I have read Rip's father's book 'How to prevent and reverse heart disease' and learned a great deal. It didn't engage me in the same way as 'Engine 2 Diet' which develops his Dad's core message of plant based eating and makes it fun. The recipes are tasty and easy. There are not too many fancy niche vegan ingredients and I have enjoyed experimenting with them. Rip has a likable style of writing and way of persuading the reader that switching to a plant based diet makes sense in so many ways. I hope this book becomes big in the UK!

A fantastic book. Unlike some commenters, I loved the references to Rip's fire station and found these added interest to the already interesting subject of a plant-strong diet for optimal health. Brilliant!

Apart from a good, humorous read, a way to live better and longer. Simple tasty recipes each with anecdotes to make the point fix.

Bought this book last September and after reading it became a vegetarian immediately. It has taken until now ( and more research) to become a vegan but I am so happy with my diet now because of this. I feel so much healthier, more energetic and I owe Rip Esselstyn many, many thanks. This is one book I can't recommend highly enough.

Would highly recommend this book to anyone, even meat eaters, the recipes are well thought out and idiot proof! Every recipe has gone right. We are on week 2 of being vegan. Something I have wanted to achieve for a long time, but found it difficult to cook vegan food with enough flavour, so alway went back to a vegetarian diet. However this book is truly amazing, I love the recipes and don't feel I am missing out on anything and feel great for it! More people need to own this book!

A wonderful book which should be read by all those seriously interested in improving their health and avoiding debilitating conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. It dispels the myths that meat,fish and dairy are 'good' for us and explains the virtues and life-saving principles of a plant-based diet and life-style. Packed with vital information and tasty recipes, this book is a must for all health conscious individuals.

I found this a really good book and made a lot of fantastic points for health, wellbeing and weight loss. I'm now reading his father's book which is also great.
The only thing I would say would be helpful for a book that does sell outside the US is more input for other countries. He talks about certain kinds of breads for example that are ok per this book, but we don't have that brand here and it takes a little detective work to find out what type of bread that is, what it's ingredients are and what the UK equivalent might be.
A simple solution would be a explanation of what style of food it is when mentioned to make it easier to find outside the US.
Also the recipes were very much geared to Texas likes and didn't really take in to account a more international palette and it would have been nice if a healthy chef had consulted on that side of things to give some other ideas.
However - that doesn't change the principals of the book that a plant-based eating style is incredibly healthy for the body and that eating junk and processed foods plus too much animal foods takes a toll on our health.
Once you have the guiding principals it's not hard to look online (such as Pinterest) for inspiration for whole food plant based recipes, or raw vegan or however you choose to apply the information to your own diet.

if you're really into having your life revolve around everything you eat and how much exercise you can manage in a day, then this is for you. i had high hopes but was disappointed once I started reading it. It's good and concise in what it contains, but it's just not the way a normal family is going to eat and there's no way I could get kids and a husband eating some of this. Nor can I train like a body builder - just wasn't my cup of tea.

I would heart-fully recommend this book to anyone that is looking to sort out the way that they eat. Although initially some of the ingredients may seem a little "foreign", once you have them, things will become a lot simpler.

I've found all of the recipes that I've made from the book to be very simple and to the point. As long as you can follow instructions you won't have any issues making any of them :]

Really good book. Interesting firefighting stories and nutritious and tasty recipes that are easy to prepare. A very good advert that a plant based diet can be enjoyable, interesting, healthier and more compassionate than the traditional meat based diet that is causing so many health problems. Highly recommended!
