NotJustLaura’s Review:  Have you ever been casually browsing a bookshop only to have one of the titles leap off the shelf and onto your credit card?  I was actually looking for something to take to my father in hospital.  He has no interest in vegetarianism but I do although I cannot claim full vegetarian status.

This is a friendly little book, packed full of information for new or aspiring vegetarians – or bemused, omnivorous parents.  I found it a very easy read and would not hesitate to recommend it to interested adolescents.

The author also gives substantial attention to vegan lifestyles and I was left with the impression that vegetarian is good but vegan is better.  I’m not sure if this was intentional but it left me feeling that my almost-vegetarian lifestyle really isn’t up to the mark – and that’s a shame as surely every change we make, however small, matters?
