"I wish when I was trying to reform my eating habits I would have had a book like The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegan Cooking. The book you hold in your hands contains everything you need to make the transition from the standard American diet, which was killing me, to the vegan diet that saved my life. This book has the solution most Americans need right now, and it's as important as health insurance because a vegan diet can prevent most health problems. [This book] is easy to read, understand and put into practice immediately. With this book you can learn in weeks what it took me years to learn. Every family should read this book."
