Within the past ten years, the number of vegan books has exploded. Not a week goes by where a new veg-friendly book isn't reviewed in the NY Times, on a famous talk show, or by a blogger.
We now have so much selection with cookbooks as well as books on the ethical reasons to be vegan, whereas even a few years ago veganism was barely acceptable. It's amazing and exciting!
Vegan cookbooks are exploding on the market. Every time I turn around, a new and exciting cookbook is hitting the shelves, and I've tried most of the most popular ones, as well as a few smaller cookbooks. We have several favorites, so check out the updated version of our top favorite vegan cookbooks.

When I was a new vegan, I read and researched as much as possible, so I'd have a firm grasp on veganism. I wanted to know all the data on the abuse of animals on factory farms, the health benefits of being a vegan, and the impact of the animal industry on the environment. These vegan books are the best at explaining the details.
