I would recommend this book to anyone who eats or is considering a vegan diet. It's packed with no-nonsense, science-based facts and sensible, doable recommendations. It avoids unsubstantiated claims either for against vegan diets, and shows, in an easy-to-read style, how a well-planned vegan diet can be healthy and rewarding.

There's really nothing new in this book. A better choice would be "Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant-Based Diet" by Brenda Davis which is more comprehensive and balanced.

    If you are interested in becoming a vegan, or already are one but are looking to ensure maximum benefit from being one, I highly recommend this book for you. Vegan for Life answered many of my questions about nutrition, how to become vegan, what to avoid, and how much of each food group you should be eating each day. The book was extremely helpful in showing what the daily life of a vegan looks like. It lays out a variety of recommended meals (and even supplies recipes!) while going into specific details about age groups and genders specific needs. The book taught me what vitamins are essential and how to ensure I’m getting enough, and what symptoms to look for in my health to make sure I’m one the right path. The only thing I was not thrilled about with this book is it is extremely biased. From cover to cover they never mention the down sides of being a vegan. Sure they say it is hard in the beginning and takes some getting used to, but they avoid topics like how much extra time goes into planning for this diet, how in some cities finding vegan food is almost impossible, and what mal nourishment can do to your body long term if you don’t plan correctly. Before becoming a vegan I would definitely research the negative aspects harder, but for positive reasons this book is chalk full of them.

    Vegan for Life is a very informational book. It is filled from front to back cover with extremely useful nutritional information, recipes, and data charts. I loved how in depth it went on where nutrients that are lacked by a vegan diet can be found otherwise in foods, not pills. I also loved that it gave tons of meal suggestions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. On the contrary, I didn’t like that the book often became repetitive in its guide. I also didn’t think that it had enough information on studies to be talking about them sometimes. People who are interested in becoming vegan or who are already vegan would love to read this book. Even for people like me, who just wanted to learn more about a vegan lifestyle and what it entails, it gives a great informational background. It gives a fantastic guide on how to become vegan or how to improve your vegan lifestyle. However, I believe that people who enjoy their meat and milk every day, will have no use for this book. I do not think this book should be made into a movie however, because it doesn’t really have a plot of any kind or tell a story, so it would be very difficult to watch. If it were turned into a movie it would be more of a documentary than a movie. The writing style has some humor in it, but it is mostly factual writing because it contains nutritional information that is straight forward. Overall, I would give this book an overall rating of 4 stars out of 5.
