Review quote

JL Goes Vegan (blog),7/14/11"Vegan for Life is comprehensive in its use of research (and the authors explain how and why and which research they use) and it's laid out so simply that me, a non-researcher, totally gets it... If you're a new vegan, or a vegan who might be buying into the hype that a vegan diet is not sustainable, read this book. If you're a vegan who wants a quick resource at your fingertips or the perfect book to hand over to your vegan-curious family member or friend read this book." Library Journal, 7/15/11"This book explains everything one needs to know about going vegan. Comprehensive and succinct, it is a must-have for nutritionists and anyone contemplating a vegan diet."show more
