This book is wonderful. It is divided into sections by what you are looking to substitute, and before the recipes (which are awesome) it lays out why you would want to substitute said ingredient and how to do so. The authors give various options for substitutions and then give an example of HOW to "veganize" a typical recipe based on the ingredient(s) in question.
I have been a vegan for 12+ years, so I really wasn't all that interested in how to substitute things in recipes. I was interested in the recipes, and they don't disappoint! The Cheesy No Cook Sauce is worth the cost of the book alone! Everything I have tried so far has been delicious. And, even though I have been a vegan for a while, I still read the "substitutions" guides with interest and was reminded of and learned a few things, so experienced vegans shouldn't discount the book because they think they have been there done that. This book is perfect for both newbies AND experienced vegans alike!
