Click here to read reviewer Deborah Adams' take on Vegan for Life.

Written by two qualified authors—both are registered dieticians and live as vegans—Vegan for Life is well-organized and easy to understand, clearly stipulating if the information presented is opinion, research, or fact.

The book is divided into sixteen chapters, with an alphabetical index, notes, acknowledgements and a list of vegan resources in the back. The authors provide information for a variety of readers: new vegans, seniors, pregnant women, athletes, and babies and young children. The scope is broad, explaining the benefits of being a vegan and the importance of meeting nutritional needs (B12, iron, etc.). Norris and Messina dispel common myths about the diet and provide examples of menus and recipes.

While there are no illustrations or photographs, labeled black-and-white charts are easy to locate on the page. A particularly interesting feature of the book is entitled “What Vegans Eat,” in which seventeen vegans write about their favorite vegan meals to eat at home. These few autobiographical moments (including stories by the authors) add to the appeal of this useful book.
