    A must read!

    I wish this book was around when I first became a vegan! It would have saved me so much time and money. It has fabulous advice and tons of vegan product recommendations. I also really like the little bios on vegan business owners.

    I was so excited for this book and I never order new (thrifty books just make sense) but the quality of it is really sad - I suppose that is Barnes and Noble, and I'm really disappointed. I guess I will go back to second hand books, if this is what new looks like. The writer however is smart and it's a great resource for vegans and non-vegans alike.
