    Every animal-loving vegan will appreciate this book!

    I *LOVE* this book! Thank you, Colleen Patrick-Goodreau, for creating it. I find comfort, encouragement, and useful tips in the short, easy-to-digest sections and beautiful photos of rescued animals. I had the pleasure of seeing Colleen talk at the NAVS Vegetarian Summerfest this year, and was happy to find that a lot of the thoughts and suggestions she shared in her speeches are in this book, which means I can keep the inspirations of her speeches in front of me, in print, and refer to them any day of the year. A little word of caution - Thursdays can be hard to read b/c some of them involve descriptions of animal suffering (in the context of writers raising awareness), so I skim/skip those, but the other days are wonderful and so helpful (and more than make up for the Thursdays). It combines tips for talking to others about veganism (e.g. when confronted with hostility) with stories & pictures of rescued animals and information about various kinds of food (e.g. quinoa, kale, etc.) and how to cook it, with some recipes I'm eager to try out. In sum, I think this is a terrific resource for actual and aspiring vegans and vegetarians and I highly recommend it.
