Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! Great Book! Very informative. Lots of great health information. All you really need to get started on a vegan lifestyle. I couldn't put it down! Good information on the way animals are mistreated just so we can eat them. Confirmed in my mind that I made the right decision to change my way of eating.
