A fabulous read. Unlike many other vegan authors, Erik Markus makes the case for veganism (extremely well) by stating the facts. The book is all the more powerful for the matter of fact approach Markus adopts. Buy it now. If you're thinking about becoming vegan, this book will confirm time and again, that you'll be making the right choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read... 19 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Erik Marcus hits the nail on the head with this book. As a vegetarian making the transition to veganism, this book not only answered my questions about veganism (such as, will I get enough calcium?), but it also re-enforced my reasons for choosing to go vegan in the first place: to do my part in healing the planet. I applaud this book and I encourage anyone who cares about either the environment, animal welfare, their own health, or even weight loss to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compassionate Look at the Effects of our Diet 11 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Erik Marcus has done a phenomenal job researching and writing this book. I highly recommend it for anyone concerned about their health, the environment, and animal suffering. It has reaffirmed my beliefs in choosing a plant-based diet and that the right amount of animal products for optimal health is zero. It's time for everyone to make the transition to a plant-based diet and Erik has done a great job to support this argument.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life! 9 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have never read a book before that has had such an impact on my life. I read this book and almost immediately switched to a vegetarian diet, and now have almost completed my transition to complete vegan. I would highly recommend this book to anyone! It will raise questions and concerns in the most die-hard of meat eaters guaranteed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Opens your eyes and your mind! 2 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"Vegan" is an absolutely wonderful book! Facts are presented clearly and fairly. This is not a book bashing carnivores or people who wear leather shoes. There are no "guilt trips" or "scare tactics" used to try and trick the reader in to adapting a vegan lifestlye. Rather, it contains clearly-stated, well-documented facts regarding health, the environment, and animal rights issues. I sent copies to all my family members to help them understand the reasons why I feel this lifestyle is the correct choice for me. "Vegan" is very educational. I would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about better health or saving the planet and/or the animals that live here. (including humans!) This book is not "preachy" at all. You won't walk away feeling hopeless, like the world is in terrible, unchangeable shape. Instead you will find yourself excited and happy- feeling that you actually have a little p! iece of that knowledge key that can help make a difference in the quality of your (and everyone elses) life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully written 5 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Erik Marcus is a great speaker and a wonderful author. It was nice to have an updated look at vegan issues. Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating is put together very well and a pleasure to read. This book makes a great present for people in your life that wonder why you are vegan or people interested in making a change to a plant-based diet. I hope this is not the only book we see from Mr. Marcus.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it. 17 Dec 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I'm vegan. So, as always, consider the source. However, I can't say enough about this book. It's not a rambling, guilt-inducing pontification -- it's welcoming, chatty but cogent, and *positive*. I'm an avid consumer of information about veg*ism, and this is the BEST I've come across. There is no book I recommend more highly than "Vegan".

Marcus makes the intense suffering of animals something real - not just a myth that activists tote around the world. The information covers an amazing amount of material in a way that is both moving and inspiring. The descriptions of suffering and health concerns are just enough to give people reasons to continue being vegan, and others the chance to experience true people, animal, and environmental concerns.
