Does anyone know of any please?

(I'm vegan, but I'm a very unhealthy vegan... I'm trying to remedy that. )

I really love A Vegetarian Sourcebook by Keith Akers. It was published a long time ago, but most of the information is still helpful. And it's free believe it or not:

The New Becoming Vegetarian is amazeballs. I know it says vegetarian but the authors detail the vegan potential of it every step of the way, too.

I was going to suggest Becoming Vegan. It's very detailed and readable.

The authors wrote "Becoming Vegetarian" first in 1995 then they wrote "Becoming Vegan" in 2000 and I think when they re-released the first book as "The New Becoming Vegetarian" in 2003 they included the material and research from the vegan book because I did a quick compare of the two when I was searching and it seemed to have all the same material.

I think the New Becoming Vegetarian might be a better bet, though, since it's more recently published and would make more use of recent research and, as I mentioned, includes anything a vegan would need as well.

Now you're making me want to buy the new one! Maybe it will increase my Vegan Superpowers.

That was surprisingly great! Very real without succumbing to over generalizations.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Vegan for Life is excellent - straightforward and up to date. It cleared up my concerns about B12 and omega 3's.

Plant Based Nutrition and Health, by Stephen Walsh, is a handy book to have around. It's published by The Vegan Society, in the UK.

I have Vegan for Life -- and when I follow their plan I'm not hungry like I am when I follow my own plan.
