As a new vegan, I would have been lost without this book, but it has consolidated my resolve, and my belief that my choice has been the right one for me. I would also recommend this book if someone you know has just gone vegan, and you want to understand why.
It's well written and informative.......although not a book for people wanting information on the actual diet, this deals more with how to BE Vegan.
I loved this book it was great to read and fun. I also now listen to the authors Podcast. There's a link on their website.
Thanks Bob and Jenna for this wonderful book.
I was really looking forward to getting it but I didn't find it helped me with any of the problems I was having. In fact it made me feel guilty, inadequate & still confused. It was ranty & used swearing far too often.
I have found a better book to support a vegan transition is
Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant-based Diet
Also any of Isa Chandra Moskowitz cookbooks which have, not only fantastically wonderful recipes that enable you to eat veganised versions of your favourite foods, but also a great, non aggressive style of promoting veganism in a positive way.
These are the books that I think can help people become healthy & happy vegans rather than Vegan Freak.
I also found the book highly repetitive and can't help thinking that if they had made each of their points once, in a clear and concise way then the book would probably have been only about 70 pages long. There are big sections that are duplicated and this made for frustrating reading - and the thought that maybe the authors didn't have all that much to say about veganism after all. I was left a little cold and unenthusiastic about veganism by the end of it, and I don't think the Torres' really do much for the argument that you don't have to be a food nazi to eschew meat, fish and dairy.
I also agree with J. Hobartson - the book is littered with typos and errors and so a thorough proof-reading would not have gone amiss.
There are, however, pockets of sound advice and interesting information in this book, and some good recommendations on where to get further information but overall I was unimpressed.
