Not too fussed on this one. This author was involved in the Forks Over Knives cookbook where, I suspect, he was given a strict brief to produce recipes which were healthy. In this, his own book, he hasn't been restricted and what he has produced is, in my view, overloaded with too many wheat, flour and bread based meals, and never have I seen so many recipes featuring date syrup, rice syrup and maple syrup. This author is brave enough to admit he once ate unhealthy vegan food, and was grossly overweight. I think if you have this book as your only vegan cook book, you might end up putting weight on too. There is a sprinkling of good recipes but overall, this is not for me.
