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.<br><br><br><br>
Here's my required reading list!<br><br><br><br>
Diet For A New America, by John Robbins<br><br>
Fast Food Nation, by Eric Schlosser<br><br>
Transition to Vegetarianism, by Rudolph Ballantine, M.D.<br><br>
The Vegetarian Female, by Anika Avery-Grant, R.D.<br><br>
Spiritual Nutrition and The Rainbow Diet, by Gabriel Cousens, M.D.<br><br>
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:<br><br><br><br>
"Mad Cowboy" - Lyman<br><br>
"The Food Revolution" - Robbins<br><br><br><br>
I'm sure I'll come up with more later.

Yes, Vegetarian Times mag is a good one. Veggie Life mag is also good!<br><br><br><br>
I totally forgot I have Being Veg For Dummies, too! It is a good reference, especially when you're new to it.<br><br><br><br>
"Mad Cowboy" sounds interesting. I'll have to go find it on Amazon...

In no particular order:<br><br><br><br>
"Mad Cowboy" - Howard Lyman<br><br>
"The Food Revolution" - John Robbins<br><br>
"Diet For A New America" John Robbins<br><br>
"Fast Food Nation" - Eric Schlosser<br><br>
"The Vegan Sourcebook" - Joanne Stepaniak<br><br><br><br>
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?<br><br><br><br>
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.
