I'm not sure if we have a thread like this in here, so I thought I'd start one. Let's list some books (NOT cookbooks!) that we feel ALL veg*ns (or those wanting to become veg*n) should read and have for reference, etc.



Here's my required reading list!



Diet For A New America, by John Robbins

Fast Food Nation, by Eric Schlosser

Transition to Vegetarianism, by Rudolph Ballantine, M.D.

The Vegetarian Female, by Anika Avery-Grant, R.D.

Spiritual Nutrition and The Rainbow Diet, by Gabriel Cousens, M.D.

Becoming Vegan, by Brenda Davis, R.D. & Vesanto Melina, M.S., R.D.

I have found "Being Vegetarian for Dummies" to be helpful. I also like the "Vegetarian Times" manazine for interesting articles.

Off the top of my head, major works:



"Mad Cowboy" - Lyman

"The Food Revolution" - Robbins



I'm sure I'll come up with more later.

Yes, Vegetarian Times mag is a good one. Veggie Life mag is also good!



I totally forgot I have Being Veg For Dummies, too! It is a good reference, especially when you're new to it.



"Mad Cowboy" sounds interesting. I'll have to go find it on Amazon...

In no particular order:



"Mad Cowboy" - Howard Lyman

"The Food Revolution" - John Robbins

"Diet For A New America" John Robbins

"Fast Food Nation" - Eric Schlosser

"The Vegan Sourcebook" - Joanne Stepaniak



I also have to credit Peter Singer's "Animal Liberation" for having more to do with my decision to become a vegan than any other book.

Looks like we're going to keep repeating the same books over and over, so start reading, folks.

Food Rev, maybe?



Or perhaps Mad Cowboy, since the guy used to be a cattle farmer and all.

I would like to say either Fast Food Nation or Diet For a New America. However, most non-veggies do NOT want to hear about all of the nasty stuff in their food, so unfortunately I don't see too many of them even reading these books. People will excuse away anything to justify what they want to eat.
