This is a first-hand look into the life of a vegan. It makes a reassuring read for the current vegan, and a kick in the pants for ovo-lacto vegetarians who aren't quite ready to take the plunge into veganism. It provides information on how to deal with meat-eaters in your family, your workplace, and your circle of friends. The authors touch on subjects like vegan foods, animal rights, and fur.
Overall, Vegan Freak is a good starting place. The book lists numerous additional reading books and websites.
This is really a book for those who are already vegetarian or vegan or are considering it. It has a nice summary of the reasons for being vegan and some tips for navigating the world as a vegan.
It does generally assume that the only valid reason for veganism is animal rights (I personally tend to take a more moderate view on this). However, in general, it's gentle and encourages a cooperative approach to the world rather than "in your face" PETA tactics.
It was also a nice quick read - I read it on an airplane flight and was pretty much able to finish it in a couple of hours. Nice for those of us who have no time!
I enjoyed this book. I also enjoyed the insights for going from vegetarian to vegan interesting
I want this book!!!
