The Best Vegan Books: Inspiring, Motivating, and Life-Changing

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!

In your quest to find the best veg-friendly books, you should check out both vegan cookbooks and some general vegan diet books, such as The China Study and Skinny Bitch.

Persuasive and Inspiring Vegan Books

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.
