Some top books worth considering for this year’s holiday season:
Eating Animals looks like it’s going to be the veggie advocacy book of the decade; required reading for even halfway-serious activists.
My own Meat Market is sadly going out of print in barely a month. I don’t think any book covers the treatment of cows, pigs, and chickens in such detail. And many readers have found the dismantlement section and activist essays greatly helpful. Amazon just replenished its stock of Meat Markets, so get it while you can. Buy five for gift-giving, fulfilled directly by Amazon, and send me the receipt and I’ll send you a signed copy of my Ultimate Vegan Guide.
Speaking of which, my Ultimate Vegan Guide was updated in April. Check out the Amazon.com reviews. Aspiring vegans have found this book ultra-helpful.
Another top book for newbie vegans is Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet, which fuses macrobiotic principles with veganism in its nutritional advice.
All sorts of great vegan cookbooks have been released in time for the holidays. By virtue of his Oprah appearances, Tal Ronnen’s The Conscious Cook
is the top seller for this holiday season. I’ve heard nothing but raves about the book. It’s also tough to pass up Robin Robertson’s brand new, massive, and extraordinary hardcover 1,000 Vegan Recipes.
I think it’s always important to give new vegans an everyday cookbook, and Mark Reinfeld’s latest effort, The 30-Minute Vegan, is a great choice for the holidays.
