Introduction

Going vegan can be terrifying, especially at the very beginning when you’re wondering what fine mess you’ve just gotten yourself into. I wrote this book to tell you everything I’ve learned from twenty years, and counting, as a vegan.

We start with a quick but thorough look at why a vegan diet makes so much sense, and I hope this information increases your motivation to become vegan. Next, we move into the heart of the book: 24 chapters devoted to everything you need to know to be vegan. We then finish off the book by visiting a vital yet neglected part of the vegan lifestyle: activism and outreach.

I hope this book increases your excitement about going vegan, and convinces you that this is a step that you’re ready to take.
