sherry Colb, author of Mind If I Order the Cheeseburger? And Other Questions People Ask Vegans
"With one part fact, one part inspiration, and two parts humor, Eric covers all the bases of transitioning to veganism in this guide. The Skeptical Vegan is bound to be a helpful resource for even the most cynical of potential vegans. He is an expert at making the reader feel like a welcome friend and veganism like the approachable, life-changing journey that it is."
Kristy Turner, chef and author of But I Could Never Go Vegan!
"The Skeptical Vegan is so funny, you won't even notice it's changed your life until after that happens. Reading it was like getting a massage: great until it ended, and it made me mad that it didn't last longer."
Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan and director of Main Street Vegan Academy
"If Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck had a son, and he wrote a book about going from wing-devouring omnivore to vegan overnight, this would be the book. With equals parts sarcasm, honesty, and humor, Eric chronicles how he improved his life by changing his diet. What began as a bet, became a full-fledged commitment new, ethical, and compassionate way of life. . . . If you are already vegan, you will find yourself nodding your head as you read, and occasionally shouting 'YES!' and laughing at the jokes only vegans will understand. . . . Eric proves that even the most die-hard meat eater can become vegan and love every minute of it."
Michael Suchman, co-founder of VeganMos.com and co-author of NYC Vegan
"Striking just the right tone, The Skeptical Vegan inspires without evangelizing, informs without moralizing, and never forgets who the audience is. You'll think Eric was inside your head when he wrote this book because he asks every question you've ever hadand provides helpful answers to every one."
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge and The Joy of Vegan Baking
""Wit and wisdom from a down-to-earth dude, in a book that should be on the tip of your tongue every time a friend says, "So what's this vegan thing all about?" Not only is Lindstrom's refreshing voice relatable to current vegans, but it is accessible and welcoming to those who might be veg-curious, or dare I say, skeptical. An absolute delight!"
Brian L. Patton, vegan chef and author of The Sexy Vegan Cookbook (thesexyvegan.com)
"A lighthearted, funny look at one man’s transition to veganism." Toronto Vegetarian Association

I couldn't put down the book as it resonated completely with my own experiences. I run the Ginger Cat B&B (100% vegan) and 2 of my guests this past weekend were vegan newbies, just celebrating their 2 month anniversary. I told them they HAD to buy this book.
Thank you Eric, for this delightful tome, filled with humor and insights.
Finally a book about veganism that is accessible and (at least somewhat) relate-able to all, not just the vegan community. It presents veganism in a humorous, honest light. People of the non vegan community won't feel attacked or overwhelmed and, instead, may even begin to think about their life choices.
The Skeptical Vegan is a fantastic roller coaster ride of a book. It is a perfect balance of humor and hard facts about our effect on this world, the creatures we cohabit-ate with and what we can do to change things around. This book was invaluable to me as it arrived just 2 days after I made the decision to go vegan. Eric Linstrom's refreshing honesty about his journey from over zealous meat eater to ethical compassionate vegan and the community he discovered gave me a sense of empowerment when I was downtrodden by society and felt all was lost. When I began reading his book, I stopped seeing all of the obstacles in front of me and instead started to see all of the hopes and possibilities of my newly chosen lifestyle. I was hooked from the first page, and everyone close to me will be getting a copy for the holiday's! Thank you for the fantastic read, Eric. This is a book I will always return to in times of hardship when I need a reminder of why I chose this life path.
