    One thought on “Living Vegan for Dummies”

    1. This book was created for someone thinking about going Vegan and concerned about finding nutrition from a Vegan dietwhich was me. I can say that after reading this book I have made the transition into eating a Vegan diet (which I realize is only a portion of what living vegan actually means). It helped me tremendously in understanding nutrition and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about making the transition. It was an easy and quick read with a lot of important information.I would n [...]

    2. Before you decide to pick up this book you may want to know that the author is no longer vegan. I don't really think it changes the contents of the book, but, you know, some people are purists about these kinds of things anyway I've recently decided that I wanted to become vegan, mostly for spiritual reasons, so I thought that this would be a good first book to point me in the right direction and all. I have mixed feelings about this book, and they're all to do with the author. Why? Because my G [...]

    3. This is a fantastic book to kick start your journey into veganism! It covers everything you'll ever need to know or consider.

    4. I was nervous at first: most alternative lifestyle books can be quite preachy, and I hate some of the arguments most make for the vegan lifestyles (well, a lot of lifestyles prone to fanaticism). Of course, this book had its chapter of "logical" arguments on why to convert; I could debunk most of the arguments (my biggest pet-peeve is that farm animals have be bred to be domesticated and could not become wild again, so the more pragmatic approach is to further promote the work of ethical farmers [...]

    5. Meh.I'm giving this two stars because I don't actually despise it. I'm pretty generous with the stars. One star means the book has no redeeming features whatsoever; this one is not a complete pile of garbage so I have to give it two. My newly-vegan aunt is coming to see my parents, and I found one recipe in here that my mother could make for her. And I did check through it carefully for redeeming features before I handed over the credit card, so I know that Jamieson talks about useful things lik [...]

    6. My motivation for reading this was to learn more about the nutrition and health aspects of a vegan diet. It provided good info regarding balanced nutrition with a vegan diet and how much healthier (i.e disease-free) vegans can be. I wasn't interested in animal rights or ecosystem concerns, but now at least I have knowledge of those areas from a vegan point of view. While I'll probably never be 100% vegan, I'm so glad I read this book. It made me think about the foods I eat & work on incorpor [...]

    7. Written in a simple enough manner where nutrition doesn't feel like a foreign subject. I thought it was basic enough for a new vegan and a good reminder for more experienced vegans. A good source of information. I always feel like the "for dummies" series are the cliff notes. I usually use them to locate other sources with more complete information.

    8. This had a lot of useful, clearly presented information. It did contradict other sources, especially concerning supplements, but was written in an easy-to-read manner, and made sense. I confess that I didn't even glance at the recipes. I'd have to live to be 679 years old in order to make every recipe I have now.

    9. I found it very helpful and informative! Everything is explained in a simple way; so you hardly have any questions when you finish it! The only problem might be the repetition which is quite normal I guess!!! I have learnt a lot about being a vegan (as a vegan, I did not know some of these)!

    10. This was a brilliant book to read as a new vegan. It has lots of advice on how to change to veganism, starting with food and then developing into other areas such as clothing and cosmetics. It also has very simple recipes and very important nutritional information.

    11. Some good reminders on making sure im eating a balanced diet with everything I need to stay happy and healthy

    12. It's a good book that I would recomend as an introduction to veganism but there are better ones out there on the market.

    13. The author kinda drank the vegan koolaide and there were points where I was 2nd guessing my choice based on her heavy handedness. This book is a very good reference otherwise.
