I'm in the process of becoming a vegan by first becoming a vegetarian and I thought this book might be helpful. So far I've read the first chapter and I am very disappointed. The book is extremely biased. It's so biased that it brings to mind the very stereotypes in the title vegan freak. Although I understand that animal cruelty exists the writer repeats it over and over again and leaves me waiting for the useful information to arrive. The book also criticizes others life style chocies especially those that do eat meat and those that are vegetarian( consume dairy products). The book claims that people who are not exclusively vegan do not care about animal rights which is just ridiculous. None of their facts are backed by empirecal evidence. I will countinue to read this book to the end but I can not recommend someone to buy this. I suggest checking it out in a library if interested but this is by no means a guide to become a vegan in a considerate structured manner.

If the authors wanted to establish legitimate bases for converting to or even maintaining a Vegan diet and lifestyle, they could have done much better. I read the book somewhat cursorily the first time and then returned to it when I decided to give it a second chance. My first encounter with it was not pleasant, owing to the authors' flippant use of language that, I concluded, they chose to use in order to 'shock' non-Vegans into submission. Because I am a confirmed Vegan, and because I have been subjected to a lot worse language as well as other forms of diet-abuse, it wasn't necessarily their language that was so off-putting. After the first reading, I wondered whether I was too narrow in giving the authors the benefit of the doubt in their approaches. That perception caused me to return for a second, more thorough reading. Although I was more methodical in reading it, I still did not enjoy 'Vegan Freaks.' It was painfully difficult to plod through the authors' approaches to making their case for a Vegan lifestyle. I completely agree with the other reviewer (Tobias Brown) in that I, too, was hoping for more than repetitious rants about animal abuses as being the most substantial reason Vegans are so much better humans than non-Vegans are. In short, the authors' approaches to winning non-Vegans over to our side leaves a lot to be desired, especially in their use of unnecessary (read: repetitiously redundant) language and their virtually single-issue take on the virtues of Veganism.
